We all have been there... Vowing to stick to a clean & real food diet and then we start running late in the morning--- forget to pack a lunch--- and then end up eating pizza or a burger for lunch. Yea and then we vow to start again tomorrow and the same thing happens over and over again.
Let's break the cycle!
How about you take 1 - 2 hours on Sunday to prep for the week?
Well here are some ideas:
-Instead of a boring salad with tomatoes, cheese, and lettuce, why not try something a little more yummy?
Make a yummy dressing or find one that has all ingredients you know and understand. I prefer to make my own with a little balsamic vinegar, water, and spices & herbs. So take some mason jars, 5 if you have a 5 day work week. Put 2-3 tbsp of your "dressing" in the bottom.
-Sautee an onion, peppers, garlic, and some herbs together. Put them on top of the dressing.
- Next chop up some veggies- my favorites are asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, cucumbers, swiss chard, and carrots. You can sautee or steam these if you want. Layer them on top of your onions and dressing. You can put any and all veggies in here that you want.
-If you have room left in your mason jar, add some spinach or romaine lettuce.
When you take them to work or school. Shake them up really good & poor them out into a bowl or just eat it out of the jar! Yummy!!
What is next? Smoothie Prep!
-Get 5-6 quart sized zip lock baggies.
-Write this on the bag: "Add 1/2 Cup Coconut water, juice, or water. 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil & 1 Tbsp of flaxseed or chia seeds 1/4 Cup greek yogurt opt"
-Put a handful of spinach & kale (mixed) in each
-1/2 Cup of a citrus fruit (I love 1/4 cup of pineapple & 1/4 cup mango) in each
-Put 1/2 Kiwi in each opt.
Easy peasy! Now you just toss the contents of the baggie in the nutribullet or blender, add your liquids. Sometimes you might want a little more liquids depending on how thin you want the smoothie!
