My Quick & Easy Go-To Meals

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, I joined the SparkCoach team. Many of you know that I recently lost my home to a fire. Since then I have lost my focus and my goals don't seem to be important. I am in the process of changing my goals and will be listing them soon, but the motivation hasn't been there. Soo - i joined SparkCoach. It is helping alot and if I need advice from one of the coaches it is there!

Now for today's assignment - My quick&easy go-to meals. Since I do my chopping monthly, I try to have things ready in the freezer. Cincinnati Chili made in double batches, spaghetti sauce and lots of chicken breasts (skinless of course) and always close at hand. I also spend a day prepping ingredients for other meals.

I am also trying many new SparkRecipes to my DH delight. Let's see where this new phase of my journey takes me!

    Thank you for the tips! I don't have much room in my freezer though! But will try having a chopping session once a week! emoticon

    I'm having so much fun blogging salad recipes. I am actually trying them out before I post them. They are so pretty, and for the most part, very easy to throw together!

    So sorry to hear about losing your home in a fire! Last year one of my co workers lost his home in a wildfire.

I would imagie it would be extremely hard to keep up motivation during this time, but serious kudos to you for doing it!! You are in this for the long haul for sure!

    I think meal planning is such a big part of the process in living a healthy lifestyle and it's a great idea to have quick and easy go-to meals. I've loved all of the recipes I've tried from Skinnytaste.com. Most of them are fairly easy and there are definitely lots of family-friendly options. My husband often marvels at the fact that they're healthy meals because they're so tasty and full of flavor. Definitely not your grandma's 'diet' food!

  You can always take your old favorite recipes and tweak them to make them healthier too. Good luck to you. emoticon
