Cooking ahead today

Saturday, February 09, 2013

Weighing in today at 180.2. Yay! The scale is moving in the right direction. My plan for this weekend is to cook ahead for the week. Cooking ahead and weighing out portions really helps keep me on track. I have 5 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts to brown up, and put into 3 oz portions. And I have 3 lbs of ground turkey to brown up, too. Below is a sausage spice recipe to add to ground turkey, to enjoy sausage taste without the excess fat.

I'm going to a full body workout class at the gym from 12-1, followed by a 30 min abs class.


Recipe for sausage spice: a dry herb blend for giving any ground meat a "sausage" flavoring. This is enough to mix in 1 pound of meat.

1 tsp Paprika
1 Tbsp Salt
1 tsp Black pepper
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Fennel or Caraway seed
1 tsp Red Pepper flakes


Minutes this week, running total:

    I will try that recipe as it is different from the one I use. Just "spice" things up a bit!

Thanks for the recipe. I love planning and cooking my meals ahead of time, it eliminates the "fudge factor" :)

    Looks like a lovely spice mix. I might try it in a veggie burger concoction...

I'm also feeling the need to do some meal prep for the next few days. Makes a big difference...
