Food Planning Rambling

Thursday, May 23, 2013

I love food. There is definitely enough love to go around to all my food. There are certain times of the month I love food more than usual no matter how much I try to take a time out. So I have to plan my meals in advance, track in advance and hope that it keeps me in line. Lately it hasn't and I think I am missing the mark on my meals. If I make them too healthy then I won't eat them. There has to be a comfort aspect or I get bored. Finding that in a meal without breaking the calorie bank is really difficult.

I like to get on the interwebs and look for recipes. Recently, someone recommended to me. She has some great sounding recipes on there. I think for next week I am going to make Corned Beef and Cabbage Soup. Mmmm... I may even use the crockpot to save myself stove maintenance. That would help a lot. My goal lately is to spend as little time in the kitchen as possible, but still eat primarily unprocessed.

I am also looking for good ways to get in a high protein breakfast too. I have been falling back on eggs a lot, frittatas and hard-boiled mainly. Frittatas became another thing I had to cook and hard-boiled is getting old. I tried greek yogurt with frozen berries for a while and even though I love the taste, my body does not love the dairy. I really need breakfast to be simple, easy, quick and filling. Am I expecting too much? This week egg salad with a bowl of oatmeal has been successful, but I can already feel myself tiring of the oatmeal. I always wish it had sweetener in it even with cinnamon and vanilla to spice it up.

If anyone is reading this do you have any meal prep tips to save time? Go to low prep recipes? Breakfast ideas?

    I go to the egg whites for protein for breakfast also. Protein is always my biggest challenge. Hope you are having a great Memorial Day weekend! Keep up the good work! Thanks for the encouragement! Spark on! emoticon emoticon

    You've inspired today's question of the day! Thanks! I hope you'll get some helpful answers. As for me, I usually make some sort of smoothie, an egg and cheese sandwich, or have Greek yogurt with kashi and berries.
