Make it last a long time! Really. Get out that freezerware. Go ahead eat and enjoy then freeze portion sizes for days, weeks later. One day won't break your healthy life choices but all those leftovers can haunt you. Freeze, portion control. Then repeat at Christmas. Enjoy your Holiday Everyone!
I'm all about "Fast" food! Every Sunday I shop, and then spend about 2 hours preparing foods for the week. From BBQing chicken tenders and petit sirloins (freeze in portions and label so I don't have to weigh anything) to hardboiling a dozen eggs for snacks and quick protein, cutting broccoli and cauliflour in meal size portions, cooking/freezing portions of barley, brown rice, making my lunches for the week in ziploc "to go" paks - make possible nutritious "fast" food build your own meals!!!
Great Family Meal ideas: 1. Build Your Own (BYO) salads, use the sliced chicken or eggs for protein 2. BYO Stir fry - PAM in skillet with one of your whole grains with some soy sauce, fresh peppers and onions or other veggies, and some sliced steak or chicken 3. BYO "Rice Bowl" with leftovers
Divide cookie dough into cookie sized portions. Quick freeze these in a single layer on a cookie sheet and once frozen, portion into freezer bags. After sealing, write baking directions on each bag. Bags of one or two are great for a quick fix, bags of 6 to 8 are great when you have company!
