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

When we crave junk food or desire to go on a binge eating frenzy, instead of beating ourselves up, we need to learn to ask ourselves WHY. Those desires come from somewhere & its usually not food related. Learn to ask why we want it? Recognize triggers & determine to find alternative ways to feed those triggers without the use of food. Knowledge is power & we can beat the cravings without beating ourself up!!
