Fast Food Frenzy!!!


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

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

    Great idea! Especially when something unexpected comes up - you have the fast food ready! emoticon

    Does the food stay nice doing it so far ahead? What kind of things do you put in a lunch that do not get soggy by the end of the week?

    I wish you'd come do that at my house! That is not a strength of mine. Doesn't help that my husband is a picky eater (he'll deny that). Plus our dietary needs are a lot different.

Thanks for the recommendations!
