Yesterday, there were four pork steaks in the package for around $8.00. I bought them and took them home. I used Pam in the pan and fried each one until it was brown on each side. Then I put it in a baking dish with some water in the bottom and then baked it at 250 until they were done, several
hours. Then I let them cool. Then I took baggies and my scale. I cut the meat apart and put 4 oz of meat in each baggie and put them in the freezer. Each serving cost me about 60 cents each bag, not bad for a serving, and I can mix the meat with veggies of my choice and have them ready. I do this

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
I've been finding that if I prepare my breakfast the day before (I blogged about my breakfast, lowfat good protein, yogurt, fruit and healthy cereal), and prepare my lunch, I am more consistent with my meals and staying on track
When preparing lunch or dinner I now prepare two non-starchy veggies--like cauliflower & broccoli as well as my protein and carb. This not only adds to my nutrition and fiber but is more filling and prevents over-eating on more fattening foods.267
