I am loving my Vitamix ! As of late I have been tossing a couple of carrots & an apple into the vita with some water and voila juice! I add all different things in there too ~ cucumber, tomato, parsley, cilantro, beets etc. I can also make a quick soup without ever touching the stove. Most everything is filling and nutritious, a great quick snack, or part of a meal.
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
