This week--stock up simple easy quick meals

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Even though sometimes I spend hours preparing a meal from scratch, this week I learned that more often, I just want an easy meal. Because there are so many times when I can't or don't want to spend hours cooking. And if I know my meal is enough and well-rounded, I eat and it's done, and I don't worry about what else to eat. So I need to plan accordingly. I usually have quick & easy staples handy for breakfast and lunch, but not so much for dinner. This week my goal is to have quick & easy dinner options. Since breakfast and lunch are heavy on the carbs, I will be sure to have greens (salad), orange/red veggies or fruit, and a good solid quick protein option on hand for dinner when I don't feel like cooking--cold bean salad, refried beans, eggs, tofu, canned salmon, pre-cooked meat. Not as an accidental leftover, but on purpose! Come to think of it, I'll be solo-parenting this week, all the more reason to plan ahead. This will make it easier to track & meet my calorie goals too.
