Happy Tuesday! Or is it?? I only slept 3 hours last night then went to the gym and worked my butt off. Then I came home to clean and do food prep for the week. What was I thinking?? My eyes are closing at 1:45 in the afternoon. Hello exhausted!! But guess what I didn't use no sleep as an excuse. I still worked out and made sure I'm eating healthy this week! No excuses!!
When I start food prep I always make a list (Surprise, Surprise)
I started out cooking spaghetti squash and sweet potatoes. In one casserole dish I put frozen chicken, fresh green beans and sweet potatoes with an italian seasoning packet over it.
Spaghetti squash and turkey marinara bake and put that aside. I then cut up cucumbers and separated them into sandwich bags.
I then made Pumpkin Steel Cut Oatmeal (recipe to come). I put it in the crock pot, the crock pot is your friend!
After that I made the quinoa, rice and boiled eggs at the same time. I always have quinoa, or brown rice in the fridge so that I can make a quick meal.
When the spaghetti squash and sweet potatoes were done I added the squash to the marinara bake, put it in the oven then made Gluten Free Turkey Sweet Potato Meatballs (recipe to come).
And finally I made some no bake energy bites, I know they weren't on my list but sometimes I get a wild hair up my ass and make other things.
All of this done in 2 hours and most of it was cooking time! If I can do it so can you!!
