Those minutes invested in fixing my lunches give me the peace of mind as well as the consistency I need to keep mysef on track. I know we are all busy and there are hectic days when grabbing something premade or stopping at a restaurant seems like an easy choice.
My workplace has two cafeterias, 2 little markets and a food court. Within walking distance there's a huge array of fast food and sit down restaurants. Heck, on Wednesdays we even have a food truck park right outside!
I have mentioned several times before that eating out ( regardless of what it is) triggers my overeating and/or binges so I have to protect myself from it by having a good plan to tackle meal time. So today, after getting myself together I decided to do my weekly prep.
I started off by trying to make mashed cauliflower. Unfortunately I couldn't find my food processor so I ended up making what I'm naming cauliflower rice. Real easy just used a masher on steamed cauliflower, added a tablespoon of butter and 1/4c of grated cheese. Divided it out to one cup servings and voila!!
While I was steaming my cauliflower, I was Also cooking some hard boiled eggs and a couple of chicken portions. Those will be my proteins for the week. I usually pair them with a quick salad using some spring mix and grape tomatoes.
My snacks for the week will be mini cukes and tomatoes. I totally messed up and forgot to buy my beloved radishes!
Once all is cooked and prepped I divy it out into containers for easy grab and go during the week. I also make my lemon juice/olive oil dressing in my tiny container and refill each day. I have some cute halos I might add to my lunch bag for dessert :)
Once I'm all done, I fill my fridge shelves with the containers in order so that every day I know to grab the ones in the front. Quick cleanup and loading of the dishwasher and lunch is all done. Hooray!!!
Hope Yall had a great Sunday.How are you prepping for the upcoming week? Take care, until next time!!
