I wanted to take the time to show y’all some of the food I’ve been making with all these annoying meal preps. Now, I know some of you are like, “I just don’t have the patience to spend that much time in the kitchen!”
Believe me, I get it! However, what I cannot stand MORE, is coming home from a long day at work and having to think about what to make. What’s worse than that? Well, for me it would be continuously eating take out every night. As much as that seems like heaven at first, a food rut, is a food rut, is a food rut! It doesn’t matter if you get sick of the same meals being made at home, it can be the same (for me) after a long period of getting togo food.
I was blessed to grow up in a house where both my parents worked, yet we still made time for family dinner almost every night. Albeit, our family resembled more of an episode of Rosanne than something like the Brady Bunch, but it was quality-family-time nonetheless!
As us kiddos got older, we (my sister) started making the meals for our parents so that we could all eat together by the time they got home. I really enjoyed that time we shared at the dinner table. Looking back, what I love even more is that my parents didn’t succumb to the “F*#k it, let them just eat McDonald’s” attitude that some of my friends lived through. Also, I’m Italian and there’s nothing more attractive than an Italian that can cook! 😉
So, let’s take a look at some of your options from the meal preps I’ve made.
So, there ya have it folks! You don’t always have to eat just rice, chicken and broccoli like you see in so many of the other boring meal preps out there. That is of course, all down to your ultimate goal. I’m not on a losing weight plan. I’m on a mission to eat healthier, yet still enjoy the food I eat, kind of plan. Believe me, you can still lose weight eating like this compared to eating togo food or at restaurants all the time.
I triple dog dare ya to try it out. You might realize it’s not as much of a commitment as you think. I’ll let you know later on some of the ways to cut corners and make meal prepping take less time. Until then, hope all of you are well.
