Preparing Food for the Week

I have posted about my Sunday bulk cooking ritual before ( you can find it several posts back).  Every Sunday I cook food for the rest of the week.  It saves me a ton of time and effort during the busy work week.  I always have a healthy option on hand that I can grab on-the-go.  I switch it up every week because no one likes to eat the same thing every day!  Here’s a small look into yesterday’s Food Prep Sunday:

Steamed peas and green beans (steamables), 96% lean ground beef patties, pureed cauliflower (faux mashed potatoes), cole slaw (I mixed cole slaw mix with a tiny bit of  low-fat mayo, apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, salt, pepper, and splenda), tuna salad (tuna packed in water, a small amount of low-fat mayo, chopped celery, salt, pepper splenda),and  chopped celery sticks.

I cooked a batch of chicken with different spices.  I then cooked a separate batch of coconut lime chicken.

Directions for coconut lime chicken: Cut 10 oz chicken into cubes, coat cubes with 2 Tbs coconut flour and 2 Tbs unsweetened shredded coconut, place in pan with 2 tsp coconut oil.  After golden brown, squeeze lime juice (or use bottled lime juice) on top, cook 1 more minute.

I ALWAYS make some healthy desserts too to keep my sweet tooth in tact!  I made my Nutty Banana Bread recipe this week.  SO delicious and guilt-free :)  I also made a batch of fudgey brownies, but unfortunately forgot to snap a picture.  I have said it once and I will say it a million more times: ;earning to bake all of these healthy recipes has been a savior!  I can satisfy my sweet tooth, especially when cravings hit at night, without compromising my “diet.”  Can’t beat that.  If you want to add healthy desserts to your weekly meal preparation, check out “Sweet Treats: Guilt-Free.”  The E-book is comprised of 22 healthy dessert recipes I created.  These are my FAVORITE recipes that I tested and re-tested to make sure they were absolutely perfect.  Easy to make, low in calories, and nutrient dense.

I also whipped up a few other things that are not pictured; one of my favorites being butternut squash.  I bake cubed butternut squash in the oven and it tastes just like sweet potato tots. Yum!

Happy, Healthy, Fit.
