Weigh In Wednesday 6.5.13

Pretty
Strong Medicine

I don't have a weight update today, but I do have a couple food ideas for you! I am the type of person that needs organization when it comes to eating. If I don't have a plan, then I am most likely to fall of the wagon. To combat this, I am attempting to do advanced meal prepping and stocking my pantry/fridge with healthy foods and snacks.

Here's what I did last night to get my booty in gear:

First, I picked 4 recipes that I wanted to make or have the ingredients for. It worked out to be that 2 of the recipes would work for either a snack or breakfast, then the other 2 recipes work for either lunch or dinner.

Next, I hit up the grocery store to pick up the ingredients for the above recipes. I also grabbed some Skinny Cow Cookies and Cream ice cream sandwiches, so I could have a semi-healthy dessert option when my sweet tooth hits.

After I got home from the grocery, I made and stored the Egg McMuffins and quinoa. I also prepped the ingredients for the Beef Ribs, so they would be ready to throw in the slow cooker right before I went to bed. They cooked through the night and smelled heavenly this morning. YUM!

The food I prepared will keep me fed for three solid days. This couple hours-worth of effort will save me time, calories and money over the next couple of days. I LOVE that I don't have to think about what I will be eating, and I know that I am putting good things into my body, too! WIN!

A little inspiration for your Wednesday...
