Today is prep day. I pick up my CSA box tonight and will put all those vegetables to use as soon as I get them. But until then, I'm low on a lot. Breakfast was a variety of sauted vegetables with 1/2 avocado and a True Story chicken sausage. I also had a small bowl of fresh raspberries. after enjoying my almond milk latte yesterday i felt inspired to make some homemade almond milk so I could have another latte this morning. It was the first time I used my espresso machine in a very long time and I was surprised it still worked!
I snacked on a handful of nuts around lunchtime and had a large taco salad around 4pm for my early dinner. I did my taco meat on the side and my husband did his on top.
The evening was consumed with a lake swim at Rollins Lake. Afterward, I drank a smoothie on my way home so I could get straight to work preping the remaining meals for the week. I have a meeting every single night this week, plus I leave on Friday for...yes...another race. I figure that I won't have time to cook much of anything the rest of the week, so I preped: salads, pulled chicken (in the slow cooker all afternoon), grilled chicken drumsticks and sausages, sauted vegetables, fresh salsa and fresh basil pesto.
I also soaked nuts all mornings started those in the dehydrator tonight.
In total, it took me about 1 1/2 hours to get all of this prepped and cooked, but I won't spend much more time in the kitchen this week. And in the end, I won't be reaching for something that I know is bad for me because I have all of these good choice to pick from instead.
