Time to get proactive!
I have a weigh in coming in a few days. The fifteenth is around the corner. Based on my last weigh-in, I have 9.5 pounds to meet my first goal. And seeing that yesterday was a relaxing Mother’s Day, I decided to get my meal prep on. Give me a chicken, 3 hours and some veggies and watch me do my thing!
1 whole chicken
Onions, Peppers, Celery (that wonderful trinity)
salt, pepper, garlic and herbs
I chopped the trinity, seasoned the chicken and roasted in the oven for about an hour and 20 minutes. Let the bird cool and voila!
I’ve got lunch through Wednesday.
I also used the leftover trinity to make miniature fritattas. For my sweet tooth, I made sugar free jello with fruit cocktail
Can I prepare and eat healthy meals? Yes I can! I am gaining back healthy options, a chance to save money, and an opportunity to get in the kitchen to create. I’m gaining it all back.
