My project for today was food prep. To start, I bought some great local vegetables and did a garden harvest. The reason for today’s task is pretty simple- when I spend time on the weekend doing food prep, I eat better than when I don’t. And of course, when I eat well, I feel better, I work harder, and I come closer to my health & fitness goals. So this is a good step, and it’s time well spent. I spent a good part of my Sunday in the kitchen with an apron on, and that really is a happy place for me.
Here are some photos from my day:
first row: our local vegetable shopping trip, squash puree, washed and chopped broccoli, prepared turkey scallopine (a favourite of mine!)
second row: tomatoes washed & chopped, grated zucchini
third row: zucchini & tomato puree, taco seasoning (similar to Rachael Ray’s recipe), bean taco zucchini boats (beans, taco seasoning, salsa, tomatoes, cheese), garden greens chopped & ready for salad
fourth row: refresher juice (cucumber & celery juice with coconut water), beet juice, pretty beets (and my nails happened to coordinate!) and ingredients for overnight oats (berries, almond butter, Greek yogurt, coconut milk, oats- I change this up nearly every time, depending on what I have on hand).
I had a productive day, and my fridge and freezer look a little happier! Lots of great food prepared so I can be a little more organized and hopefully healthier this week.
Cheers to time-saving and healthy eating this week!
