Between work, and now the gym, I just don’t want to make the time every night to make new things. Luckily, I don’t mind eating the same thing every day all week. So, on Sundays I make all my meals for the week, individually packed and ready to go.
Pumpkin Refrigerator Oatmeal
- 1/2 cup oatmeal (should be old fashioned but I have some quick-cook that needs to be used up)
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- couple tablespoons pumpkin puree (basically, the can divided by the 5 servings I’m making)
- packet of Truvia
- generous tsp of pumpkin pie spice
mix together, refrigerate until morning. I make all of the weeks worth on Sunday and it’s still good, or even better, by Friday.
Faux taco chicken
- 3 oz cooked chicken
- 1/2 cup brown rice
- Big can crushed/diced tomato (whichever I’ve got)
- Bag of frozen corn
- packet of low sodium taco seasoning
I usually just bake some chicken breasts with salt/pepper. Alton Brown is my hero; the only way I’m able to make edible brown rice: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/baked-brown-rice-recipe.html
Simmer tomato, corn, seasoning while I’m working on other things.
I’m feeling lazy re: fruit this week, so it’s a fruit cup. Unsweetened applesauce, peaches, or mandarin oranges.
3/4 cup Chobani 0% Plain (big container divided by 5, see a trend here?), 1/2 cup blueberries + packet of Truvia, 1/4 cup Khashi Go Lean Crunch
This is still in the crockpot, so we’ll see how it comes out
I had a sweet potato and a russet potato that need using, cubed into bottom of crockpot, along with a couple of red potatoes and half a red onion left over from last week. Added two bags of frozen green beans. Then 6 pork chops topped with Dinosaur Slathering Sauce, maybe 3/4 of the bottle? Smells good, worried that the green beans will be over done.
