Video: This is how I cheat on meal prep

Hello all! I’ve been behind on everything so I took a little break from the blog to catch up on everything. I really needed to pump some videos out because I do have a goal to complete Vlogmas. The video from the other day was perfect content for the blog so I want to share it with you.

I needed to make a quick trip to the grocery store to buy a few things because the house was a little bare. I thought this was the best way to show you some of my short cuts in still eating “right” when I’m in a pinch. There isn’t always a time to meal prep so this is how I make it work.

Healthy Choice Meal

This is my biggest tip for eating on the go and/or when you just don’t have time to prep a meal. The Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers are just what we like because compared to other meals (even in the Healthy Choice line) they have the less sodium content and the meals are just yummy.

We stumbled upon the Lean Cuisine pizzas during the summer when we did the vegetarian thing and we just wanted something different. I don’t hate them and I can still get my pizza without feeling so bad about it. Of course, we can make Flatout Bread pizzas too but I think these pizzas are good and quick.

Yes, it’s processed but I haven’t been able to live a processed free diet. I sometimes need the convience of these frozen foods. Most people need that convience too so I’m not going to pretend like this is a horrible thing. It is something we NEED in our life to help bridge the gap. I’m just glad there are options like this to allow us to maintain a healthy eating lifestyle.

Have you had a the Lean Cuisine deep dish pizzas? I think you should go get one to just give it a try. Which one do you think would be your favorite?

Egg White Muffins for breakfast

Egg White Muffins for breakfast

I like to share something from the kitchen every week so this week I’m sharing a super easy breakfast thing. I use to wake up every morning to make us egg white omelets. That was before I started teaching cycle at 5AM so I had to find a way to make breakfast in the morning easy and portable if needed to be. I decided on the egg white muffin because I can cook six at a time and it was a set it and forget it type of thing.   Egg White Muffins Recipe Type: Breakfast Cuisine: American Author: Angela… View Post

I’ve been cooking

I’ve been cooking

There’s been so much focus on Willie cooking, I think people may have forgotten that I like to cook too.  I must admit he’s been picking up a lot of the food slack in the house because marathon training has kept me busy.  He keeps me well fueled. I’ve had a little bit of free time to make some food lately and I wanted to share with you what I’ve been making. The Runner’s World Cookbook hit stores in October and I couldn’t wait to get a copy.  I was trying to find one in stores but no luck so… View Post
