I have found that my body feels best when I feed it the magic combo of protein + grains + veggies + healthy fats at most meals. I try to use this formula and whatever ingredients I have on hand as my guide to preparing meals. It makes for some interesting combinations.
Today’s lunch combination:
Protein: 1 hard boiled egg
Grain: 1/4 cup brown rice
After cleaning and finishing laundry, I did my weekly meals preparation. I like to have easy access to protein, grains and veggies so I can through together easy, nutritious lunches and snacks during the upcoming week. Here’s my bounty for this week:
I poached a couple of chicken breasts in chicken broth and a 21 spice no salt seasoning from Costco. I would have made a lot more chicken, but this is all I had. I saved the broth to add to a dinner later this week. I boiled up some eggs, great for breakfast, lunch, and snacks.
Cut up and washed some romaine for easy lunch salads.
A pot of brown rice. I like to add grains to my salads, too.
And of course something for my sweet tooth:
Wonderful cinnamon sugar donut mini muffins from Jordan at Bella’s Bistro. I made them in a mini version and I only had 1/2 cup of milk, so I substituted with my caramel flavored coffee creamer. They turned out wonderful. I contemplated using those little papers, but it just called to grease the muffin pan. But I had a little trouble getting them out. Next time I’ll use the papers. Of course I snacked on a few of these.
My other eats include a bowl of Cheerios with banana for breakfast. A turkey sandwich with carrots and tomatoes for lunch:
Dinner looks like it will be leftovers, maybe with some pasta from Rossi. We’ll see. Catch ya later.
