Sunday Food Prep


Happy Monday! A new week has begun. What will you do with it?


I had a busy weekend. Friday was fun & (clean) pizza with Tab and her hubby, Saturday was re-assigning offices at work & moving MUCH furniture, then Sunday was my normal shopping and food prep.   Sunday's Food Prep included: 
Protein chicken breast baked with (clean) bbq sauce, crockpot'd 5 chicken breasts; defrosted some cooked shrimp; browned & seasoned 2 lbs of lean ground beef; scrambled 12 eggs; hard boiled 18 eggs. Veggies: Zucchini & yellow squash w/Mrs Dash & 1/2 tsp coconut oil in steamer bags; broccoli & cauliflower w/Mrs Dash & 1/2 tsp coconut oil in steamer bags; Asparagus in steamer bags w/Mrs Dash; Snow Peas & Cherry Tomatoes w/Mrs Dash & 1/2 tsp coconut oil in steamer bags. Fruit: Apples, grapefruit, lemons, oranges, blueberries & blackberries. 

The baked chicken... half I sliced up for lunch meat, and half I chopped for my lunches.  The crockpot chicken I then shredded and used 2 cups  for Chicken Enchilasagna (pre-made for Thursday's dinner) & set aside the rest for other uses as needed.  The ground beef... used 1 lb with the Enchilasagna and the 2nd lb with scrambled eggs, brown rice (spanish style - clean), potatoes and diced tomatoes for a couple "breakfast bowls" for me and a dozen breakfast burritos for Bill & the kids. I also pre-made the bacon burger patties for tonight's dinner.  When I get home tonight I'll put together the sweet potato fries. I would have done it yesterday but I forgot. Oops!

Clean Eating - Healthy BBQ Sauce Grandma CoyoteI found a new BBQ sauce at Whole Foods this weekend (they were doing tastings) and it's incredible! I used the mild sauce on the chicken, and we're using the hot & spicy tonight on the burgers. They also have a no-sugar version! Check them out and see if it's available in your area.

Today at 5:30 I have my physical therapy, with an evaluation. I've been doing my exercises, plus stretches. Since they added squats to my routine at the office, I've also added them to my home exercises. I'm still feeling no pain in the knee (yay!), and the lateral of the quad is still coming along. I do the massage and foam roller daily to try and keep the scar tissue from "shortening" the muscle. I'm still able to do Dancer pose, down-dog, up-dog, and can almost get into full child's pose. I think as soon as I can do that, I'll be able to go back to yoga!

On a very sad note, Friday evening our family lost a dear friend,  John. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family in this incredibly difficult time. John will be deeply missed.
