Sunday Food Prep Recap

Sunday food prep complete. My Counter of Chaos reigns supreme. Lol!  I took some pics...
Just for giggles, I wore my heart-rate monitor while doing my food prep. In 4.5 hours I burned 935 calories! Next week, I'll start it when I leave for the grocery shopping and see what my total burn is. I know it's silly, but it was a good reminder that just going about my day burns calories.  :-)

So... my food prep. Proteins this week are the ever-present Chicken breasts, plus I boiled 2 large chicken breasts and shredded them (for chicken enchilasagna), browned ground beef (mixed with mushrooms for moisture & extra nutrition) - the beef went toward breakfast burritos, 2 cups set aside for the chicken enchilasagna, and another 2 1/2 cups toward my stuffed peppers. Grains: seasoned brown rice (Mrs D Southwest Chipotle) mixed with crushed tomatoes. Veggies: Asparagus was on sale for $1.99/lb (yay!), broccoli, the previously mentioned peppers, zucchini & yellow squash, artichokes, green beans, mushrooms, and a variety of salad greens. Fruit: bananas, apples, blueberries, blackberries, and apple-pears! Was so excited to find them in a 4pack for $2.99! Woohoo!

Meals planned:  stuffed peppers for my lunches, breakfast burritos for the family, then dinners of: last night's Bacon Burgers, Chicken Enchilasagna, Panko Lemon/Dijon Chicken w/Mac-n-Cheese light, Easy Pizzas, Tacos/Taco Salad. All the recipes can be found here.

Ther's also a couple pics of my dinner up there, a little fuzzy (sorry!). I had planned on making bacon burgers but couldn't find my bacon bits (found them this morning, oops!), so I mixed the ground beef with some clean bbq sauce, added 1/4 cup panko crumbs - very tasty! We used the leftover bacon from making the breakfast burritos to top the burgers, along with clean pepper jack. The family used buns, but I prefer mine wrapped in green leaf lettuce. And the sweet potato fries were super yummy, too!

Snack 1: Apple-Pear and 2 hard boiled eggs

I've also got a 4 oz piece of chicken breast for just in case. :-)
Dinner: Easy Pizzas (see recipe page)

Oh! And Saturday night's anti-cake food? I picked up strawberries & kiwi :-) Everyone said the cake was fabulous (picked one up at Whole Foods), but I was happy with my fruit.

Happy Monday!
