Yes I’m a PINTEREST junkie and I’m proud of it 😂. As a Mom of boys I cook constantly!! It’s like their stomachs are a bottomless pit some days. The Holidays are my favorite time because that’s when I get to show off my cooking skills to others. Yes I enjoy cooking! It makes sense to enjoy it because I enjoy eating.
However, it’s super hard to eat healthy during the Holidays-right? Well it is for me. I want to have all of my cravings and deep fry anything that can move 🤦🏽♀️🤦🏽♀️. So I’ve discovered, through many failures, that I have to be intentional about eating healthy if I really want to do it.
I’ve recently discovered a great way to get back on track with feeding my family healthy food and saving time while I do it. MEAL PREP!! It’s not just for the fitness buff or the Veagan girl next door. If your pressed for time, like I am and your serious about eating right, the preparation is Key! Starting is easier than you think.
the easiest Meal Prep bowl is Chicken and Veggies. I’ve included my recipe below. Remember to keep it SIMPLE. Buy some Chicken breasts, your favorite veggies and Meat scissors . (Meat scissors are a secret weapon in every kitchen ⚔️. ) Turn on your favorite playlist and get cooking.
Chop up your chicken breast into cubes (this is where the meat scissor makes life easy)if you don’t have a meat scissor, use a SHARP knife.
Season however you like. I use Adobe seasoning and fresh Rosemary.
Load up your chopped veggies. I added mine at the last minute because I like a “crunch” to my veggies. You could also cook your veggies separate if you like. (Cooking together saves TIME😉)
I added onions and fresh garlic to my chicken and veggies mix to give it great flavor.
I did cook SOME of my veggies separate. I roasted these Chickpeas (my fav) at 385degrees for about 15 min. Season as you like. I also chopped and roasted some Sweet potatoes (yum) alongside the chick peas. I also added some Avocados (but don’t do those overnight, add them right before you get ready to eat😉) Black beans are another favorite of mine and if you want to add rice that’s cool too. I use Jasmine rice (it’s fluffy and yummy)
Add your meat and veggies to your containers and do a dance because you won’t have to cook tomorrow 💃🏾
