Will it really be in the 70's on Wednesday? It remains to be seen.
Speaking of Wednesday, have you devoted any of your Sunday to food prep? I've currently got about four servings of my favorite black bean soup in the 'fridge:
That way, when I get hungry for lunch this week, I know I've got a healthy one waiting for me and I won't have to catch myself reaching for this or that between feedings and diaper changes.
Food prep is really a good thing when you're living the fit life. It's so easy to get derailed from your diet when time is not on your side, so having a few things to reach for makes reaching for something healthy a lot easier. Some of my favorite make-aheads include:
So I'm all about healthy eating, obviously. But I've got a major sweet tooth. True, it's inactive right now as I gave up sweets for Lent, but that doesn't mean I've totally forgotten what a darn good chocolate chip cookie tastes like. In fact, I made some last week—but I didn't eat any, just so you know! I actually volunteered to bring a sweet (because I'm crazy) to a party I attended on Wednesday. My chocolate chip cookie recipe is super easy, and makes a ton. Too much for the party, actually. So thanks to Pinterest, I did this:
I learned a long time ago that a batch of cookies doesn't last in my house. Both my husband and myself cannot resist these glorious treats, so I absolutely loved this ice cube tray idea. When I want a cookie (when I can have them again), all I have to do is pop one out of the tray and bake it. It satisfies my sweet tooth without tempting me with more than I should eat.
Perhaps the ultimate in make-ahead prep work?! You be the judge.
Tune in tomorrow for an awesome giveaway. No really, it's good stuff.
Question: What do you like to prep on Sundays for healthy eating in the week ahead?
