Yesterday I spent several hours cooking and doing food prep for the week. I wrote out a list of things I might want to eat this week and I set about making them all ahead of time so I would be prepared for the week with healthy things on hand to eat. I’ve been doing this on a small scale every Sunday and wanted to ramp up my efforts a bit to make sure this week is a good week.
The biggest win of the whole day yesterday? I did this all while a yummy strawberry cream cheese cake was sitting nearby. Instead of pouncing on the cake like part of me wanted to, I controlled my compulsive eating side and focused on making healthy foods to fuel my body. I let my brother enjoy the cake instead.
I was extremely proud of ignoring the cake and preparing healthy foods for the week.
I cooked and prepared:
Spicy Kale Chips
I like the food prep Sunday thing I have going on. It helped me get my breakfast and lunch and snacks for today ready in less than 5 minutes. Plus I can do the same thing several more days! With only a few tweaks I can use the basic foods I made in yummy and different healthy meals. Food prep for the week is an awesome idea!
Do you do a weekly food prep day? What do you normally prepare?
