Now, it is true that cooking and food preperation can be time consuming but there are a few ways to save yourself a few hours a week!
This is what I do- if I am busy I will set aside 1-2 hours 1-2 times a week to cook food in bulk. I'll pick up 5lbs of chicken, some ground beef or steak, some rice or pasta, and some steamable veggies.
I cook all my meat on a George Forman grill and put the rice or pasta on the stove. I love my George Forman grill. It works great. Hey George, give me a call!!!
Once it's all done I have food for lunch and dinner for the next 2-4 days. Now I know that not everyone is going to want to eat the exact same thing day in and day out. So this is what you do. Make a menu of quick meals you can make and make them day by day. By this I mean for lunch if you want a sandwich you can use the premade chicken and put it on some whole wheat bread, throw some veggies in the microwave and you have a healthy 5 minute meal. ( this also works with tortillas).
Now for dinner you can have the chicken or steak with the rice or pasta but add some sauce to the pasta or some fat free cheese. The main idea behind this is to use the premade steak, chicken, ground beef, pasta, rice, and veggies as a base then add things to it in order to not get bored or sick of what you are eating.
Don’t forget to wash it all down with a diet beverage of your choosing.
See, it's easier than you think!
