I have learned that one of the key ingredients to my healthy eating plan is eating as clean and fresh as possible. This is why Sundays have become COOKING DAYS! If I will stay true to cook healthy meals to take for lunch and have available for dinner during the week, then I have a much great chance of losing weight that week and avoiding processed foods.
Also, if I cook, then I will eat foods that on Weight Watchers are ZERO…yes, the big 0…and I can eat more and not be hungry later. These are veggies I tossed in Olive Oil, garlic salt, pepper, and some onion and roasted in the oven for about 30 minutes. I have mixed in the large pan…broccoli, summer squash, zucchini, acorn squash and onion. Of course, I also roasted some baby carrots…so good and I bag them for a mid-morning snack…zero points!
On Sunday, I cook mass quantities of chicken seasoned in different ways. I portioned out these for my lunches and put about four in the freezer in cast next weekend is really busy. My favorite seasoning is Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb with light garlic salt and fat free Italian Dressing. Then I bake these skinless Chicken Breasts for about 25 minutes. The others are seasoned with barbecue spices.
Also, on Sundays, I freeze bananas for the week. My morning smoothie, after the gym, is a scoop of Juice Plus Complete French Vanilla Protein Powder, a cup of cold water, a banana and a few blueberries and three ice cubes.
As I said, Sundays have become critical cooking time for my new eating plan. I do occasionally grab a Smart Ones frozen meal, but I lose more weight when I eat fresh and clean.
Anyone else have meal prep suggestions or ideas? I have a few things in the slideshow below that I am enjoying on my eating plan. Of course, everything is checked through my WW app and I love that I can scan the barcodes to check out the points.
Please share your ideas………and
