Food Prep

In the past few weeks I have found that I have bought more plastic containers than I have room for. So I thought let me try snack bags and that was a hit! I can fit 4 oz. of cooked chicken in each one. This takes up so much less space in the refrigerator! I am officially obsessed with making large quantities of chicken, turkey burgers, quinoa, steel oats, potatoes, yams, and veggies. And packaging food into 1/2 cup and 4 oz. servings. At any time anyone in my house can open the refrigerator and warm up a meal. I never thought that preparing yams and potatoes ahead of time would taste the same as making that day. But everything tastes great and can last up to a week in the fridge. One day last week I ran out of my portions and cooked food and I thought I will just grab something out. But I am so conditioned to eating the foods on this nutrition plan that thinking about eating anything else was not appealing to me. As tired as I was, I sautéed a few veggies, cooked a chicken breast and had a meal. We would love for everyone that is participating in this Metagenics nutrition plan to share their thoughts, tips and recipes on this blog. Here we can support each other into a new healthy life style change. And I know we can all do it! I never said it was going to be easy, just that it is worth it.
