Meal Prep Tips

 

 

IMG_7712 IMG_5577 IMG_8090

I get asked a lot what I do to cut down on my prep time in the kitchen. Quite honestly, I am not one of those people that takes a few hours every Sunday to prep my meals for the week. To me, that is boring. My mind is so trained to be a Chef, that I literally make up my meals in my head about an hour or 2 before I make them. Haha. That being said, there are a few things that I do that end up saving me some time and money in the long run. I LOVE to add frozen berries and bananas to my protein shakes. It gives them a milkshake like texture, especially frozoen bananas. I also like to have some individual portion of shredded chicken on hand that I can defrost quickly (under cold running water in a baggie) and then season to fit whatever dish I am making. So, here is what I do for both of these cases…

CHICKEN: Every couple of weeks, I go and buy a ton of chicken breasts, when they are on sale at the store. Make sure you also buy a decent amount of low sodium chicken broth. Put the chicken breasts in a sauce pan, and cover with stock, add 5 to 6 whole garlic cloves, and four bay leaves, and let simmer on medium low for 2 to 3 hours. May also cook in crockpot on low for roughly 4 hours, depending on the amount of chicken. When cool, shred the meat up, remove the bay leaves and garlic cloves, and portion out in the individual servings in baggies (squeeze out any excess air), put those baggies into a freezer bag, and freeze, so you have access to individual portions when needed. Defrost in either the fridge overnight, or under cold running water, still in the baggie. The great part about this is when you serve, or reheat, you can add your desired seasonings and spices.

FRUIT: I love frozen bananas and berries in my protein shakes. I buy bananas and cut them into slices, put them in a freezer bag, make sure that all the banana slices are spread out evenly, put that bag on top of any solid surface, and stick in freezer, this way they will freeze individually, and you can choose as many as you like. With the berries, you can freeze blueberries, raspberries, blackberries without doing anything before, but I always cut the tops of my strawberries. Again, arrange all fruit so that it is in a single, even layer, and put the freezer bag on a hard surface, I use a cutting board, and freeze until solid. Then you can remove the hard surface and let all the items fall together in the bag.

I hope you have found this helpful!

Easy Ways to Fit in Some Exercise

If you are anything like me, it isn’t always easy to fit in a 30-45 minute workout. Most days, I have a LOT going on, and it is hard for me to find the time, so I have to be creative. Here are some ideas to fit in some sneaky exercise

  1. While washing dishes, do 100 calf raises. I do this a lot.
  2. While going through your skincare routine, do plies and squat variations between the steps. Here is a n example. Wash your face and dry. Do 20 squats. Apply toner to face, and while drying do 15 sumo squats. Apply eye or wrinkle cream. Do 15 push ups against the sink. While brushing your teeth for 2 minutes, do 30 plié squats or side bends. It is so easy to do it this way, and you really are not taking up too much additional time.
  3. Park further away. Yes, we have all heard this a million times, but it’s effective.
  4. Punch the air while walking around your house, or do some walking lunges.
  5. Take multiple trips while putting away things.
  6. While watching TV, do some tricep dips off of your couch.

These are just a few ideas, and I hope that you have found them helpful! Remember, you don’t need to go to the gym to get in some effective exercise! Just be creative.

Spicy Buffalo Chicken Bites

IMG_7361

These are so good, and so super easy. We devour these, and they are the perfect last minute meal. Here is the recipe. Another great thing, is that this recipe makes it quite easy to customize. Add more blue cheese, leave out the ranch, add some cayenne. Use less yogurt. It’s totally up to you!

-Serves 2-

2 chicken breasts, shredded (time saver: use a store bought rotisserie chicken)

1/4 c. plain yogurt (kind of gives the sour cream effect!)

2 T. blue cheese crumbles

1 T. ranch dressing

1/4 c. Frank’s Red Hot (adjust to your desired spice level and consistency)

Combine all ingredients above in a small sauce pan and let simmer 10 minutes.

1 jalapeno, thinly sliced

1 Package King’s Hawaiian Bread rolls (I love the Honey Wheat)

Cut the rolls in half. Add chicken mixture and top with jalapeños. serve and ENJOY!

You may also add some shredded cheese to the sandwich if desired.
