I know good things and I get a kick out of sharing them with others. Food is no exception.
The grocery store is overcrowded with overwhelming choices. If you are like me, you enter when you are hungry and pressed for time. My girlfriends fall into one of two categories when it comes to grocery shopping: #1. Love strolling grocery aisles and turning over labels, but that is a time luxury reserved for…almost never. #2. The grocery is a horrible place and anytime spent there is a time waster.
Which type of grocery shopper are you?
Either way, both types of friends grab basically the same food week after week. You buy what is familiar, you buy foods that you know fit into recipes you commonly make, and you buy what you know your family will like. I get it. The effort to be creative to think of protein, fat, and fiber foods combined with then FINDING those foods. Good grief.
Here’s the good news! I found some delicious options! Jot these down, print this email, or copy the “little recipes” into the notes section of your phone so you have them the next time you are at the store. Getting the ingredients in the house is a huge accomplishment!
Simple Breakfast Bowl
I love this because it is protein, fat, and fiber. I also love it because I can make it in 2 minutes and no cooking or dishes are required. I have been known to use this in a pinch as an afternoon snack! This is a kid-approved breakfast and snack!
I find these in the refrigerated deli section. They offer protein with no net carb. I love these as an alternative to a salad wrap or tortilla wrap. They are delicious topped with a little cream cheese and turkey and rolled up. They are also delicious topped with scrambled eggs.
A New Kind of Wrap
This is such an easy (and quick) Lunch or Bridge Snack. The trick is having the goods in the house.
I have been making scrambled eggs with leftover vegetables from dinner, and top with a pinch of Parmesan cheese.
Bridge Snack between 4:00-6:00 gives me the willpower to skip all after-dinner snacks! Try it!
4 GG crackers topped with Greek Whipped Cream Cheese, Sliced Turkey, and Everything But the Bagel Seasoning. They are DRY (you need to acquire a taste for these) but a great base for fat and protein. You will burn more calories eating these than if you skipped them.
Bridge snack is so important for hunger and appetite control as I enter into the evening. This ruins my dinner, stretches my stomach (signaling my brain that I am full) and gives me the control I need to choose a protein and vegetable dinner, in the right portions.
Easy BBQ Chicken and Broccoli Rice
This is a fast and DELICIOUS dinner that is family approved!
I would suggest that you double the recipe because the leftovers are incredible!
You will thank me for this one!
What is the hardest part of all these delicious meals that I am loving? Remembering this list of ingredients and buying them! It’s a trip to “easy town eating” once you get these things in your house!
What are you loving right now?
