I LOVE food! Eating it, cooking it and looking at it, I love it all. I even find food prep therapeutic. But lately that has been lacking. There is a specific time and place for all of this in my life and lately my lunch time has been all about eating out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of a meal out, but at a certain point, like, NOW, I have to get it under control. I have to make food shopping and prepping a priority and do a little planning. Oh, it’s so easy to just head to work with no food prepped, but so much more satisfying knowing that I’ve prepped ahead of time, not to mention its cheaper, healthier and cleaner.
This past weekend my girlfriends and I decided to get back on track and doing what helps us feel healthier. My plan is to stop eating lunch out. That means I have to do some food prep. My plan is to make 1-2 main dishes (chicken, eggs or a vegetarian alternative) at the start of the week and then have fresh vegetables available for salads and roasting. Historically I’ll prep a vegetable every two days and use that to combine in a few different ways during the week which usually seems to work.
So- I’m committing to getting back on track to prepping food and NOT eating lunch out, unless of course it’s social. The photo above is cooked up quinoa, atop fresh arugula. I then sautéed some fennel with olive oil and ghee, blistered some heirloom cherry tomatoes and seasoned up the quonia with some lemon juice, cayenne, salt, pepper and smoked paprika. I’ve eaten a variation of this dish all week. For lunch, on greens, for breakfast with eggs on top, minus the arugula. I’ve also added in bacon for lunch one day, and another day topped with a little parmesan.
I’d love to hear what all you guys have been cooking.
