I’m a few days late posting the challenge for this week… I’ve been MIA because I was planning and prepping a new lunch plan for our week.
And that’s what this challenge is about.
I went and made up a big batch of grilled chicken, cooked a whole bag of kidney beans, and steamed some veggies. And it’s all for our lunches. I wanted to eat A LOT less frozen meals and less fast food. I didn’t eat it a ton, but the frozen meals sure were convenient to take to work.
So your weekly challenge this week is to plan and prep healthy, easy lunches (or dinners!) to help improve your daily diet.
My new lunches are a combination of grilled chicken (this time I actually slowly simmered some frozen chicken I’d forgotten to thaw so it was SUPER tender), beans, salsa and plain greek yogurt. I also added some veggies (broccoli) because I think I need more veggies every day. One serving a day just isn’t enough! Mix it all together and it’s sort of like a burrito bowl. 🙂 I put everything together in individual pyrex bowls with lids so they are ready to grab each morning. I’m keeping the greek yogurt separate & add it in after reheating.
Here’s a peek of it all mixed together. It was QUITE good and nice & creamy with the greek yogurt plus the little bit of spice from the salsa. And it was plenty filling because of the beans & chicken. Yuuummm!
Luckily the hubby is happy to have fresher, home cooked meals for lunch too. Having others in your house excited about eating better is definitely half the battle!
