1. Plan every night’s dinner on Sunday:
On Sunday morning I sit down with my Spark and I plan out the entire week’s dinners. I go through recipes in Well Fed, EveryDay Paleo, Barefoot Contessa(many of these can be modified to eliminate the dairy, etc) and pick a recipe for each night. Usually, I pick super easy ones, like protein style burgers on Monday, whole baked chicken on Tuesday, grilled salmon or tilapia on Wednesday – you get the idea.
So simple and so easy. Leftover grilled salmon over “Power to Greens” from Trader Joe’s, brussel sprouts, and sweet potato fries in a container – ridiculous!
Sundays and the kitchen just go together. Slice and dice. Bake and bag. Toss and tupperware. You get the idea… make your yummy food, portion it, and have it ready to grab and go. I hard boil 12 eggs and make an egg frittata bake (or two) every Sunday. I can’t tell you how many times just knowing I have an egg ready in the fridge has saved me. It’s a great mid-morning or afternoon snack alongside veggies, or they’re great to make egg salad for lunch.
4. Eat breakfast:
I don’t know about you, but my mornings are crazy so my breakfast needs to be super simple and quick. Typically, I rotate through Meal Replacement Shakes, 2 hard boiled eggs with avocado and tomato, or egg frittata. Find your go to’s and GO TO THEM.
