Food: Take 3

What do I think about every day?  Food!  I’m sure most people do especially if they are trying to make better changes for themselves.

I try to make it easier on myself to prepare everything in advance that way I don’t make bad choices but also not having to cook after the gym.  On the weekends I’ll hit up my local farm market for produce and then Walmart to get the staples like turkey meat, chicken, eggs, egg whites, quinoa, tomato sauce or whatever ingredients I need for the new recipes I’m trying. On Sundays I’ll prepare all my meals at once to get it all done for the week.

This weekend I found SkinnyTaste.com  and scoured the site for recipes to fit my diet.  There are so many recipes to choose from depending on your diet, the meal type, occasion and beverages!  I also found them on Pinterest because I like to eat with my eyes (not literally of course!)

Last night I made the Spinach Lasagna Rolls Ups which are super easy to make!

I also made the Turkey Meatballs and spaghetti squash for a nice dinner during the week.  The turkey meatballs were pretty easy as well.  Just had to mix all the ingredients, then browned them in a saute pan with olive oil and transferred to the crock pot with the sauce and sit on low for about 3.5 hours.

While my meatballs were cooking up I also cooked a few sweet potatoes by poking them with a fork, rolling them up in foil and putting them in a 400 degree oven for 1.5 hours.  They will actually caramelize inside to have a sweeter taste!
