Every time I’ve done one of these posts, I’ve done light, healthy food. That is my preferred style of eating, and it makes my body feel and look its’ best. However, there are some days where I workout quite heavily, it’s cold outside, I’m in a hurry…and I just need easy, heavy, comfort food. So I thought I would show you one healthy-ish way to get through one of those days!
This is one of those weeks where I had the luxury of knowing in advance that I would be busy and in a hurry, so you will notice a lot of my food was planned in advance and prepared. This first picture is my on-the-go breakfast! I have a whole bunch of hard boiled eggs in my fridge, and this morning I just pulled one out, peeled it, cut it in half, and lightly sprinkled with salt and red pepper flakes. I also did have an orange just to even out the fruit to protein intake, but I ate it before I took a picture.
Alright, I know…this isn’t the most artistic of shots. Really though…how do you make a burrito artistic? This is on of many healthy freezer burritos that I keep in my freezer at all times. If I want to take one for lunch, I just pull it out of the freezer, microwave it for 30 seconds, and stick it in a container (I also usually wrap it with plastic wrap, just to prevent any mess). Inside of it is some scrambled eggs, beans, salsa, and cheese. Perfect fast comfort food, without all the calories of McDonald’s!
And these were my snacks for the day! Strawberries, salt and vinegar rice chips, and some dark chocolate (because chocolate.).
Lastly, my dinner. This was also made at the beginning of the week. Chili lasts so well in the fridge, is so filling, and so yummy, that it’s often a go-to for busy weeks for me! I did want to try to make a slightly healthier version though, so I doubled the vegetables and beans, halved the meat, and used ground turkey instead of ground beef. It tastes and feels great!
