So I talk about planning your diet, but what does that look like for me?
Well generally on a Sunday we sit down and decide what we will be eating for dinner ever night the following week, that way we know whats coming and there is no opportunity to leave it till the last min and make bad (usually fast food) decisions.
I then cook up some food for my lunches, I dont really have a lot of variety at lunch because I’m generall at work. With it being my first meal of the day I like to get what little carbs I have during this meal so it invariably invlolves a Jacket potato (white or sweet) and either Tuna, Salmon, Chilli or bolognaise. The latter 2 I make up in batches in my slow cooker, by using the slow cooker other than a bit of food prep the cooking takes no time at all from my day, so I can enjoy it.
First of all I just fry up the mince to brown it off, whilst this is doing I choop up the chilli, pepper and onion.
Next it all gets thrown in the slow cooker, and I leave it for the day (what could be easier than that)#
Put it in containers and chuck them all in the freezer. Now when you get up in the morning all you need to do is grab one a tub, some potatoes and your good to go. No added preservatives, no hidden sugar or wheat/fillers, just good nutritious super filling food.
By doing it like this it does’t matter if I’m running late or cant decide what to have, as there are usually a variety of thing like this in the freezer for me to choose from. We always cook too much and freeze some, then you’ve got your own ‘ready meals’ but healthy ones.
