vacation business trip is coming to an end I am proud to report that I didn’t eat out once! Yep, Monday to Friday and I was away from home.
Granted I will have a Starbucks before I board my plane, but I ate my breakfast in my room each day, packed my lunch and had dinner here too. Staybridge or Candlewood Suites are two great options for a room at a reasonable cost with a nice kitchen.
Sure, yea, it was quiet and well I’m not gonna say lonely. After being with the kids and puppy all last week while hubby was at a convention in Vegas, I cherish my time alone to refresh and recharge.
I got lots of yummy foods!
Here was my plan:
PreMade Hard Boiled Eggs, Bananas, Sunflower Butter and Rice Cakes. Good selection to mix it up!
PreGrilled Trader Joes Organic Chicken Breasts in a Salad with the Power Greens, Tomatoes, Avocado and EVOO. I prepared the chicken, greens and evoo in disposable ziplock containers to put in the work fridge and kept the tomatoes and avocado with me till I was ready to eat.
One Pound of Organic Beef sauteed with precut Asparagus, Mushrooms and Onions sauteed in EVOO and mixed with Organic Pasta Sauce served over a bed of Quinoa with a size of Brussels Sprouts!
I made all my dinner ingredients Monday night and stored the leftovers in the fridge, they kept me fed through dinner Thursday Night!
Easy Peasy with ONE pot and a micro!
First I heated up the pan with some EVOO.
Next I added my Organic Ground Beef and Cooked it till no more red!
Then into the pot went these goodies, well the Veggies went in first till they were pretty well cooked.
Then the Quinoa went in the micro to cook. I bought the Organic Quinoa from the TJ’s freezer section.
Time for the Pasta Sauce to Join Its Friends! Oh, Frozen Brussels Sprouts went in micro too for 4 minutes.
Viola! A healthy, clean dinner is served!
I would say it took me about 20 minutes at most of cooking time to have my dinner all week. When I got back to my room after work all I had to do was heat some quinoa and the brussels sprouts on the plate in the micro for about 3 minutes then add-on some of my pasta mixture for another 2.
At home I don’t like using the micro that much, but heck, I am sure most restaurants in town do and I know I ate a lot healthier than if I would have eaten out.
Looking at that picture though, I probably should start looking into portion control, lol! That’s a lot of food…
Anyways, I can’t wait to get home to see my family this afternoon.
How do you eat clean on the go?
