For the past couple weeks I found myself making the same dishes over and over again. Jeremy and I are hooked on roasted vegetables. I was making it a couple times a week. It’s hard work. When I’m really tired, it’s the last thing I want to do. It takes over an hour and a half to cook and prepare.
We like making large salads with our dinners. I like to add hard boiled eggs and cooked shrimp as a protein. He likes to add baked chicken. Baking chicken and boiling eggs adds an extra 30 minutes onto our dinner time.
Yesterday, I decided to make things easier for me this week. I bought all the ingredients for baked chicken and roasted vegetables. I made enough to last for dinner through out the week.
This is just a start to my new habit of preparing foods. I plan on cooking most of the meals on Sunday to save time. I just got a new crock pot for Christmas, so I’m sure that will come in handy when preparing meals.
I was watching a documentary the other day on eating whole foods. My new years resolution is all about eating whole and cutting out artificial ingredients. I know there will be times at restaurants or road trips where I’ll have eat what’s available. If I eat whole 90% of the time, I’ll be doing much better than I used to. This documentary said using olive oil was pointless. He roasted his vegetables with low sodium vegetable broth. I thought that was a good idea. It cut out half the calories in my roasted vegetables. I didn’t have to season them either, the vegetable broth gave them a great flavor. Eliminating the seasoning cut out the extra salt too. You can still season them if you wish.
