On the way home during my lunch hour or after my work out I think of the last few leftovers and what ever else I have in the fridge. The creativity that comes over me has a certain way of satisfying my hunger. Strangely even when the fridge is nearly bare I am able to throw together some pretty tasty meals, I love the way they turn out! These are my hunger games. Meal planning isn’t all about fixing 6 lunches and dinners during the weekend, not for me anyway. Its about utilizing the food I buy and preparing it with the time I have. I use some time on the weekends to make something that takes a lot of time or even just poach some chicken breast and clean some greens. In the mornings before work, I steam or prepare my vegetables or thaw something from the freezer, soup, meat sauce, meat or fish and then my hunger and creativity take over each day. For example throwing a potato In the oven for an hour in the morning and using leftovers to make a meal is fast, healthy and delicious….
Baked potatoes make awesome lunches & dinners and are a healthy carbohydrate and starch.
Scrub the potato, rub it with a little EVO, prick with a fork and throw it in the oven for about an hour at 350F.
I use half of a baked potato per meal.
Half a baked potato w/butter, salt & pepper, pulled pork w/ a tbsp or two of Annie’s BBQ sauce,
of sour cream and lunch is ready!
I tried out Annie’s Organic BBQ sauce and everyone seemed to like it.
This BBQ sauce is a tangy, spicy mustard flavor, less sweet tasting.
(I personally will try making my own sauce in the future, I prefer a slightly sweeter taste.)
I read a few reviews on the sauce, pros and cons, here are a couple;
The other half of the baked potato,
I mashed it on my plate with a dab of butter, salt and pepper,
I added some poached chicken breast, steamed broccoli and cauliflower,
grated aged cheddar and a drizzle of EVO.
A delicious, quick, nutritious, easy to fix, meal.
