Health Preparing for the right monthly diet

January 4, 2018by egoforall36

Last week I shared a post talking about prepping all of your food for the week in one afternoon (I also have a whole chapter dedicated to make-ahead meals in my popular ebook) I offered lots of tips, pictures, and gave a step by step on what my food prep day looks like. I received lots of positive feedback on this post. However, within those comments were statements like this:

That looks amazing, I wish I could do that!
Wow, you are so organized, can you come to my house and do that for me?
I would love to food prep but don’t know where to start…
I tried to prep my food and got so overwhelmed I quit!

These comments, and others like them, made me think. I want you (my reader) to read the posts I write and think to yourself “I can do this”. I do not want you to feel overwhelmed or that it’s too out of reach. BELIEVE ME if you knew me in “real life” you would say “Dang, if Tammy can do it then I can definitely do this”. Not kidding! Some of my closest friends wonder how I even tie my own shoelaces some days. But one of my favorite quotes is “It never gets easier, you only get better”. This is so true. The more I work at something the “easier” it gets. Not because the task itself got easier but because I got better. I evolved. The person I am today with food prep is not the person I was 4 years ago just starting out.

If I were to give weekly food prep guidelines to the “just starting out” Tammy this is what they would be…

Don’t try to prep it all!

First and foremost, when starting out, don’t try and make ahead your entire weekly menu plan. This will completely overwhelm you – it can still overwhelm me. Start slow. The first week prep 1 or 2 recipes ahead of time and as you get comfortable with the process you can prep more.

Don’t try new recipes

When starting out with food prep it is best to stick with recipes you already know. This way you are confident in the outcome of the recipe and the only thing you need to focus on is preparing it ahead of time. This is the way I started with my food prep. I took recipes that I made often, like taco meat and red clam sauce, and prepared them ahead of time and then stored in the refrigerator and sometimes freezer. I was able to focus on what worked, what didn’t, and most importantly it allowed me to experience the benefits of having food ready. I know taco meat and clam sauce is easy to make but I still found having these meals made ahead of time to be extremely beneficial.

Choose which recipe(s), if made ahead of time, would make the biggest difference in your week

This is huge! If you are short on time or don’t have the energy to prepare a lot of food then prioritize your meals. Which recipe, if made ahead of time, is going to make your week easier? If you are rushing around every morning and always running out of time for a healthy breakfast then maybe focus on preparing breakfast sandwiches or steel cut oats. If dinnertime brings you the most stress then put together some meal starters or prep ingredients for a couple slow cooker recipes. If you are always running to the vending machine at 3:00pm then put together some veggie packs or bags of almonds. What is going to make it easier for you to eat healthier during the week?

When I was working out of the house having lunch prepared was huge. If I didn’t I was going to the vending machines or cafeteria for sure. You can view all my mason jar salad recipes here.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone! Jacquenetta Avictor Kall

    Well,Im game to get something going,with regard to Illusion. The reason I had such a nice day yesterday in the studio ,was that I have lot of lee-way with regard to Illusion. To me,this relates to story telling to my 8 year old daughter. If I want her to get involved,I have to get her to identify with the story. Get her to project imaginatively and that it is really about her. With my viewers of my pictures ,I am aware of the continual tension,between the expressive mark/the position within the rectangle,the relationship to the outside edge. That there is a balance between the sense of depth and the illusion created. When I drive up to the studio,I go up Hayes Lane,past Sir Walter Raleighs House,over the common,through the woods,just like the view of Mont St Victoire I have seen near Tour Tour in Provence. The difference is ,I shut the door and do not refer to the outside world again ,until I leave the farm. I just concentrate on the Colour/the mark making,the drawing and occasional expressive reference. Various cues are allowed,the moon,the sea/horizon line/the sun,but essentially I am aware of Greenbergs paradox between Illusion /depth and spaciality. Colour and surface are crucial. I am using heavy weight 18oz ,unprimed canvas ,basically staining with Golden Acrylic Paint,which comes from Nth America /via Germany. Colour is the crucial decision,position,weight etc. I relish the illusion,the reference and the magic quality of Expression. I am Painting Abstractly. . Jeannette Skipton Zed
