It’s been a busy week for me. I’ve been catching up after all the sxsw madness!! I’ve been having the Great Cleanser Green Juice each morning and I feel so much better for it! It really is a miracle worker when it comes to getting back on track after an unhealthy weekend. I’ve also been taking a probiotic daily (which I always do but I’ve been doubling up on this week). Other staples after a wild weekend include: hot water with lemon and ginger (I make a big pot and sip on this all day), and nightly skin brushing followed by a detox bath. I find that the skin brushing and detox bath really help recharge my batteries. It’s like a nightly spa session…what’s not to love about that?!
I’ve been super busy this week playing catch up and so haven’t had a lot of time to cook. When I get busy, I tend to stick to “no cook” meals, or “put together” meals as I usually call them because you just put stuff together to make the dish, no cooking or prep necessary.
Just to give you an idea, this week I went to the grocery store on Monday. That is ESSENTIAL. The cardinal rule: If you have healthy food, you will eat healthy food. If you don’t have any healthy food on hand, 9 times out of 10, you will eat whatever is available which is typically prepackaged and unhealthy!!
My grocery store run looked like this:
- Ezekiel bread
- shredded carrots
- assorted veggies
- rotisserie chicken
If you get these items everytime you go to the grocery store, you always have ingredients to make, frittatas, egg sandwiches, veggie sandwiches, scrambled eggs with veggies, eggs + toast, chicken and veggies, avocado toast, and kale salads.
Always get these basics and staples when you go to the grocery store, that way you can always put something together when you’re in a pinch! It goes back to The Boy Scouts Honor: Always Be Prepared.
This meal takes 5 minutes to make and virtually no prep, other than toasting the bread which you don’t even have to do! It’s so important to always have the ingredients to make meals like this. If you look in your fridge and you only have are raw ingredients that must be cooked, roasted, marinated, or prepared ahead of time, chances are you’re going to head to the drive through instead!
