Plan Your Diet

Hi peep,

saye nak share sumthin yang saye rasa sangat membantu korang kalau nak diet.(org2 yang malas nak masak) hihi

Eating healthy all week long doesn’t have to be a chore. The key is preparation, especially at the beginning of the week.
Here are some easy ways to prep healthy meals for the week ahead:

Prepare Proteins:

Buy chicken breasts in bulk (especially when they are on sale) and cook 3 – 4 chicken breasts at a time. Eat one right away for a meal, then chop the rest up and place in the refrigerator. You can throw the chilled chicken on top of salads, use in a wrap, or heat up with back beans for a quick chicken fajita dinner.
Hard boil a dozen eggs at a time. You can use them for egg salad, eat them individually for snacks, or chop them up for a salad topping.

Cook 1/4 bacon and refrigerate for a quick addition to breakfast burritos, salads, or wraps.

Chop Produce:

Fresh produce always takes a little prep time. Do it in bulk right when you get home from the grocery store, and you’ll spare yourself the effort later in the week. Pump up the jams or your favorite podcast to keep yourself entertained, and go to town. Start by washing all produce, then trim any ends such as carrot tops, lettuce head bottoms, and gnarly sweet potato ends.
Then, chop and portion produce. For example, cut celery into snack-sized stalks and prepare a reusable container with celery, carrots, and chopped peppers for a grab and go veggie snack. If you are going to make a veggie stir fry, chop all veggies that you want to include and place in a large container then refrigerate.

Pick One Day to Cook:

Choose one afternoon or evening to cook a large meal that will feed the family for a few days. For example, is you have a family of 4, cook a large beef stir fry with 8 portions. You’ll have dinner and lunch the next day. Also, take this time to cook a large batch of a food staple, like quinoa and black beans. You can eat quinoa and black beans as a chilled salad with chopped veggies, stuffed into a burrito, or in a bowl with mashed sweet potatoes and salsa. You can even add your pre-cooked chicken to the bowl too!

Cheers,
RF
