I usually spend a little time on the weekend prepping and cooking food for the upcoming week. It saves me time and money since I am gone almost the whole day because of school and work. I pack these with me everyday, along with a peanut butter sandwich and a drink!
This weeks lunch/dinner are Chicken Pasta with Broccoli & Teriyaki Noodles with Chicken
I started out by boiling 6 pieces of chicken breast
Chicken Pasta was first. I put all the ingredients together into a large saucepan and brought it to a boil. After boiling, I lowered the heat and let it simmer for about 8 minutes….
Once the liquids have soaked, I turned off the heat and let it cool. Then I evenly distributed them into 3 containers. Like this….
After it has cooled, I closed the lids, and transferred them into the freezer.
Now, the Teriyaki Noodles with Chicken.
I sliced the remaining 3 pieces of chicken breast and threw them with the rest of the ingredients. The concept is the same, bring water to a boil, stir, then let it simmer till cooked. And this what I have….
Let it cool, put them in containers, then freeze.
They may not look very pleasing but they’re delicious. I could devour an entire pan in one sitting. LOL
I was able to put all this together in less than an hour. It’s very easy to do if you have planned things ahead of time.
As for me, I try to include a good serving of protein in all my meals to help my body repair and recover from the stress I put it through in the gym. That’s why I eat a lot of high protein foods such as chicken and fish.
Well, that was it for this week. I am gonna cook brown rice later, divide them into portions, then freeze them also… but there’s not really much cooking involved in doing that
Next week, it’s Garlic Butter Rice with Chicken and maybe Chicken Alfredo!
