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 :P
Next week, it’s Garlic Butter Rice with Chicken :P and maybe Chicken Alfredo!
