Easy Meals

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!
