    Food Prep


    What have you guys found to be the best way to prep/store larger quantities of food (ex: pounds of rice or chicken) for the week?? Getting really tired of spending my whole day cooking here lol.

    I spend a good 3 hours a day (broken up obviously) cooking food for about 6 meals... Really just looking for a few pointers or some experience as to how you guys prepare or store food week by week.

    Thanks!

    This and I do big batches of other food I enjoy that ill eat all week like low carb/sodium turkey chili, Shepards pie (with ground turkey and no potatos) , maybe ground turkey spaghetti if I'm bulking up with whole grain pasta or shredded zucchini in place of noodle for low carb. It only takes 10 minutes for breakfest to scramble a half dozen eggs and microwave some turkey bacon , Greek yogurt and juice. I like a fresh dinner every night and my in between meals are usually shakes, fruits, jerky and nuts.

    Some of that iis typically similar to what I have been doing as well. I really do enjoy fresh breakfast so that probably will not change much. However, I really am finding it hard to maintain my old prep ways with my new job. I like your idea with the chili and others of that sort. Ill definitely have to incorporate some actual good tasting (yet clean and lean) foods I can make in bulk.. Not just brown rice and grilled chicken lol

    Do you have a propane BBQ? you can do meat and veggies together and the fire gives everything a nice taste without the need for a bunch of seasonings and sauces. And you can cook in volume.

    Only have charcoal right now :/ normally I'm using the skillet or oven to cook because the charcoal takes so long

    I usually wake up and throw some chicken or steak on the grill let it cook and flip once while I’m getting ready and I have fresh food every day. BBQ sweet potatoes are fantastic btw.

    Chicken/veg kabobs are the best reheated. The veggies keep the chicken from drying out to much on the reheat and you get nothing but good stuff on a stick. .......You know you like good stuff on a stick! Don't you , you lil fruitcake?!
