You don’t always need to have a gourmet food prepared on your table, every once in a while you and your family would need some dishes to try to achieve the healthy lifestyle you wish to have. The key to have a healthy lifestyle is to be smart in organizing the things you have to prepare for your meals. If you have a healthy, meal plan ready to eat when you are hungry then you are most likely will achieve the health you wish to have.
As a restaurant owner you will based all your supplies to the suppliers who deliver then right on the doorway of your restaurant, but having a meal prepared for your family, mostly you shop and cook on a Sunday, but you can do it whenever you have an hour to spend in the kitchen.
Here are ways on how you can make the preparation better.
THE GROCERY LIST
Before you begin to prepare your week’s worth of healthy meals, you have to make a list and buy the ingredients ready.
- 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breast
- 1-2 pounds green vegetable
- 1 pound brightly colored vegetables
- 6 medium potatoes
In addition you would need to have resalable containers or Ziploc because they stack nicely in your refrigerator.
Step 1: Wash and Steam Veggies
Start the cooking process by washing and steaming your green and colorful vegetables. You have to trim the ends of the green beans and throw them in a colander to rinse under the faucet. Then you have to peel and slice your carrots. Steam the vegetables separately on the stovetop. It should take just 10 minutes or so for the vegetables to cook. You will know when the veggies are cooked when you can pierce them with a fork – remember do not overcook them.
Step 2: Wash and Steam Potatoes
While your veggies are still steaming, take five minutes to scrub the potatoes, and then pierce each potato with a knife. You will steam the potatoes on the stovetop as well – but then these will take a little longer.
Roast and Slice Chicken
In preparing this, lay each chicken breast out on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. You also add flavor and crunch by sprinkling flavored bread crumbs on top.
Healthy Meal Prep Assembly and Nutrition
Once all your ingredients are cooked, it is time to assemble your healthy meals for the week. Stack the containers in the refrigerator or freezer; you can keep a few meals in the refrigerator and a few meals in the freezer for later in the week.
Reheat Prepped Meals Each Day
To reheat your healthy meal, you simply grab a container from the refrigerator and pop it into the over or microwave.
