More Food Prep for February

Football season is over and I have noticed food prep just isn’t the same without it.  This week however brought a new twist…snow and food prep!

I tried a few new recipes this week.  I scaled back the carb treats though as I try to get my protein and carb balance right.  I want to get just enough to fuel my new workout program and lean out a little as spring is on it’s way. Sun

I brought back an oldie from last year…Quinoa bakes.  Quinoa is a good option for a carb.  If you are interested in quinoa, here is a blog by Tosca Reno: http://www.toscareno.com/2012/10/26/whats-the-deal-with-quinoa/

For breakfast meals, I made the usual canadian bacon and egg muffins but I also made some egg white, chicken breast, and veggie mini-omelet bakes.  Yes, there was still baked oatmeal on the menu but I halved it and made an apple pecan version and added the quinoa bakes.  The recipe can be found at http://www.fitfoodieshealthylife.com/. http://www.fitfoodieshealthylife.com/2011/06/blueberry-quinoa-mini-bakes/.

For meat, I made chicken burgers and sun-dried tomato and cheese-stuffed grass-fed burgers.  This week veggies included okra coated with flaxseed oil, cumin, and ceyenne pepper, parmesan asparagus, and salad.

The two newbies are from Katie at http://dashingdish.com/recipes/ (of course).  If Katie ever quits posting recipes, I am not sure what I will do.  Her food is wonderful!
