Meal prep

Anyone else take this approach to lunch or meals in general? I have found over the years that if I have food readily available I eat healthier and don't stop for fast food or convenient foods. Breakfast is a protein shake and 2 hard boiled eggs, what is in the pictures is lunches and if I forget to eat might be supper. If not, I have food prepped for supper as well.

Good idea, Shawn. For years I've had a bowl of cereal for breakfast thinking the whole grain cereal was fine. Then I started listening to doctors on YouTube and they say all cereals are trash, even the so called healthy ones. About a month ago I started drinking a protein drink or smoothie for breakfast and sometimes a couple eggs and I was surprised that I wasn't starving by 10 am. It sticks with me till noon without a problem.

This my choice for shakes low in sugar and now funny after taste. The Carmel one is probably my favorite. Davy you should try french toast in the morning. That is my go-to if I want to stay full the longest.

We've been off and on over the years for meal prep. Wife made a bunch of turkey sausage muffins, and kept me stocked up as I ran low for a couple months. Then over time back to grabbing a cliff bar for breakfast or making a couple eggs.

What I've been doing for awhile now is having dinner from the night before for lunch and am on my own for breakfast. My wife cooks almost every night and it's mostly healthy stuff so it works out. Father-in-law is Israeli and his mother is Moroccan, we've gotten some killer recipes from them over the years.

Israel has a culture that focus more on sides and salads (salatim) and the main course almost gets dwarfed. https://jamiegeller.com/recipes/sala...-start-making/

The layout on that website is kinda annoying but will give an idea of what types of things are served as sides and how many there are. A lot of them age well in the fridge so we make some in bulk and have it as sides for a couple dinners. Shredded dill cabbage salad, beet salad, tomato-cucumber salad are pretty much in the fridge at all times.

Thanks for chimming in!0 No disrespect but in that part of the world unless you are whealthy, meat is a rarity. Can you give a specific recipe for a meal layout that you guys enjoy? I like to switch things up every now and again. Try hard boiled eggs much quicker in the morning when you are trying to get out the door

So what's wrong with a coffee and a twinkie on the go?

Mmmmm.....Twinkies.

I actually prefer Raspberry Zingers, but haven't had one in a very long time.

my metabolism isn't what it once was, if I did that I would be shaped like a Twinkie. Or I would have to run another 5 miles a day to keep it off

Whoa! Raspberry Zingers covered with coconut! I can still remember what they smelled like. Of course, it's been decades since I've had one. What were those things made of? Whipped axle grease and sugar?

Hey, I just noticed the Carpet Cushion & Supplies squeeze bottle on the counter! I used to get supplies from them. I didn't realize that they had a chain of stores.

Shawn, do you run?

I put that up there just to see if someone would catch it. I needed a squeeze bottle for olive oil and I had a few of them in the trailer that I hadn't used.


I do run, a lot! A normal week is 80-100 miles a week , long week might be around 120 miles

80 - 120 miles is amazing! That's great. I used to do 120 miles a week on the bike. Then slowly migrated to running. I think partially because it's faster to just put your shoes on and go. But compared to you, I'm happy with a scant 15 miles a week.

By the way....what did you used to have in that Carpet Cushions & Supplies bottle? Chalk?

I bike also. Though I don't ride outside much anymore, I have a kinetic rock and roll trainer set up next to my dreadmill in front of the TV, and I don't have to worry about getting hit by some clown texting and driving. I don't run very much on the road either, I have some trails about 10 minutes from my house . I got a few routes laid out that I can get 8-15 miles per loop, or go and try to get lost in the woods for a couple of hours and then hit my truck for a PB&J and some snacks and out for another loop.

Originally the bottle was for glue down carpet seam sealer or latex for residential burbers. I always buy a couple because they might get smashed in the trailer or the latex will go bad in the winter ( I always for get to bring the little bottles inside) It was one of the extra ones so it never had anything in it.


Davy make sure you stretch, don't want to pull a hammie (it is a terrible discomforting injury)
