I did my food prep yesterday, all the while watching the first season of breaking bad and taking a nap. It rained all day yesterday as a result I never left my house. It felt great not having anything to do
I had already made my menu and as a result only had a few things to prep.
Here is what my menu looks like. I simplified it by dividing it into breakfast foods; lunch and dinner are stacked together and finally snacks. This way I can alternate them through out the week without getting bored of anything particular. Since its raining a lot and a bit chilly here, I will be making a weekly soup that I can have for either lunch or dinner depending on what mood I am in.
Avocado and salsa
Lowcarb protein pancakes
Egg taco with TVP filling
Lunch and Dinner
Avocado and salsa
Salad (Lettuce, cucumber, carrots)
Stir-fry Veggies (broccoli, sugar snap peas, French beans, carrots and onion)
Split pea soup
Chopped fruit and veggies
Here is what a sample day will look like.

This is pretty much the template I will be using for the entire week. Next week I will change it up. I want to be more adventurous and think up new things tat I can change into low carb. I want to make this sustainable by only keeping the foods in my menu at my house.
The only food prep I had to do was make the pancakes, the salsa and the soup. I chopped up the veggies and potion controlled them.
