Meal prep Sunday

As a busy young professional it’s kind of hard to cook balanced meals at appropriate times and work long hours perfecting your craft. So this week I decided to take a stab at meal prepping. I’ve always been interested but have never tried. To start, I prepped only lunch and dinner. I baked 5 eggs in muffin tins, baked 5 slices of Canadian bacon and the assembled a cheese,egg and canadian bacon sandwich on an English muffin.  I wrapped each sandwich individually in plastic wrap and placed them in the fridge.  For lunch, I made chicken teriyaki, roasted vegetables, and rice.

Healthy low carb banana pancakes 

This morning I was craving pancakes for breakfast. However, I didn’t think that the traditional buttermilk pancakes would have been conducive to my healthy eating diet. So I needed an alternative and decided to try those three ingredient pancakes I’ve been seeing on pintrest. The end result was DELICIOUS.

Ingredients:

Two Bananas

Two eggs

2 tsp of cinnamon

2 tsp of baking powder.

 

Instructions: place the two banana in a bowl and use a masher or a large spoon to mash the bananas. Then mix all the ingredients together in a bowel. Hit up a skillet with your choice of olive oil, coconut oil, or butter. Pour in the pancake mixture to your desired portion size.  Cook for about 5-8 minutes on one side and then flip over using a spatula to cook the other side. Remove from the skillet and enjoy!

Pan seared cod in homemade white wine tomato basil sauce with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli

Ingredients:

For the fish:

  1. Fresh cod
  2. Cherry Tomatos
  3. Fresh Basil Leaves
  4. Shallots
  5. Garlic
  6. White win ( I used Pinot Griot)
  7. Sugar
  8. Lemon Juice
  9. Fresh lemon lemon zest

Mashed Potatoes:

  1. Idaho potatoes
  2. Carnation milk
  3. garlic powder
  4. salt
  5. fresh ground pepper

Directions:

Salute the shallots in garlic in a pin over light to medium heat. Cook until the shallots are a translucent color.  Slice cherry tomatos in halves then add in mixture of shallots and garlic. Pour in the lemon juice and lemon zest. Now mix in the fresh basil leaves. Lastly, stir in the white win. Add in sugar to dilute the lemony basil taste and give the sauce a sweeter flavor.  Remove sauce from pan and set aside.  Sear the cod for 5 minutes on each side then put in the oven for an additional 5 minutes. Pour the sauce mixture all over the cod and enjoy!

Boil potatoes until they are tender. Drain the water and leave the potatoes in the pot. Add in the butter and the carnation milk and begin mashing the potatoes. I usually leave the skin on. Once the potatoes are based season with salt, garlic powder, and pepper.

Friday nights and me time.

Today I realized I haven’t spent much quality time with myself lately, so I decided to change that. Tonight my only plans were dinner, wine, and some television. Being the seafood fanatics that I am, my menu consisted of Spaghetti Di Mare. For my seafood I only used mussels, shrimp, and fish. I used a white wine and tomato sauce. Added in a colorful array of peppers, some garlic, and onions. For dessert I had a delicious French pastry filled with chocolate. Lastly, a glass of my favorite wine, Pinot Griot.
