When I have busy days ahead, recipes like this are the perfect solution for not having to spend too much time prepping meals, but still being able to eat delicious nutritious foods.
I often prepare 20 oz. chicken in the oven and I put that in the fridge. Whenever I need to take food with me on the road, I get some of this chicken and add the following:
Then I throw all kinds of vegetables that I have left over into a large frying pan. I add 2-3 tablespoons of ketchup with 2-3 tablespoons of mayonnaise. Quantities depend on the amount of vegetables I prepare.
You can also put some cheese in it (instead of sauce), or come up with a tasty other low-carb sauce to add to it.
Add some spices to taste. For me it usually becomes fresh parsley and dried garlic powder, paprika powder and some pepper, but feel free to do whatever you want, as long as the herbs are free of sugar and salt.
In the mornings I often eat these vegetables with eggs. Sometimes instead of chicken, I add some steak or fish. You can vary endlessly.
Ingredients (per 1 portion):
• 5 oz. chicken, cooked/grilled
• Left-over vegetables
• 1/3 onion, finely chopped
• Fresh and dried herbs to choice
• Greens to choice (optional)
1. Take a container that you can close well. Add 4 or 5 oz. chicken or other meat / fish of your choice.
2. Add the vegetables, sauce with chopped onion and herbs.
3. Delicious with some fresh lettuce of your choice.
4. Fast, simple, tasty!
PS if this meal does not provide enough satiety, simply eat more. That is not strange and completely normal. Some days / moments we need larger meals than other days / moments.
Sometimes I eat smaller “main meals”, but I eat snacks/smoothies with a lot of calories, such as one of the different recipes you can find on my website. This is also a way for me to keep my way of eating fun and interesting, because I do not always feel like eating lots of vegetables and/or meat.
