I think sometimes a big misconception people have with eating healthy means you have to prep everything in advance, and that it takes this huge amount of time.
While I do completely think meal prep is an amazing thing, I’d be lying if I said that I meal prep every single week. Between baseball and everything else, sometimes I just don’t have the time.
Some of my favorite healthy meals have been created when I’ve been low on time, and also when I felt like we had “nothing to eat” in the house. I would encourage you to step out of your food-box and experiment with different foods you have around the house. You may surprise yourself with not only your cooking ability, but some new easy faves.
Some people refer to those meals as “kitchen sink meals.” I can’t, because that term makes me gag. (Think about what your kitchen sink looks like after you wash dishes sometimes.. if you’re still someone who lives in the past century and washes your dishes in the sink like we do. Yeah. Gag-worthy).
Instead, we like to call them “something-outta-nothing” meals.
This recipe I created this morning for my breakfast was cooked out of random ingredients, without a plan, and it was delicious, nutritious, and will now be a staple in my weekly meal planning.
