Fit After 30: Luncheon

I really don’t like to cook.  Which is why I’ve always been a big consumer of convenience foods and fast food.  Those habit have lead to weight gain. To change that I know I have to cook at home.

So this is what I eat for lunch.  Green beans sauteed in olive oil and then I added some shrimp.  It was quick, easy, and tasty! Score!

Slow Cookin’

I made a goal to cook more.  I have so many reasons why I don’t cook.  Being too tried being the main one.  I made a point to try some new paleo slow cooker recipes.  I figured if I spent 10 minutes prepping dinner the night before, I could come home to an already prepared meal.  (Just remember to take the Crockpot out of the refrigerator and turn it on in the morning! Something I totally did this week.)

I’ve tried four new recipes this week.  Two of which weren’t very successful in the fact that I really didn’t like the taste of the veggies in them.  Ended up just picking the meat out of the pot and adding it to salads and steamed veggies instead. But I am still proud of myself for trying something new.

However there were two recipes that I loved.  A beef stew that I made up with things I had on hand and I forgot to take pics of and this:

I did make some changes; I halved the recipe and used seasonings I had on hand.  AndI used a jar of organic marinara sauce from Martins’.
