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.
Green beans and shrimp
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!
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’.
