Fit Foodie: PCS Meal Prep

Here goes nothing… the cabinets are officially emptied which created this… Southwestern scrambled eggs with brown sugar oatmeal Chicken lo mein Turkey burgers with roasted asparagus And that’s it. All else from here on out will be from a meal prep place or ready made from the grocery store. Thankfully we were able to do […]

Fit Foodie: Cooking down the cabinets

Here we are…in the beginning stages of our PCS, struggling to not emotionally eat all of our feelings BUT also to cook down what’s in our cabinets.  Some things I’m finding…well I’m not quite sure when those ingredients found their way in there but that’s a whole other menu planning problem.  Canned artichoke hearts…  Tapioca flour…  […]

Fit Foodie: Ruined by eggs

Grocery Store Staples

Produce Apples Bananas Bell Peppers Onions Asparagus Mixed Greens Chives Basil Mixed greens Cucumbers Grape […]
