Well that little saying is 100% true. I'm not too proud to admit that is the best advice I have seen along this journey. I think it is SO important to food prep and prepare for the week so that you can make good choices. I am a huge advocate of food prepping for the week so that when I get home from the gym or work, I already have food prepared and ready for me. This helps me out so much because honestly...by the time I get home and showered it's already 8pm and who the hell wants to cook at 8pm? NOT I.
I usually prep the same old crap every week and I have just been tired of everything. My mom showed me this recipe last weekend and I thought it looked SO good. I had to try it. Now..it's not clean and it's not 100% healthy...but we can work with this. I put my own little touch on it and made it my own so this recipe isn't really an official recipe, but it worked.
Here you go:
(1) 1lb bag of frozen tortellini
(1) Can of Italian style diced tomatoes
(1) Can of fat free low sodium chicken stock
(1) Bag of fresh spinach
(1) Package of 1/3 less fat cream cheese broken up in sections
Sliced portabello mushrooms
Sun dried tomatoes
Throw it all in a crock pot, stir it up and let it cook on low for a few hours.
|This does not look pretty, but it was GOOD|
I don't have a picture of the final product but maybe I can take one tonight and post it. Ugh so good. If anyone tries it, let me know. Or if you want the "real" recipe, also let me know and I can get it for you.
Ummmm P.S. - Saturday I have a 5k. I haven't been to the gym in over a week and I haven't ran since my last 5k. Can we all assume that this weekend's race will be a trainwreck? It will still be fun...but damn it is going to be ugly.
