Hello everyone! Hope you are having a great FRIDAY.
My eats lately have been pretty sad. With no time to cook all I have been eating is beans and rice, bread, oatmeal, smoothies, veggies, and soup. I can’t even remember the last great balanced meal I had. I am so used to going to the store every few days and loading up on produce I forget that I have nothing else to cook with it!
I used to eat a lot of processed vegan food (the food below is pretty healthy compared to what I used to eat). Having no time to cook or prepare meals has really been bugging me. Some nights, I will literally eat bread and a pasta salad for dinner because I am starved and I have no food! Also, due to the lack of meals I have been eating, I have been snacking a lot, usually on hummus and pretzels. I have a strong feeling that this snacking and poor meals is effecting my weight loss.
So, today I did something that I thought I’ve never do:
I went to the store and when straight to the “natural living” aka, frozen vegan packaged food section. I bought organic vegan burgers, burritos, bars, frozen meals, and canned soup.
This is how I used to shop.
Do I think this is a bad way of eating? Not really. It’s going to be a lot better than bean salad for dinner every night.
Am I going to eat these packaged meals everyday? Not even. I am going to keep these bad boys in the freezer for days when I really need them!
If I had time to make veggie burgers I really would. They are so fun and simple! But right now, I don’t even have the time in the day to go to the store.
And you know what? I got just about everything on sale! :)
All in all, I think I did pretty good. Hopefully these hearty meals will stop my snacking and lame excuses of dinners.
