Why can't I have every Monday off work? It really feels great starting the week off on Tuesday. Just sayin'.
Anyway, I made the most of my day off and got the chores done that we didn't get to over the weekend. I also spent about 3 hours in the kitchen preparing food for the week. Now, most of you probably know that I don't really like bulk cooking... what I do instead is make one or two items to grab and go, and then I'll make extra dinner every night for the next day. I decided to bulk cook yesterday not only because I had the time to do it, but with my carb cycling it's hard to make "fun" meals. I'm eating basically the same thing for the next 12 days so it just made the most sense to get it all done at once and save time during the week.
Bulk cooking has it's pro's and con's-- pro's would be that everything is ready to go, so you really have no excuses for eating poorly. Con's are that it takes up a good portion of the day and it's a little easier to get tired of the food when you eat the same thing over and over. It's definitely a personal preference, but you may want to consider giving it a try!
Here's another quick tip for Tuesday about storing your bulk items. I apologize in advance for the "um's". I will fix it, promise!
