Time is money – continuing the series of food guides for people who don’t love cooking or who don’t desire spending hours slaving to meal prep.
While you could certainly spring for microwave meals, I still don’t know that I’d want to touch things like a Lean Cuisines in 2020, even though they’ve come a long way over the years.
As tempting as it might be to nuke your minimal-prep proteins, invest the extra few minutes to pop in the oven or air fryer.
Don’t forget to season copiously with spices (pink salt, onion powder, garlic powder – at minimum), and have dipping sauces or dressings on hand.
Primal Kitchen, Tessamaes, and Siete Foods are always stocked in our kitchen (:
Fruit is an easy staple to keep on hand. If you hate cutting fruit, stick to varieties that just need a rinse when you get home: strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, apples, etc.
When it comes to getting in your veggies (reminder: a great goal is 1-2 cups at every meal), we’re a biiiig fan of steamable bags. If they’re overly squishy, you cooked them too long. Doctor with a bit of olive/avocado oil + spices and you’re golden.
When it comes to everything else you might be putting in your cart, just really watch those ingredient lists. Ingredient list should be short (ideally less than 10-15 items) and mostly real, whole foods or spices.
Love these nutrition tips? You’d love my 150 page ebook, The Badass Guide to Fat Loss, Gaining, & Maintaining. I put everything into one massive book that I would want a 1:1 nutrition client to walk away with from a successful coaching journey.
