What I do like to have in my freezer are single serve things. Things that I can grab on my way out the door when I don’t have time to put together a lunch for myself. Because a day without lunch is just not a good day.
A simple formula – protein, milk, and fruit – makes a balanced breakfast that will fuel even the busiest morning.
A salad starter gets rid of so many excuses. There are so many health benefits to eating raw foods, I make an effort to eat a raw salad everyday. Sure, prepping in advance may diminish some of those vitamins and enzymes — but I figure eating some greens that were washed and cut 3 days ago is lightyears ahead of not eating one at all. Those veggies don’t do me any good in the garbage can – which where they would eventually end up if I did not prep them in advance.
When someone says bake something I just naturally go for muffins. And given that it’s that time of year where I find myself overstocked with pumpkin puree, these are pumpkin muffins. Vegan. Whole-grain. And I added a little extra brown sugar streusel on top for fun.
