For me, Monday afternoons are for gathering my life together for the work days ahead of me. This means getting blog work ready so it makes it easier to post during the week and getting meals and snacks together, mainly breakfast and lunch.
So when 2:00 pm hit yesterday, I had the Vitamix out and ready to make up a batch of cottage cheese protein pancakes!
I’ve been obsessed with these pancakes lately and have been making enough for three breakfasts at the beginning of the week. I use Janetha’s recipe except I triple the ingredients and use 2 eggs and 2 egg whites (in total) instead of the all egg whites.
Put in a ziploc and they’re now a grab and go food
Next, I made up a couple lunches for the week. First up, coleslaw! But not just any coleslaw. I used these three components:
broccoli slaw, mama pea’s coleslaw dressing, and garbanzos…to create this!
So good! So filling, too Perfect for a lunch over the work day.
And finally, I made the Mexican version of my kidney bean salad, Mexican Black Bean Salad!
Always a winner in my book. It can be eaten alone, over salad, or over tortilla chips (my fave)
While I made up everything, I snacked a little myself, so as not to eat and defeat my preparing ahead efforts!
Hummus and dippers. I could eat this all day long.
Do you make any food on your weekend for your busy work week? If not, try it – it helps if you find yourself scrambling through the fridge last minute like me
Time to go! My early morning clients called off this morning, so I’ve already gotten in a glorious 4.5 sunrise run! It’s been for-ev-errr since I’ve done a sunrise run, and I forgot how good it feels to run when the world is just waking up And good news – my endurance got a workout before my hip did! No hip pain today either
Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday!!
Ahead: Test your CPR know-how!
