Time Saving Tricks to Please your Palate

Hope you all are having a fabulous Wednesday! Although it’s pretty windy, the weather is beautiful here in Harrisonburg…anyone considering moving their daily exercise requirements outdoors today?

As for this weeks challenge, I’m doing pretty well so far this afternoon:


Rice & Veggie “Bowl”

Since mornings are usually notoriously hectic, this lunch wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for a bit of prep-work on my part. Preparing ingredients may seem like a pain, but it’s a great habit if you want to stick to a nutritious diet.

For example, if you like carrots, red onion or mushrooms in your salads, why not chop up enough for 4 days at a time? Rice, oatmeal or quinoa can also be pretty time consuming yet they keep 3-4 days in the refrigerator.

Another easy way to always have a quick lunch is to make an extra serving of your dinner the night before! Some of you may turn your nose up at the idea of eating the same meal within two days, but it’s definitely a time saver. Even using just a part of your dinner (cooking extra chicken, chopping extra vegetables, cutting yourself a little more cheese) will pay off.


remember to cover them too!
