These couple of days, we had been in a rush and time was a blur because of work and buying a new home. We were in a rush and I did not follow through on the plans for dinner. As we were driving home, the question hits me on what to prepare for dinner since we are both hungry after the workout. I DID NOT want to ask the dreaded question -” What are we having for dinner?”
On Saturday, we normally start the day working out and then go for weekly grocery shopping. Then we will proceed to eat lunch and prepare food for the week. We do not have anything else in the fridge, so when we got home, we really just want to eat immediately.
Today, we defaulted to a simple easy beef stir fry. It could be a chicken stir fry or just vegetable stir fry as well. Easy, simple and tasty ~ When I want to do something special, this is what we would do…..
One of the most challenging things for us, is that we are always hungry after we work out. I guess we should have a post work out recovery shake with us, but we rarely do. On a weekend, the hunger does unimaginable things to us -> It tempts us to go hunt for breakfast food! Therefore we generally enjoy going out to a power breakfast.
Some days we just want to walk through the door to the aroma of a tasty meal awaiting us. The daily work life is already busy and many times we have little energy to cook when we come home. Mark and I crossfit from 6:30pm – 7:30pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. During the drive home is when we are the most vulnerable. Whenever we have a slow cooker meal waiting for us, our resolve is strong and we will resist eating out unnecessarily (thus blowing our workout and also our budget).
In the great Northwest, we are really lucky to have many vietnamese restaurants. I love pho especially because of how it made me feel in a cold gloomy January day. As we transition to the paleo diet, I constantly crave a big bowl of noodles with hot broth in it. This is an effort born out of desperation.
Pancakes are really simple and good tasting breakfast, lunch and dinner food 🙂 but since we have gone paleo, we have not been able to find a good substitute. Almond meal pancakes just do not taste the same. In fact, I consider them gritty and difficult to eat.
