Day 60

I am back on course and feeling FANTASTIC!  I am no longer taking those crazy pain relievers and antibiotics…AND my cheek has returned to normal!  That really was a stressful week for me!

To get myself back on track, I decided I would prepare my meals ahead of time…or ahead-A-vance as we like to say around here.   It’s kind of like “ahead of time” and “in advance” somewhat smooshed together.  Try it, it will catch on!  :)  To start, I spread out six containers and began filling them with quinoa, asparagus, brussels sprouts, turkey and chicken.   It really wasn’t that much effort, and I am already enjoying the benefits of not having to come home and cook after work each day.

I thought it would be nice to have two options rather than the same thing each night, so that’s why I did three with turkey and three with chicken.  I am already thinking about what to make for next week…any suggestions?

    Awesome idea! I should do this for Scott and I! Do you just warm it up in the microwave? Does it still taste good…not mushy? I’m thinking it would not be good to do this with fish and better to cook it each night! I’ll have to post some pics of my dinners or your blog WHEN I make awesome ones. Then I can look back at it as a reference for Isgenix healthy meals. I made Amino Acid stir-fry with shrimp and it was good but I think I’ll try it with chicken next time.

      I’ve been doing this for the last two weeks and LOVE IT!! It is so nice to not immediately come home and start cooking…PLUS, no more pots and pans to clean each night! I put the food onto a plate and then cover it with a damp paper towel. It’s my little way of keeping the food from drying out and it seems to work! I definitely agree about avoiding the fish, but it works great with chicken/turkey and also the quinoa! The veggies aren’t crispy like when you first take them out of the oven, but for convenience I can overlook it. You could always put the veggies in a toaster oven to heat them too…
