My mindset is to eat for the next decade. Don’t eat for your current body; eat for your body in ten years.
We’re off the road and back home in Toronto. At home, it’s a lot easier to eat healthly, and I do a lot of meal prep. My favorite way to meal prep is using the crockpot. It’s easy and efficient, and it cooks while I’m at practice. Nothing like coming home from practice and having a nice healthy meal all ready to go!
Here’s a meal I made today:
What’s in it:
Yams, purple cabbage, onions, white mushrooms, 3 fried eggs, Redmond’s Sea Salt, Maui Onion seasoning, garlic, and grass-fed butter.
How to make it:
- Chop up some garlic and add to sauté pan with grass-fed butter. Put on low temperature
- Cut up 1 or 1/2 an onion and add it to sauté pan
- Cut up half a yam and add to sauté pan. Turn pan to medium temperature
- Chop up purple cabbage and add to sauté pan
- Once veggies are close to being done add mushrooms
- When veggies are almost done crack 3 fried eggs on top and close with the lid and cook until eggs are done. It will look like this in the sauté pan.
Today’s Meal Prep
Today I used the crockpot. Here are all the ingredients:
Sprouted brown rice, amaranth, lentil beans, purple cabbage, onions, sweet potatoes, white mushrooms, Brussel sprouts, Redmond’s sea salt, Maui onion seasoning, grass-fed butter, olive oil, and a little spoonful of honey. The protein source was grass-fed pork.
- place 1 cup sprouted rice in the crockpot
- place 1 cup amaranth in the crockpot
- place 1/2 cup lentil beans in the crockpot
- Add 3 cups water
- Cut up all your veggies and place them in the crockpot
- Add grass-fed pork (or any protein) on top of everything
- Add 1/2 cup olive oil and 1/4 cup grass-fed butter
- Add sea salt and Maui onion seasoning (or any seasonings you want) all over veggies and protein source
- Drizzle a spoonful of honey all over protein source and veggies
- Close lid and cook on any of the temperatures depending on your schedule
This meal will last me for a couple of days. I love to take this to games with me or to places where I know I will need food. I use this Natural Fiber Bento Box from Minimal to carry the food in.
Two things that are essential to eating healthy:
- Learning the skill to cook. The better you can cook the easier it will be to eat healthily. With this skill, you can make healthy food taste great.
- Preparation! If you fail to prepare you are preparing to fail. This quote really is true when it comes to eating healthy. Prepare and plan and eating healthy will be that much easier!
