I am currently working on making large batches of one dinner to serve on the nights that TJ, hubby, is at school. I was just finding it too hard to get the energy and motivation to cook on the nights he didn’t come home in the evenings. I was making bad choices and just snacking through the evenings, which then led me to have trouble calorie counting, then I just gave up and ate whatever.
It’s time to start battling the evening meals and the evening snacking! So on Sunday I make a large meal – so far I have been focusing on soups. Then on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays I eat that meal.
I thought for sure I would hate it by Thursday, but it has been great. With the soups I can add different toppings or if its a chunky soup I have even served it on top of spaghetti squash.
You can either serve this soup as a chunky broth based soup or pull out your hand blender and blend it to a smooth creamy soup. The seasoning in this also has a nice bite to it, but feel free and alter the cayenne pepper to change the heat. I actually topped the bowl pictured above with some greek yogurt (you can use sour cream if you want to), it was so good!
Healthy Mom = Healthy Family - That is my life motto and I hope to encourage it to be yours too. January 2011 I made the decision to lose weight and lost 80+ pounds. I saw my boys start getting active with me and I realized I wasn't only changing my life but also my boys.
