- Ingredients for quick meals: Bacon (for meals but also to get a large quantity of grease)
- Hamburger ( patties, crumbled, meatballs etc.)
- Hard boiled eggs( for salads and quick on the go snacks)
- Muffins, biscuits and pancakes(all low carb)
- Veggies( for snacks or dishes I am going to make)
- Yogurt (from fresh raw milk)
- Cereal( I have an amazing recipe)
- Snack bags ( nuts, seeds, chocolate, dried fruits)
- Fat bombs, No"grain"ola bars and Crumble topping
I would have a very hard time working here on the homestead if I didn't have a system for meals. I mean we have to eat.
We like to eat a couple times a day, and snack in between.
I maintain my weight loss and health journey.
I get to do the things I need to do on a daily basis, without missing meals or worrying about the time it takes to prepare an entire meal from scratch, multiple times a day.
If you're short on time, make the doughs for two batches of cookies and only bake half now. Freeze the other batch in pre formed shapes so you can take only what you need for the next time.
Don't go out or order in, go pull out that extra tuna casserole you made two weeks ago and pop it in the oven!
It's also nice to have things put away for others in need, or loved ones you may want to support in a time of need. Often we want to take a fresh meal, but if many people are taking someone fresh meals, you can take a premade and frozen meal that they can reheat or cook for the first time weeks later, when people have moved on to the next needy individual.
