Yesterday I made a total of nine meals for the week, which I freeze. I like to call it “Sabrina’s Healthy and Handy Frozen Meals.” I first made eight mini spinach, chickpea and tofu patties to use as my “meat.” There was more spinach in this batch, hence the green color.I then made a large pot of brown rice and cooked up some black beans as a side dish for the patties. Tons of protein and fiber going on there! I only made four of these and the other four patties I wrapped up and froze for later use.One thing that I’ve been doing lately is ordering a small Chinese fried rice and mixing into my own. My “fried rice” brown rice, sugar snap peas, carrots, broccoli, and egg whites “fried” with a little olive oil. Just mixing a few tablespoons of the Chinese fried rice really makes me feel like I am really eating a huge pile of greasy Chinese fried rice. The good thing is that it doesn’t even really bother my stomach. I know the soy sauce either has corn or wheat in it, which is why I usually stick to those meals at night to sleep off any symptoms. In this case, I haven’t hat to worry about that, yet. Knocks on wood.

Question: Do you prepare meals in advanced for the week?
Every week I usually make the “fried rice” because everything is already mixed in; carbs, protein and veggies. I don’t have to do anything extra. Just heat and eat!
