Lazy day (or lazy girl lol) meal diary here for you. This is my full day of eating from a day when I needed quick and easy meals. My cooking style has always been and will forever be about meals that use simply, everyday ingredients and are quick to prep.
M1 – Smoothie
1 scoop vanilla protein
1/2 cup blueberries
1 handful spinach
1/2 cup ice
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
Sometimes I’m intentional about preparing a certain kind of smoothie, but when I’m feeling lazy, I simply grab whatever fruit I have on hand and add it to a scoop of protein (a must for my M1!). Today, I saw spinach and added it… well… just because I feel super healthy when I add spinach to a smoothie haha. I don’t ever taste it when paired with a banana but love getting in the extra nutrients.
M2 – Chicken Sausage, Veggies + Rice
1 all natural chicken sausage (this one was was a Trader Joe’s spicy jalapeno one)
1/2 yellow bell pepper, sliced
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1/4 onion, sliced
1 cup (cooked) rice
Throw all ingredients into a skillet until cooked
My M2 tends to always be my “lunch.” And for lunch, I almost always have the prior nights dinner. I typically cook a fresh dinner every night and I’m always sure to make a double batch so I can eat it for the next day’s dinner. That’s something that is so easy to get in the habit of doing. It’s like a meal prep without even having to meal prep lol. M2 then is as easy as reheating and enjoying!
M3 – Hard Boiled Eggs, Apple + PB
2 Hardboiled Eggs
1 Apple, sliced
2 tbsp natural peanut butter
I like to have hardboiled eggs on hand because it’s such an easy protein option that doesn’t require any cook time when they’re already made. I recently tried this new steaming technique to “hard boil” the eggs and it worked so well! They peeled perfectly, which is always the challenge for me. Because this was my lazy girl meal day, I put this meal together in 3 minutes at most.
M4 – Stuffed Peppers
HERE is the link to the full recipe
Another one of my weekly grocery store staples is a rotisserie chicken. Like I mentioned, I try to make dinner (which is my M4) fresh every night. This is because it totally keeps me full and satisfied if this meal is extra delicious. Yet, when you’re feeling lazy or short on time, a rotisserie chicken is your best friend. This meal is all of 10 mins of hands on prep. And I picked it because we had bell peppers in the fridge as well.
M5 – Egg Scramble
2 eggs, 1 egg white
1/4 zucchini, finely chopped
1/4 bell pepper, diced
1/8 onion, diced
Small handful mushrooms, diced
1 garlic clove, minced (I’m obsessed with garlic, use way less if you aren’t)
2 tbsp shredded mozzarella cheese
Saute veggies and add in eggs to scramble
(I found this pretty photo instead of the one I took in dark lighting lol so I thought I’d share. For this meal, I didn’t eat banana slices)
I’m all about breakfast food. For some reason, I never get sick of it and I enjoy it even more later in the day than I do at breakfast. Haha, my reason for that is so lazy but it fits with today’s meal diary theme; in the AM, I’m usually too lazy to cook on the stove, which is why I opt for a smoothie haha. An egg scramble is so quick to make and fills me when I get hungry after dinner. One tip I have is that if you get a lot of veggies for the week, chop them ups when used in a meal like this, it cuts the prep time in half.
