I’m going to start a regular feature on my blog called Food Prep Sunday. Where I’ll feature three things that I chose to cook during my weekly meal prep time each Sunday afternoon or evening.
1 Cup of Black Eyed Beans (I had them leftover from a salad last week)
1/4 Cup of Ground Flax Seeds
3 Baby Carrots, Grated
2 Mushrooms, Diced
1 Tbsp Egg Whites
Dash of Chili Powder, Paprika, Cumin, Black Pepper
Mix in a bowl, form into patties and grill in a frying pan on both sides. I cook each side about 5-7 mins.
I’m packing bean burgers with ground turkey & asparagus for the week.
Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
I am not going to even claim that I made these. I picked these up at the butcher section of my Loblaws. But it’s a great way to get veggies and protein in. I’m trying to keep a bit of red meat in my diet to ensure my iron stores stay consistent.
This recipe I have used since I started on my fitness journey. You can find it on her bodybuilding.com site.
I adapt it based on what’s in my fridge but the basics usually remain the same.
