Funny story. I was going through my text messages this morning and realized I sent J a text at 8:37 last night, “I’m finally in bed. Drive safe”. FINALLY? At 8:37 pm? Yes, this new schedule is catching up to me.
Yesterday I trained 2 (early!) am clients, worked my regular job, then headed back to the gym for a pm client (who never showed…boo!).
I’ve talked about this before but when I’m really tired is when I crave sugar and other bad foods the most. With my new schedule, it’s more important than ever to plan and prepare my meals ahead of time. The problem for me is usually dinner. For some reason I cannot bring myself to eat pre-cooked dinners, at least not more than a night or two in a row. For this reason I’ve gotten good at creating quick, healthy dinners that take minimal effort in the evening.
There is one kitchen tool that really helps. Insert, the broiler. Broiled fish is healthy and super quick. Even if you forget to thaw the fish ahead of time, a filet or two doesn’t take long to thaw out if you run it under cold water.
I’ve eaten broiled mahi mahi and vegetables a few nights in a row now and cannot get enough. All I do is thaw the fish, spray with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, add some soy sauce and a lemon wedge, and pop in the broiler (at 500 degrees) for 10 minutes. For the veggies I season with salt and pepper and stick them on the same sheet of foil as. It’s really that easy.
Q: What are you favorite go-to meals in a pinch?
