Now onto the reason for the post’s title. I’ve been following Danielle over at Blissful & Domestic and one thing I’ve really learned is planning planning and more planning goes a L-O-N-G way. So I planned out what I wanted for breakfast and dinner and went about grocery shopping. I decided to go with an open mind and check everything out – no more run in go directly to said item, get only what we are used to purchasing. While I’m not advocating MORE shopping I’m advocating SMART shopping, look at all options for what you are wanting.
I know it doesn't look like alot but this was a huge, deep bowl.
I then scooped two serving spoons on each tortilla topped with half a slice of cheese (we don’t count it as food in our house if it doesn’t have cheese ;D), rolled and wrapped in Saran wrap. This made twelve breakfast tacos, and the bowl of Buckeroo’s eggs which is about eight serving spoons of eggs and meat. I’ll add yogurt or a small bowl of cereal (he insists of cereal every morning so I feel better when he eats more than just something cold).
We were left with approximately 80 mini meatballs, which allowed 40 meatballs per meal, allowing 13 minis per person per meal. It takes three mini meatballs to make a regular size meatball, so it really is a good amount of meat. I’ll make alfredo or tomato spegahti or some sort of pasta bake.
Another thing to keep in mind is serving size, while it doesn't sound like alot of meat - it is the correct amount that we are supposed to eat. Our fist or palm only is a rough size of what we are to be eating of our main protein. I'm not a professional, but like I told my neice if you want to know anything about weight loss ask a big person. We know what does and doesn't work, I'm just not good at following through. I wish I had more will power, maybe some day.
