Eating healthy is hard.
Let's be honest: it's expensive and time-consuming.
Sometimes you need food in a hurry or want something fun but don't want to totally jack your body up as a result.
Smoothies and pizza are the low prep go-tos for us. We have smoothies it seems every day or two, and pizza at least once a week. Here is a smattering of how this week turned out.
Earlier this week I found myself hungry...we'd already had a good dinner but I wanted something else. Greek yogurt, bagged kale, and frozen berries/cherries did the trick for a late night serving of veggies and protein that still tasted sweet.
Later on in the week I was craving peanut butter and chocolate. Cocoa powder, protein powder, milk, a banana, and generous scoops of peanut butter made this one seem like a milkshake...except darn good for you with protein and healthy fats.
Oh, yeah, and after a loooong Friday, Jared made pizza. Trader Joe's frozen 3 cheese pizza takes less than 10 minutes in the oven. We bought the chicken tenders this week and Jared whipped them up with bell peppers. More protein and veggies - but uber fun and sooo much cheaper than eating out.
You tell me: Got any fun, quick, healthy foods you turn to when life gets crazy?
