With us just crossing over into the new year , and seeing the influx of gym members hitting the gym as well as the ever ending facebook posts of people crushing their goals. I think i've honestly already seen enough posts for the year that go like---

you're a freak of nature Becky.... but good for you...
Throughout my time contemplating and seeing people hit their weight loss goals I came face to face with something I personally would like to conquer and I feel like there are plenty of other people out there that probably struggle with the same things.
1--I noticed a pattern about myself ---- I make bad food choices when I'm busy and in a hurry, I much rather choose something convenient than what is good for me therefore I struggle with will power and diet.
2---I've come to the realization that because I am a Mother, a Herdsman, and a business owner I am always busy therefore I perpetuate this cycle of self sabotage.
3. You guys.... I need to start meal prepping.... and add another thing to my list to do if I'm going to be successful and overcome this awful habit of mine.
This last week I decided to give it ago. On days I had time to cook supper I chose healthy meals and I made extra or I made two meals. I dished myself a portioned controlled plate and froze some in containers as a pre-made meals that I could microwave throughout the week when I got too busy to cook .
It Turned out a lot better than I would have thought so I'm going to share a couple recipes in case you guys are looking for something else to try .
The first recipe we tried was Lemon chicken with broccoli , we both enjoyed this meal but if you love garlic ,which we do- you could probably bump it up a bit. we pair this with some parmesan garlic rice and easily had 5-6 meals prepared
This is the other new recipe we tried at the advice of a family member and this one was a BIG thumbs up by the entire family --- Thanks Michael Koons for the suggestion!
this also froze and microwaved beautifully!
Wish me luck as I start my meal prepping adventure, and I hope you guys enjoy these recipes I posted this week. These meals can be made from farm fresh or market fresh ingredients--- enjoy!
