Home Cookin’ on the Go

Hi there 😀

Yes, I’m well aware the title of this post could pose as an oxy-moron. However, this post serves to prove that false!

As I mentioned in yesterday morning’s post, Tuesday was a marathon of a day. I worked 8 hours at the BIC, came home, shoveled food into my mouth, and went to the gym to train some clients while also getting in a workout myself. I was home by 9:00 pm, but I still managed to have a home cooked dinner on the table.

Said shoveled food:



Not a granola bar or frozen meal – homemade veggie enchiladas!

No, I didn’t create the ever-so-lusted-after 25th hour; I planned ahead! Monday was my easy day this week; all I had on the agenda was to train a couple clients and do some tax stuff for the LLC. So with my extra hours, I helped myself out in the form of prep-work.

I had all the fixin’s for veggie enchiladas, but we had plans to go out for Indian food that night, I simply prepared them to be cooked tonight instead.


Used all 6 of these Ezekiel tortillas:


This ensures there will be leftovers to freeze and pull out  in the future on a night where I wasn’t so adequately prepared – hey, those nights happen too.


The veggies:


While slicing up the veggies, I practiced another time-saving tip by slicing a few extra to include in today’s sack lunch:




For Shane’s, I used Jenna’s method of poaching some free-range chicken (breasts) and shredded the chicken to include in his tortillas. It was so quick and easy!

Before heading into the gym last night, I just pulled them out of the fridge, shredded some raw jack cheddar on top, preheated the oven to 400, popped the pans into the oven for about 10 minutes, and voila! A home cooked dinner in 10 minutes:





Another time-saving measure I did on Monday was deep cleaned the entire house. If I set aside two free hours to get the floors, counters, bathrooms, and laundry done, then it doesn’t pile up and get gross during the days I’m busy. Not to mention, tasks lists and Google Calendar save my life. Call me type A, but I just can’t stand feeling rushed and disorganized – it seriously sets a bad tone for the entire day! What’s with that?



And I’m off!! Got a majorly busy one planned again for today. Oof. However, I think I might have some leftovers to help me out with meal planning today 😉

Tomorrow morning I’ll be posting my 10K and 15K training plan, along with the process I follow for developing a training plan for a race.


What are your time-saving tips? Help a sista out! I know I gathered some great ones from Morgan, Kath, and Sarah at the Healthy Living Summit!
