At the risk of starving...

Does anyone have any ideas for quick, easy meals? I am fairly busy, as most people are these days, and am looking for quick throw-together stuff I can grab on my way out the door, or that takes a few minutes to assemble, yet remain good for my BTD.

The only thing that I have managed to make ahead of time is tofu burgers.......they can be eaten in the car.
I am real new to this, and I find my head spinning these days, a lot of info to absorb!

Seems like I live in the grocery store these days........but worth every minute.

I find the easiest thing to eat on the go is an Ezekiel tortilla roll up. I'll spread the tortilla with a thin coat of softened goat cheese then add a large row of field greens lettuce mix then roll this up.

Package it up in wax paper so that when you open one end and the other is still covering the bottom of it, this makes it easier for eating in the car. Then to this I'll eat a hard boiled egg. Instead of an egg sometimes I will put the protein into the tortilla roll, eg. cut up sausage, salmon, chicken or beans.

Hi cewyman,
you do not need to cook a lot, but for BTD please cook some times (two or three in a week) fresh veggies or frozen in case of hurry and a little bit of fowl or fish. For canned and frozen recipes read careful the labels and the ingredients.
Salads with canned tuna, salmon, mackerels or grilled chicken and turkey at your choice and boiled eggs, feta cheese  or mozzarella. Rice salad with the same protein and grilled zucchini, stir fried mushrooms, fennels, radicchio as you like it.
Rye or manna or ezequiel bread sandwiches. A hearthy soup heated form the fridge and put in a thermic pot. Carrot and celery sticks with nut butter and what else you can find the time to cook or find enough compliant and healthy for BTD !

My two cents an Merry new year

Maria,

Thanks....all that sounds good. Now I am hungry!

My plan is to make up some soups, etc! freeze them, and thaw out as needed, etc! The trick is finding the time to do this. I keep forgetting that I can have chicken. I have never eaten beef, and am so focused on the benificials, that I forget the neutrals.

I'll get it.......

Happy New Year to all!!

All my meals take less than 30 minutes as long as you have prepared ahead. I always prepare my meals on the weekend at least a couple of hours in the kitchen on Sunday morning will save me time during the week. Cut up your veggies, make stocks, soups and freeze them. Lentil soup takes no time at all. Boil up some spelt or rice pasta and throw in some of your veggies and if your a nonnie you can have tomato sauce with that pasta. Salmon on a bed of fresh mixed salad greens. Cod fish with some olive oil and parsley. The list is endless really prepare ahead and you'll be fine.

Realize that you would be better off eating in a less stressful environment then while driving. Your food will be digested better. Maybe you also need to try to adjust your schedule.

This does get better with time. Keep learning. You will eventually figure out what foods you can buy and which foods you should avoid then you can just zip in and out of the store.

Yeah...adjusting my schedule would seem easy....but then nothing would get done.
I don't eat in my car everyday, but enough so that I wanted to find healthy and quick ideas.

Being a BT- A, and a Type A personality...is somewhat challenging.

As I said, I am new to this, and getting my kitchen properly stocked, I am sure, will make this easier as well.

I am loving all this advise...keep it coming!

here are complete protein combos to work with when planning your meals:
Legumes + seeds
Legumes + nuts
Legumes + dairy
Grains + legumes
Grains + dairy
the exception is soy protein which is a complete protein.

buy nori wraps to make your compliant 'sushi' tacos!
cut the wrap into bite size pieces for quick snacks on the go!

Hi cewyman,

My breakfast, which took less than 10 minutes to prepare, consisted of nitrate-free turkey kielbasa, sliced and browned in ghee, julienned ginger, sliced green onions, and brocolli florets, all steamed together in a cast iron pan with lid. Added a bit of wf tamari at the end. Yum.

A trick is to chop your vegetables beforehand and keep them in the fridge (I do this with carrots, celery, romaine, green onions, etc.). This way, I can throw together a salad or a stirfry in minutes.

Drea,

That was breakfast? That sounds more like lunch. How do you determine portion size?

I am amazed at all the clever varieties that everyone has come up with.

I must experiment more.

Think dinner for breakfast, since breakfast should be your biggest and highest protein meal of the day.

I don't eat grains at breakfast anymore ever since I noticed that they were bonking me (made me tired). Now I eat them at dinner, if at all, and only one serving. Also, I don't really follow portion sizes, per se. I allow myself unlimited amounts of veggies, and 2-5 ounces of protein per meal. I've found that I do better with more than the recommended amount of protein per day. I also do best with protein/veggies for breakfast; it fills me up nicely until lunch. Lunch is usually a nice big salad with the aforementioned chopped veggies, canned tuna or salmon, and some homemade beneficial dressing, which I make ahead of time in big batches.

I used to take my lunches to work when I worked away from home (saves money and I get to choose what I eat).

Drea,

It is a good thing I love vegetables huh?

Learning my body is coming along better. I have always been pretty attuned to it, but more so lately. I have never eaten beef, and knowing what I know now, I thank God!  
Bread...not sure what that does, I never really ate a lot of it...well crackers...love them!

I like the Kashi brand (heart smart) cereal, and I now have Amarath flakes that I have yet to try. I usually eat these dry, at my desk....bad, I know.

I did try this one BTD waffle recipe....my, was that ever filling. I wasn't hundry most of the day.

If I had time in the morning, I would make a more condusive meal...until then, I have to settle for quick/healthy.     Any suggestions?

Try making your breakfast in the evening and then just rewarm it in the morning. That is what I do. I rarely cook my breakfast in the morning.

Another suggestion is to bring in some homemade soup for breakfast. When I make soup I double the recipe and freeze individual portions. As products of the processed food society, we have been trained that breakfast consists of grains; but for me, breakfast can be soup, stirfry, salad, whatever I choose! Sometimes it is just dried fruits and nuts.

I agree!

Fortunatly, I am not a fan of processed foods, or fast food restaurants. I am finding out that, without knowing it, I have been following this BTD fairly close all my life, except for the dairy, nuts, and supplements.  I use, used forgive me ,  skim milk for coffee, cereal.

I can see that planning is key....I will get on it!

I agree...food is food, I don't think it matters if, say eggs for example, are eaten in the am or pm...but I may be wrong.

Pre-pacakged salads, cut-up vegetable and fruits, frozen batches of beans/legumes/grains/pastas, canned salmon/tuna, canned beans, Ezekiel bread/tortillas and manna bread are all items that can assist to make meals more efficient.

Choose one day of the week that is convenient for you to make some food from scratch, prep vegetables/fruits, cook fish/seafood/meats/soups/entrees.

I believe that a little conscious pre-planning and organization will enable you to spend less time cooking before your meals.

Fresh salads topped with your choice of either beans, fish, meat, or a piece of bread is always easy and can be portable if you have a tight closing container. Top with spices, herbs, lemon juice, olive oil, et al.


BTD compliant meals do not need to be complicated nor devised from complicated and lengthy recipes.

Grapefruit and Avocado Salad

sounds like an interesting mix!

Hi there and welcome. Why strike what seems to be a favourite?

Change it...chicken eggs (neutral), toast...try rye bread it toasts great, pancakes try using spelt flour and soy/rice milk (mmm thinks...what else goes in pancakes)...

It's not always about what you have to give up but how can you change what you already eat and make it compliant. Even if all you do is start by eliminating the avoids first then start working out what you are eating and then start including more beneficials and then how and when you eat...gradually it all falls into place.

BYW I make my Type A husband compliant muffins. They freeze well and can be grabbed for an extra snack when mobile. Also dried fruit, seeds and nuts kept in a little container already mixed can be grabbed quickly and stave off the munchies.

Sue,
Your mention of muffins, and then dried fruits and nuts, makes me think of a modified fruit-cake type of muffin.  Back when I thought my best way to health was to be a vegetarian (shudder at the thought, now!), I used to make breads into one-dish meals with lots of nuts, ghee, dried fruits, flax seeds, eggs, blackstrap molasses, oats, and spelt flour or sprouted ground grains.  Seems like a good light meal for a type A.

I am loving all the advise! And look forward to it.

I strayed a little over the new years celebration (new years eve/day), but am getting back on track first thing this morning...hot green tea instead of the normal Latte!
I can honestly say, I noticed a big difference in how I felt after eating the "wrong" type of foods...........amazing!

I think where I am making this complicated for myself is, I am trying to do everything "organic" now, when I think, like mentioned, I should just weed out the avoids to start. Today is the day I have set aside to pre-cut/cook some meals for the week........here we go!

I have eaten more salmon and brocolli these past few days than I ever have...

Side note: Without trying, I lost 3 lbs.....
