One of the things I’m loving the most about this fingerlickinNutrition lifestyle is that if I make new meals during the beginning of the week, there’s usually something left for the rest of the week. I can mix and match the meals depending on my mood and still stay within calorie and nutrient range. Basically, these meals are kind of designed in a “block out” style. If I’m averaging around 400 calories or a little more for each meal and keep the nutritional value high and somewhat balanced, I can stray away from my daily menu. In other words, nothing is set in stone. If I’m not in the mood for a smoothie at snack time, I can have fish and soup instead. Having leftovers also means that I have to get creative. Sometimes I surprise myself with the stuff I come up with, but I have to admit, it’s not for everybody. Seaweed and Chocolate Banana Smoothies for breakfast? Hmmmm, interesting! Another way to look at the Leftovers Revival I will spend less money. What I didn’t use this week and didn’t have to throw out, I can use again next week.
Don’t forget: The first place you should grocery shop is in your own fridge and pantry. Save the bucks, save time, and avoid the extra stress!
