What We Eat When We Didn't Plan Ahead

Meal prepping is such a “thing” these days and you know that I (Robyn) usually cook two big recipes over the weekend and that’s what we eat all week. But what if I don’t cook, there isn’t enough or we just don’t feel like eating what I made? Then what?

Whole Food Muscle What We Eat When We Didn't Plan Ahead

Because we make a point to keep some standard staples in the house we can always throw together a meal or 5 with no planning at all. Here are some ideas:

  • Oatmeal with fruit (you know this is our go-to food in a pinch)
  • Sweet potato with avocado and beans (Robyn likes lemon pepper seasoning on hers)
  • Whole-wheat pasta with marinara sauce, veggies and beans
  • Big salad: Kale, spinach, seeds, nuts, veggies, fruit, avocado, beans and/or quinoa
  • Veggie wrap: hummus and salad fixings in a toasted tortilla
  • Whole-wheat bread or tortilla with hummus or peanut butter (add raisins to make it really yummy!)
  • Potato with peas and corn (Russ likes apple cider vinegar on his)
  • Rice or quinoa and beans with marinara sauce (with or without adding taco seasoning and veggies)
  • Quinoa and fruit (you can eat quinoa just like oatmeal and it is even good cold)

You can mix and match any of the above to create a healthy and filling meal with no planning.

If you’re super hungry and need something to munch on while you wait for your potatoes or rice to cook, a few raw nuts and raisins are a great option and so is celery with a nut-butter of your choice.

Planning ahead is ideal. But it doesn’t always happen. That doesn’t mean you are destined to eat processed not-really-food or not-good-for-you takeout. It’s all about keeping real food you can make easily in the house.

"Hello
Russ and Dr Robyn,"

"You changed my life and my husband's. His cholesterol has been cut in half. We both have lost about 12 pounds and feel terrific. We don't miss meat, fish, eggs or yogurt or cheese. Thank you so much for all you are doing for the world. We too thought we were eating healthy but couldn't lose weight even though we exercised a lot. Until we changed what we ate. We are truly grateful. I loved your Christmas message about what to say to those comments people make when you say you eat Plant Based.

Thank you again."

Nancy and Mark Hetterly
