Do you have trouble sticking to Paleo low-fat, low-carb lunches during your busy work week? When things get busy, it’s hard to plan ahead. By cooking a week’s worth of lunches in one go, though, you can make the most of your time without having to worry about not eating right. Plan ahead and get in on the food prep trend! Try it and share this recipe on social media with your family and friends.
Evenly portion out ¼ cup cooked cauliflower rice into each container then top each portion with 1 ½ cups of cooked veggies.
To avoid a bland routine meal, mix up your veggies so each day you get something different. Next, throw in ½ cup (4oz) of cubed chicken to each container.
Tightly seal containers and keep them in your fridge until you’re ready to serve or take it on the go.
When you’re ready to eat your prepared meal, reheat it in the microwave for a few minutes. Serve with salsa or hot sauce for added flavor and spice, or, serve with one of our low-fat, low-carb dressings.
Ready to serve!
Did you know?
It’s a widespread myth that microwaves somehow zap nutrition out of your food. While it’s true heat does break down some nutrients, that’s true of any cooking method, whether it’s over a fire, in an oven, or on the stove. In fact, the best way to keep nutrients in your food while cooking is to make sure you cook it quickly, prevent it from becoming too hot, and use as little liquid as possible. A microwave does all three!
