I had mentioned I was having some health issues and I wanted to say I am fine. I am just a 45 yrd. overweight, peri-menopause woman. I am sure some of you can understand. So I am try to exercise, eat healthier and support my system. I do so much cooking for the family that I tend to let my meals slip, especially breakfast and lunch. In an effort to help myself eat better I am doing some a-head cooking. If I just take one morning a week to pre-pare it seems to really help.
At the beginning of the week I saute a bunch of onions and garlic to use in my cooking. I keep this in the fridge.
I cook a large batch to beans and then freeze in small amounts for future use.
I also do the same thing with hummus. It freezes beautifully.
For the freezer I have been making more crisp topping.
Marinate tofu in soy sauce, ginger and garlic. I cut them in sticks and pan fry them for breakfast.
Make a salad dressing for the week.
I am still making breakfast brushette.
I make strawberries puree to have over yogurt for breakfast.
In a sauce pan cook 3 cups of berries (frozen or fresh), 1/4 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sweeter. Cook till juices release and berries can be mushed, about 5 minutes. Add more sweetener if needed. Puree and keep in fridge for a week.
