I should be cleaning.

I just made the biggest mess you can imagine in my kitchen, but it was a productive mess. I went to the grocery store and bought so much healthy food its insane, then I came home and began to wash, cook, steam, and puree every vegetable known to man so that I am prepared for all of the healthy meals I have planned for the next week or two. I'm exhausted. My blender and food processor are exhausted (and pieces of junk I have come to learn). My fridge and freezer are packed. I still have more to do, measuring out portions of ground beef and turkey and chicken. I don't know if anyone in real life spends this much time preparing for meals, if you do, kudos to you! I don't know how long I can keep it up, but in theory it should make preparing meals much easier...we'll see how it goes. I still have to clean out the fridge...well technically I did, I took out all the stuff, threw away empty bottles etc., but now there is a pile of tupperware that needs to be cleaned out on my counter. *sigh* But the kids just went down for their nap and I need a break. So I'm going to try and ignore the filth for a couple hours and lay on the couch watching tv. ha.

I did that yesterday. Not the pureeing part, because, well, that's too much. But I buy huge amounts of chicken and beef and split it up in ziplocs and then freeze it. makes preparing dinner so much faster and easier.

Yay for you! I don't usually prep this much, but I know when I do have stuff prepped in my freezer I am a much happier person!

Take a break and do the dishes after dinner. ;)
