Tag Archives: 5day

I’m a strong proponent of precooking your meals for the week. Not only does it make it easier to follow a diet but its cheaper and faster as well! It eliminates the last minute struggle to figure out what to eat for lunch or the temptation to just eat fast food when in a hurry. The recipes in this category I call “5day” because they are designed to be easy, fast, and make enough food for the whole week. Some of them don’t make exactly 5 days worth of food and I normally cook for my wife as well but the concept is called 5day. One general note, I normally try to make the ingredients scale logically so if you need to adjust the serving sizes, it should be pretty easy. For example, for 8 total meals I might use 8 chicken breasts. If you wanted to make it to 5 meals you would simply use 5 chicken breasts. Don’t kill yourself weighing out 56 oz/8 * 5 ounces of chicken breasts!
