I just listened to the podcast where Pearl and Serene talk about PMS and why you want to eat E meals to help increase your serotonin.
What a game changer! I instantly went to my Instant pot to make a batch of brown rice while I worked from home.
A few hours later, I headed to the fridge to see what I could do for lunch. I was determined to try this E meal theory.
This is what I ended up with:
1/2 cup Ground turkey taco meat
1/2 cup Brown rice
Scant shredded cheese
I heated it all up and literally had it ready for lunch in less than five minutes. It was like all my attempts at prep work and Drive Thru Sue convenience all came together in one moment. It was magical.
Here are my takeaways:
Prep work makes the dream work. Having pre-bagged servings of both the taco meat and zucchini saved my lunch. I buy a three pound package of ground turkey with my regular groceries and cook it while I’m working on other things in the kitchen, using my homemade taco seasoning. Once it’s cooled, I portion it out in 1/2 cup (4 ozs.) servings in sandwich bags and freeze. I have no problem using the microwave to defrost it while I’m cooking other things.
Same for the zucchini. Whenever I have extra veggies with no home, I chop them up and put them in single serve baggies and toss in the freezer to add to eggs and rice bowls and any other need.
Simple is best. Because the meat was already flavored, there was hardly any need for more seasoning. I imagine some people would like hot sauce, but I had it just the way it was.
