I love to throw together healthy meals, something about it just brings me joy especially when someone says to me “Courtney, I don’t have time,” something inside of me sparks and I go through a list of meal ideas and that person is always in awe! Making quick meals is just as easy as microwaving a lean cuisine, its just as easy as ordering something on an app and its even easier than going to pick up a to go order.
Now that I am working like a maniac, I truly need to learn to delegate more, anyone have any tips? I literally need QUICK, throw together recipes that satisfy my nutritional needs, give me a boost of energy and ZERO downfall through the day. I realized I had been making these frequently and since they are on my Jumpstart Program which I am totally doing right now to kick myself into high gear before I film my next workout series for The Fit and Fabulous Club, I thought I should share them with you.
