During the diet experiment that I did a couple weeks ago, the one where I lost 7 pounds in 7 days, (Link is here if you missed it: http://www.mashelite.com/losing-7-lbs-in-7-days-and-get-stronger-by-emily-drew-mash/) I used the opportunity to be creative with some new recipes using almost nothing besides a meat and vegetables. I am always, like you, looking for something that doesn’t wreck my eating plan and is still delicious. This particular eating plan was pretty strict, so these recipes are super clean.
I prepped food at the beginning of the week including a spaghetti squash. Just cut it in half and roast, flesh side down, for about an hour. (Throw some sweet potatoes and chicken breast in the oven too and you’ve got yourself a no-work meal prep!) I finished the first squash in 2 days, so I ended up getting another one to finish out the week. I found it a very versatile and great to have on hand. Most of these recipes I threw together with food I had already prepped like chicken breast. None of them have more than 5 ingredients and can all be put together in just a few minutes, hence the skillet. Use these ideas as an inspiration and feel free to make these your own and modify them to meet your own diet needs and macros.
Also, if you make any of these or better versions, let me know! IG @emilydrewmash
