First Anniversary

This posting marks one year of the Fastingme blog. Those of you who have been following faithfully know that I often suggest making a quantity of something and putting some in the freezer. Let’s start our new year by socking away some Fast foods in cold storage — then you can pull them out anytime that time is short and maintain your Fasting Lifestyle.  Sending out for pizza should never be a fall-back!

If you have these in the freezer, you’ll be set for lots of dinners and two breakfasts. Make them one at a time, but build up reserves. Dieting should be easy.

Here’s a  tip from a professional about healthy eating and nutrition:                  Stock Your Freezer  Identify three meals you can prepare with pantry staples and start cooking. Store the meals in your freezer so you always have something healthy on hand when hunger strikes. For example, my go-to meals include risotto with frozen shrimp and asparagus, vegetable barley and a red lentil soup. Your goal should be to replace the meals whenever your stash starts running low”. — Christine M. Palumbo, MBA, RDN, FAND, a Chicago area registered dietitian and nutrition communications consultant                                                               

Obviously, she isn’t talking about Fast meals, but the same principle applies: stock up your freezer “so you always have something healthy on hand” for a Fast Day.
