Healthy bulk cooking recipes and ideas
Healthy Bulk Cooking Recipes and Ideas
The following bulk cooking recipes may or may not float your boat. They are designed to be simple, and not require any special skills in the kitchen. You will find freezer and refrigerator meals and cooking ideas that can be tweaked to raise or lower the amount of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats you get with each serving.
Did you know you can freeze omelets. Make your favorite omelet in the largest pan you can find, and you can get as many as 4 to 5 servings out of one mega-omelet. Toss in fresh vegetables and prepare in coconut oil rather than butter or some other oil. Add shredded cheese or cheese slices, portion and freeze.
Scrambled Egg Muffins
Add bits of lean meat, whole grain bread torn in little pieces, cheese, broccoli and your favorite vegetables in a muffin tin. Whip together as many eggs as you need, pouring the egg mixture in with your ingredients. This simple, fast, healthy-as-you-want-it-to-be creation provides an inexpensive snack or a quick breakfast. Preheat your oven to 350°F and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, individually freezing portions for use later. Pop in your microwave for a minute, and you are eating.
Pre-Packed Frozen Smoothies
Do you have a favorite smoothie recipe? Smoothies are a simple way to enjoy a healthy beverage, and when you make them at home, they are a heck of a lot less expensive than when you buy them from a juice or smoothie retail location. Instead of making a smoothie, pop your favorite ingredients into re-sealable freezer bags. Write the name of the smoothie on the bg. Do this for a couple of dozen smoothies at once, and you will always have a yummy, nutritious drink that is ready to go after less than a minute in your blender.
Veggie Pizza Pockets
Use ready-made pizza dough, whole-grain if it is available, or make your own healthy dough from scratch. You can also opt for large pita breads. You will need some organic pizza sauce, your favorite cheese, and of course your preferred pizza ingredients.
Prepare your dough, then roll it into 6″ to 8″ circles. Add your pizza sauce, leaving a 1/2″ ribbon around the edge of the dough. Place your toppings and cheese on one half of the dough and fold over. Pinch together around the edges. Lightly oil a baking sheet with olive oil or coconut oil and make for 15 to 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 450°F. Freeze, then bake or microwave when hungry.
Super Simple Chicken Nuggets
Frozen, store-bought, processed, fast food chicken nuggets can be nutritional nightmares. These are not. You bake for 25 minutes, spend about 15 minutes prep time and only use 4 ingredients. You save money and time, and these are so much healthier than anything you buy away from your home. Just 1 pound of ground chicken will make roughly 20 to 24 nuggets. Mix 1 teaspoon of kosher salt per pound of chicken. Combine 1 cup of breadcrumbs of your choice and 1/4 cup finely grated cheese.
Drop 1 tablespoon of your chicken into the bread crumb mixture. Coat all over, pressing into a flat, oval, chicken tender shape, roughly 1/2 inch thick. Cook for 25 minutes in a 375°F oven. That’s it. Make as many as you like, as these are a healthy hit with the kids, and you can create your own healthy sauce for dipping.
Any Kind of Soup
What is your favorite kind of soup? Why not make it in the largest slow cooker you have? You can combine any healthy ingredients you like, opt for low-salt soup stock, and cook for 4 to 6 hours. Bake or roast poultry or meat ahead of time, and add fresh vegetables and any other ingredients you desire. You can get anywhere from 6 to 12 large bowls of soup from a slow cooker this way, and you simply freeze individual servings in microwavable glass containers.
