There are for sure those days when I don't have time at all to prep. It just can't happen. These are the times when I remind myself that I am not perfect and it's OK to have someone else cook my food:). It always tastes better when someone else cooks for you right!!!! Anyways, so here is what I do....
I have found what I think in my opinion is the best option. Outback Steakhouse Curbside take out! Why?
#1 Gluten Free and I have never gotten sick. This is very hard to come by. Most places say they are gluten free but that doesn't mean anything.
#2 It's as Paleo as it gets (excluding the steak not being grass fed/organic). They are awesome about doing no butter no seasoning and they will Char grill your steak for you for more flavor! Yummo!
#3 I can get 2-3 dinners and 2-3 snacks out of what I order. I am very frugal so this is important to me. I explain below....
#4 It's curbside and they do all the work for you!
Here is what I order:
-11oz gluten free Outback special (no butter, no seasoning, char grilled)
-Steamed veggies (no butter, no seasoning)
-Side salad with no croutons, cheese or onions(HATE) add extra tomatoes and cucumbers (gotta have something on there!) Ranch dressing on the side. (Depending on the week I will use this as my fat, or I will use my own at home)
-Kids gluten free chicken on the barbie (usually 3 ounces) with steamed veggies (again no butter or seasoning)
Lots of food right!? I get usually get my protein taken care of for at least 2 or 3 dinners(3-4 block dinners) and 3 snacks(1.5 to 2.5 block snacks) out of this.
Best part is it usually runs my only $22 bucks! Legit right! Love it!
SO now that you know what I do when times get tough and I can't prep etc, Tell me what you do? What's you secret?
