The winco ceviche is one of my favorites in the summer. Ohh sooo good

I'm going to look for it on my HEBing odyssey lol! I'm sure they don't carry the Winco brand, but maybe they have their brand? LOVE ceviche!

As a single male in his mid 20's this thread screams my name. I do very little cooking and my meal prep takes me about 20 mintues for the week. Here's an example of my daily menu.

Breakfast - oikos triple zero yogurt

1st snack - 1oz roasted peanuts

lunch - 3oz shredded chicken with 1 oz of shredded cheese (I buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it for the week)

2nd snack - 2 hard boiled eggs (usually can only eat the whites)

dinner - 3oz meatballs with 1oz cheese

3rd snack - 1 individual sized smart pop popcorn bag

I do want to start adding more greens and Fiber into this routine but it has worked out well so far.

Oh! This is an awesome example for "non-cooking"!!! It looks delish! So do you melt the cheese on the shredded chicken? Inquiring minds an all, cuz Magic 8Ball says it's in my future! :D

I do! I shred the whole chicken on Sunday and put that in a large tupperware. When I pack my lunch in the mornings I will weigh out 3oz chicken in a small tupperware and add the cheese on top. Then its all good to throw in the microwave at work!

Super great idea for a quick meal!!! Oh and you could use Jenn's idea of the frozen tri-color fajita veggies too. Just throw in 1 oz on top of the chicken under the cheese! And squirt Taco Bell hot sauce over it for a Mexican version!!

Winco is a store, so you it's not a brand you will find in HEB. Go to the service deli or seafood section of HEB, and see if they have it available. If HEB doesn't have it, then your local Mexican market will (Do you have Fiestas in your area?)

@jenn1 thanks for the ceviche idea. Easy to find lots of different varieties around here to keep it interesting.

Can of refrained Beans. Add some to any of the precooked chicken options maybe some cheese, Greek yogurt , avocado or salsa to liven it up. Easily heated up in a microwave.

I will check out the deli areas of a super market. In addition to sliced sandwich meat you can also usually find single serving (so really like 4) meatloaf/meatballs, precooked chicken breasts, cooked veggies and sometimes appropriate salads/sides. And soup! Sometimes they have soup!

Also hummus. So much hummus.

This is an easy and tasty low cal, high Protein meal. It's written for an instapot, but it can be adapted for a slow cooker as well

https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2015/04/pressure-cooker-fast-and-easy-chicken-chile-verde-recipe.html

I made a few changes:

I used Poblano, Hatch & Jalapeno Chilies (left out the Anaheim chilies, based on personal preference)

I used boneless skinless chicken breasts

I added hominy & chicken broth, to make it more like pozole (low carbers, don't add hominy)

I left out the cumin (I wanted to taste the chicken and chilies and find cumin tends to dominate)

It was yummy, easy, and totally healthy, a win, win, win!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
