My Timesaver's Experiment #1 & 2- 20100725

There was a change of plans in what we were going to have for dinner today. As I was chopping away, I thought, "You know, I could probably get the chopping out of the way for tomorrow's meal." Chop, chop, chop... Then I asked myself, "How much time would I save if I chopped up a week's worth of veggies?" This is my little experiment this week, to see if the veggies hold up and whether or not the hour of prep time on Sunday is worth it. Here's what I chopped for this week:

My Timesaver's Experiment #2 - 20100725

If you're read through any of my breakfast logs, I love having yogurt+fruit as a pre-workout snack. Preparing my yogurt takes time out of my morning routine, so I decided to make a week's worth of smoothie's with the following ingredients:

* 1 Tub Dannon All-Natural Unsweetened Nonfat Yogurt
* 2 cups blueberries
* 2 cups cantaloupe
* 2 T almond extract
* 2 T coconut
* 2 T ground flax-seed

Blend all together, and voila!

Let us see how they hold up after a week, shall we?

I'll report back on my findings next week and will start my two lists.

UPDATE: Both experiments turned out really well and I will definitely try to keep pre-cutting my veggies and making my smoothies for the entire week. However, I'm going to try to make two types of smoothies to avoid any feelings of boredom!
