It’s been four short months since I started working a full-time job in addition to being self employed and guess what?
I love it….so far!
The hours are near perfect giving me ample time to focus on my family and home which are top priorities for me. I’m still able to cook dinner during the work week, exercise and get my morning quiet time in. I have time to create content for my brand, work with Solopreneurs on their brands and balance my own business. These were non-negotiable for me when I accepted the job. I didn’t want to give up the things in life that mattered most to me. I didn’t want the added responsibility of the job to keep me from cooking at home and making time for well-care.
It seems I should have less time, but I’ve been able to squeeze so much more out of my days lately. I squeeze more out of my lunch break with pre prepped lunches and so I can my lunch break to exercise and eat.
Taking an hour to plan simple make ahead meals makes me more productive during the week. When planning my meals I choose ingredients that make me happy, are flavorful and simple to prepare. From week to week I use a combination of fresh ingredients, leftovers, and store bought items depending on what I’m craving.
Lately I’ve been craving Asian food and I want to say we’ve eaten it in some way, shape, or form every day this week. We tried a new Chinese restaurant for dinner over the weekend, I made to Kung Pow Beef and Broccoli on Instagram stories for dinner Tuesday and I made a Potstickers Stir-Fry for lunch.
Using Ling Ling Chicken & Vegetable Potstickers instead of making my own, saved me time. I combined the cooked potstickers with my favorite fresh vegetables in a delicious stir-fry. In most cases I make potstickers from scratch unless I find a brand that makes theirs with high-quality ingredients.
Ling Ling products are made using simple ingredients I recognize and feel good about eating. The ingredients in their Chicken & Vegetable Potstickers are freshly sourced cabbage, dark meat chicken, green onions, sugar, spice, ginger, sesame seed oil, chicken stock, corn starch, water, canola oil and salt. — That’s it folks!
Those are ingredients I feel good including in my work week meal plan. The potstickers, a few fresh vegetables and the delicious signature dipping sauce makes preparing this weeks worth of lunches easy.
