I've decided to start eating better in order to get the gains I want, but I'm always too busy to cook the food I need to eat. I'm thinking that the best way is to prepare a ton of food at once and live off of that for a few days. My main concern is how long is certain stuff good in the fridge, particularly chicken breast?
I also wouldn't mind making like a gallon sized protein shake to keep in the fridge, but I recall hearing somewhere that this is not a good idea. It this an OK thing to do, and if so, how long can I expect this to be good for? (water, protein powder, heavy cream, strawberries).
I go with five days, too. I make my a few pounds of chicken on Sunday and bag it up to bring to work. Whatever I don't eat by Friday COB goes in the garbage. Sometimes (especially if there is a real good sale happening) I will make a lot of chicken and put the cooked chicken in the freezer to make it even easier in the long term.
Because I'm not on an Atkins Diet nor would I ever do one. I'm a BB not a dieter! - Jodi
Chicken will dry up in a fridge after awhile, I dont think I've left anything longer than 2 days. I usually cook 3-6 at a time, and dont usually go over 6 chicken breasts in a day, and cooking them doesn't take that long.
