    Hi, I am looking for some good recipes on chicken breasts, drumsticks, shrimps, lean ground chicken, etc.

    I want to cook a whole lot of food one day and feed on it for the whole week. I am looking for rich protein, carbohydrates and fat source food. But, It should have mono or unsaturated fat in the recipe ingredients mostly.

    I was wondering if somebody can please link me up with some good recipes that don't need immediate serving and can last through out the week.

    THANK YOU icon_smile.gif))

    when living alone, I spent all Saturday mornings cooking. Esp in Summer.. I would bbq chicken, steak, hamburgers and just reheat during the week.

    Hummus is something good to snack on

    Keep carrot stix, celery stix, pickles, etc.... I keep apples and oranges and fruit in season.. when I really REALLY want something, I grab an apple.. keep em in the car.

    If you slow cook a lean roast, you can do so much !

    Beef Roast: shredded beef for tacos/tostados/taquitos/ bbq pork over cabbage slaw

    Pork Roast: bbq pork/

    Define your thoughts on the word "Good." Healthy, lowfat, lowcarb? Spicy, mild? American or other cuisine?

    Truly, there isn't all that much that is good after one week in the fridge. There can be a safety issue also. I try to use it or freeze it within two or three days, when I make something that is not consumed right away.

    It would be a better idea to make things you like that freeze well. That way you have some variety and have dinner or lunch ready For example, make a stew or chili - these generally freeze well. But if you make a big pot and keep reheating it, it will not taste very good after a few days.

    Chicken breasts and drumsticks can be prepared in quantity, but then freeze whatever the right serving size is for you. Rice and barley freeze well, noodles are best cooked fresh each time you want them. I do not find that potatoes freeze well, so i would cook those fresh each time.
