LAZY MEAL PREP RECIPE

Health and Fitness

Meal prepping plays such a big role if you want to live a healthy lifestyle. If you prepare your meals in advance, you are less likely to cheat. For this week I opted to make  simple yet tasty dishes.

I decided to change my recipe a bit from my usual  grilled chicken brown rice combo. Bought Turkey Sausage from SnR and wanted to pair it up with kamote and veggies and honey garlic shrimp with broccoli and brown rice.

Also bought fruits that I had cut and placed in tupperwares so I have snacks for when I’m hungry! You must always prepare snacks as well to avoid binging on bad food.

I decided to dedicate a section of my  blog to Cheat Meals. As I have mentioned before, cheat meals can actually be beneficial for you. When you eat healthy and when you eat the same thing everyday, your body gets so used to it. Cheat meals can be used as motivation as well. It can also boost your metabolism. But take note, cheat MEAL not a cheat day. I also have to note that you must have “SMART” cheat meals. It still has to be in moderation.

What could be better than to have the biggest and juiciest pork ribs in town as my cheat meal for the week?  I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the opening of Morganfield’s in Mall Of Asia! I’m not much of a meat or pork eater in general, but my tastebuds were in awe with how juicy their ribs taste!

We started with  the Crab and Spinach Dip priced at Php 345.The dip consisted of crab meat, spinach and parmesan perfectly infused together. I loved it! ( I love anything with cheese )

Morganfield’s is known for their “Sticky Bones”, which is made of prime pork rib that is slowly baked and smoked to perfection. It comes in four flavors: Hickory BBQ, Garlicky BBQ, Smoked Peppercorn and Spicy Asian BBQ.

We ordered the Ribs Samplers ( Php 3,295 ) which is good for 3 – 4 people. ( We couldn’t finish it!! ) It comes with Three flavourful half-slab ribs, Grilled Footlong Farmer’s Bratwurst Sausage, garden salad, corn on the cob, french fries and corn bread.

Out of all the ribs, my personal favorite was the smoked peppercorn spare ribs. The meat was so tender that it would easily slide off the bone. I enjoyed eating it together with the corn bread!

We were also served chilled coolers to go together with our filling meal. The Begonia is made of chunks of kiwi, strawberries and lime served in lemon lime soda topped with passion fruit syrup.

Virgin Apple Mojito ( Php 175 )

The Virgin Apple Mojito consists of fresh apples, lime chunks, mint leaves, brown sugar topped with soda. I opted the Virgin Apple Mojito and mmmm this was delicious! 

Morganfield’s is known for other dishes that I have yet to try such as Bacon wrapped Meatballs, New York Strip Steak, Pork Sausage Platter, Pulled Pork Burger and other porky-licious dishes. That means I have to come back for another cheat meal!
