Found this in my files....

OAMC LOW CARB RECIPES

Lighten up your week. . .Prepare on the weekend!
There have been a couple of threads recently where people are trying to get organized with their meal-planning along with other activities. I have a couple of files on cooking ideas for once a week or once a month. Just thought I'd share. Here's one I've had in my files for a long time. . .I use some of the ideas in it, but it's a place to start if you're struggling. Feel free to add what you've got.

ONE WEEKEND'S WORK:

Grocery List (this will cover more than just one week):

10 pounds of chicken thighs or breasts, cook ½ on shopping day, freeze the rest in dinner size portions
2 dozen eggs
6 cans of tuna
10 pounds of ground beef, cook ½ on shopping day, freeze the rest in dinner size portions
5 pound beef roast
2 boxes Lipton onion soup mix
6 cans chicken broth
6 can beef broth
large tub of yogurt
2 bricks of cream cheese, tub of sour cream
zucchini or yellow squash
red or yellow pepper
green onions, tomatoes, yellow onion, celery
6 cans French cut green beans
2 cans mushrooms
jarred Alfredo sauces, 2 plain, 2 with cheese & garlic or whatever. . .

What to do with what you’ve bought (on shopping day):

*Take the 10 pounds of beef and divide in 2 parts. Take one part and place in a large Dutch oven and add 2 cans of beef broth and one envelope soup mix. Add 2 cans of water to that and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to break up the beef into smaller pieces. Reduce to simmer and continue cooking until all the moisture is gone. Cool the beef and then put into Ziploc bags in 2-cup portions. Freeze. Now you always have something ready to heat and eat! I add this to alfredo sauce and serve over French cut green beans. Very tasty and lowcarb.

*Now with the chicken, take half and boil it in chicken broth until the meat falls from the bone, remove bones and skin (if using boneless, cook until the chicken looks like shreds) return chicken to Dutch oven, and continue cooking until moisture is absorbed, add some red pepper and chopped onion for the last 10 minutes of cooking. Remove from heat. Divide into 2-cup portions and put in Ziploc bags. Now you have chicken for chicken taco salads, or Chinese chicken soup.

*Put yogurt in a mesh strainer over a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Place in fridge overnight to drain for Greek -style yogurt.

Cooking Day (do in this order for efficiency):

*Put beef roast in 325 oven in covered roaster with ½ cup water. Sprinkle 1 Tbs salt or seasoned salt and/or other seasonings all over surface of roast before putting it in the roaster. Add the water and one large yellow onion, sliced. Cook for 2 hours or until tender.

*After you put the roast in, put six split chicken breasts in a baking dish. Sprinkle with salt, pepper & garlic powder to taste and add ½ cup of water. Cover and bake along with roast. Chicken should be tender in 45 minutes or less.

*On the stove in a large saucepan, add the liquid from 2 cans French style green beans. Simmer uncovered until the liquid is almost gone, add a ¼ cup meat stock, 1 Tbs olive oil and beans. Simmer until liquid is almost gone, stirring occasionally. Refrigerate.

*Cut up a pound of yellow squash. Melt ¼ stick of butter in a pan and add squash. Cook over medium heat until most of the liquid is gone, stirring occasionally. Cut 2 large tomatoes in half. Scoop out pulp and seeds and add to squash. Wrap tomato shells tightly in plastic and refrigerate.

*Remove the thick yogurt from the strainer, discard liquid whey, and sweeten yogurt to taste.

*When chicken is done, wrap each piece and refrigerate. Add ½ cup of water to the pan and deglaze (wash off the brown stuff) with the liquids in the pan and a fork. Pour into a glass and refrigerate. Repeat the process for the pan with the beef roast.

*Cut the roast into three pieces. Slice one piece into 2 steaks. Dice one into large chunks. Shred or chop finely the third piece.

*Boil 6-12 eggs.

*Wash and refrigerate salad greens and veggies. Chop a sweet pepper and reserve some for salads, the rest in the squash.

*Make some deviled eggs.

*When fat is solid on top of stocks, remove it and discard. Reduce chicken stock (simmer uncovered until it reduces in volume) until it’s very strong. Melt 8 oz cream cheese in it. There’s chicken gravy.

*De-fat and reduce beef stock. Add a quarter of it to the green beans. Melt 8 oz of cream cheese and 8 oz sour cream into remaining beef stock. There’s beef gravy.

*Make meat salad with one chicken breast and some roast chunks. Add mayo and chopped celery, sweet peppers, pickles or whatever you think you will like. Also make up a few cans of tuna salad since you have the fixings for it already out. Stuff tomato halves with this for lunches and/or snacks.

This should all take less than 6 hours including cleaning as you go, or you can break it up over the day or 2 days. The point is that you can prep an entire week’s fast meals and snacks in a single cooking spree that will take far less time than cooking the same menu daily would. From Monday until the next weekend, you’ll do a lot less dishwashing and kitchen cleaning. A few hours on the weekend and you have fast food all week long. Since you have so much food prepped and will no doubt do something fresh as well from time to time, there will be plenty of stuff for snacking on as well.

Repeat weekly with different meats and veggies.

Bumping this! I plan on having a major cooking extravaganza soon and will post everything here in case anyone needs some ideas. I do LC, but my 2 kids don't. I work full time, hit the gym, then get the kids and come home and do homework. There is no time to cook from scratch every night

Whoa, you are amazing! I will keep up and see what you post. I have a dear friend that while her children are now gone, she is trying hard as a school teacher, work out, and have supper on the table. She is tired when she finally gets home. So maybe I can find some ideas here and send them on to her. Thank you.

I totally relate! I have fibromyalgia and also just got diagnosed with sleep apnea, so there are days where I barely make it through. I guess OAMC sounds about right for your friend!
