So, is this 5 meals?

Sounds delicious!

Yes, 5 meals! I think this is perfect to cook ahead for your Lean and Green meals for the week.

Since this is for 5 meals, what's the best way to measure out 1/5? Thanks

Personally I would mix it all together and weigh it on a food scale.

I made this tonight so I am planned ahead for a couple days L&G. It tastes great and is super filling. I thought it was going to be a long one to cook but it's very deceiving. I used 2 Splenda packets instead of teaspoons as I'm not a big sweetener lover, either for sugar or a sucralose sweetner. Doesn't matter. I measured on the food scale as suggested which worked great. Thanks again for all your creativity Cody!

Do you think this could be made in a crockpot? And if so, for how long and what, if anything, would need to be changed to accommodate?
