Loaded Sausage Bowl

Loaded Sausage Bowl

I was out grocery shopping and the moment I walked in the door I became famished. I needed food and fast. This bowl was created based on the ingredients in my fridge. Honestly, it was so satisfying, I just had to share it with you here.

I don't know about you, but when I grocery shop with my kids, it's basically a feasting time for them. Anyone else? So by the time I get home, they're full and I'm starving.

So on this day, Lake went to playing and I went straight to cooking.

Here are some tips on making sure healthy and quick lunches are easily accessible:

  1. Whenever you prepare veggies, whether it's roasting, grating or cutting, double it and store them in an airtight container in the fridge. 
  2. Always have quality oils, sauerkrauts and other goodies like hummus and salsa on hand.
  3. Have greens on hand... ALWAYS. I like to have mixed greens, baby spinach or arugula in my fridge at all times.
  4. Double the amount of protein like meats or beans whenever you're cooking. This takes away from 'prepping' to actually just making more while you've already planned on cooking. I like to cook healthy organic sausages in double quantities for lunches and quick snacks for the kids. 
  5. Keep a variety of raw nuts or seeds in your pantry to throw on top of whatever you're making for added protein and a source of healthy fat.
  6. Keep avocados on hand. They are a great source of healthy fats that help to keep you fuller longer.

These simple tricks make it super easy for me to throw a bowl together in a hurry. AND there's little prep time involved. I don't like prepping so I do everything in my power to find ways around it. "high five"
