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:
- Whenever you prepare veggies, whether it's roasting, grating or cutting, double it and store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
- Always have quality oils, sauerkrauts and other goodies like hummus and salsa on hand.
- Have greens on hand... ALWAYS. I like to have mixed greens, baby spinach or arugula in my fridge at all times.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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"
