Meatless Monday “Sausage” Meal prep


I do my absolute best to incorporate meatless meals into my meal rotation. Lightlife has these plant based spicy Italian sausage that are so so yummy on really any stir fry dish! 🥰


Ingredients (2 servings):

2 cups brown rice
2 cups spinach
2 cups broccoli
Oregano
Paprika
Garlic Salt

Salad Kit Wrap

PART 2 of YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE A LOT OF TIME TO EAT CLEAN 😂 I got some fantastic feedback on my last post; lots of us agree, we don’t have endless amounts of time to make extravagant meals, so I thought I would share another ~*life hack*~ for quick and healthy lunches! 😋

This is, essentially, a two ingredient lunch, Mission Foods whole wheat carb balance wrap, and a Costco salad kit! The salad kit had spinach, bacon bits, tomato’s, shredded cheese, hard boiled eggs, and a balsamic dressing! 🥗 You are obviously welcome to add any other ingredients you want such as avocado, cucumber, shredded carrots, red onion, etc. to make it your own!🥕

Salad kit + Wrap = THE EASIEST lunch EVER 😊

10 Minute Trader Joes Risotto

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SPEND HOURS ON MEALS TO HAVE HEALTHY AND SUSTAINABLE MEALS 🎉 Did you hear that??? 😂

I see lots and lots of posts on Instagram advertising super ~eAsY~ recipes, ONLY 45 MINUTES!! ⏰ Sometimes I have that kind of time, I really love cooking, but sometimes I only have 10 minutes! This super easy twist on a frozen Trader Joe’s meal is a great option for those super busy days! 😊


Ingredients:

1 frozen package Trader Joe’s mushroom risotto
1 cup shredded chicken breast (I bought a rotisserie chicken from Costco and picked the chicken right off)
2 cups steamed broccoli
1 tbsp rosemary
1 tbsp oregano
Salt and Pepper to taste

Empty the Fridge Stuffed Peppers

I want to apologize right off the bat because there is no real recipe for these stuffed peppers. 🌶 Occasionally, I will sift through my fridge for veggies that are starting to go bad.

Today I found half a yellow onion, spinach, arugula, green onion, and shredded carrots. 🥕 I threw all those in a pan to sauté with some olive oil and decided I wanted to add more veggies. I grabbed more spinach and this pepper and came up with the idea to stuff the peppers. I added brown rice and Fillo’s Mexican mayocoba beans to give it some substance, I stuffed the peppers and baked them at 375 F for 10 minutes! 😋 I topped the peppers with a pinch of shredded cheese and boom! A delicious dinner ☀️
