It’s been a busy week around here. While I definitely prefer being busy over being bored, I’ve had less time in the kitchen this week than I’d like to come up with any sort of creative meal ideas.
After dealing with my fair share of rushed meals, however, I think I can firmly attest to the fact that healthy meals are just as fast– if not faster— than traditional “fast food.”
It’s also nice to NOT be in a food coma with deadlines looming over your head.
Un-pictured: water, probiotics, black tea
An entire box of organic strawberries. (Whole Foods had a good sale on them this weekend, so I’ve stocked up!)
Fresh fruit is the ultimate “fast food.” Just rinse and eat!
Un-Pictured: 1 teaspoon cod liver oil (something new I’m trying… it’s not as gross as it sounds.)
Homemade Egg Salad–> made with steamed eggs (I steamed a bunch this weekend, so they’d be ready for a quick meal), goat’s milk yogurt, Dijon mustard and diced cucumbers. Served in fresh romaine leaves!
Un-pictured: Raw red pepper slices– I’ve been eating an entire bell pepper while prepping dinner lately.
Normally, I like to have at least two courses at dinner–> usually a large salad, plus a side of cooked veggies and/or protein. Last night, I combined them into one big bowl, and it was one of the best things I’ve eaten in a long time! Sauteed mushrooms, cooked in a bit of grass-fed butter and garlic, plus wilted spinach over a bed of mixed greens… with a generous topping of raw goat feta, lemon juice and mustard. So good.
Dark chocolate! I was proud of my portion control– I managed to only eat half a bar. 😉
What are YOU eating this week? Any favorite “fast” meal ideas to share?
