Vegetable Fried Rice

In addition to being  full of vegetables, this dish is one of my favorites because it can be made from leftovers and it cooks up in about 20 minutes.

  • rice
  • riced cauliflower
  • vegetables of your choicing (peppers, onions, mushrooms, carrots, squash, zucchini, broccoli, green onions, etc)
  • soy sauce (be sure its gluten free)
  • 2 eggs

Gather assortment of veggies of your choice (I used bell peppers, broccoli, mushrooms, squash, and green onion). Chop and salute in EVOO for about 15 minutes.

Saute vegetables

Add cooked rice and a bag of “riced cauliflower”.

Scramble egg in “rice valley”

Make a valley in the middle, scramble 1-2 eggs. Stir everything together while splashing in some soy sauce. When I feel like adding meat, I sometimes sauce the veggies with bacon for added flavor.

Eating healthy doesn’t  have to be complicated. Here are some simple ideas for your weekend to get you started on a healthy week, because I love keeping it simple, full of color, and inexpensive.

Easy Meal prep

MAY_8295Our garden was overflowing with green beans and purple & red potatos. We boiled the green beans & potatoes for dinner and pulled out about half for some easy lunches. White it was cooking, we cooked up a cup of red quinoa and sauteed some onions and garilc. Toss it all together and top with some Curry sauce from Trader Joe’s and we’re good for the week. This Trader Joe’s yellow curry makes even the most ordinary meals, extraordinary.MAY_8325MAY_8326 copy

Sausage & Pasta

A great dinner doesn’t always have to be fancy. Since having kids I’ve found some of our best meals are the ones that take very little prep. We were out of town all weekend and the kitchen was looking a little sparse. 20 minutes after getting home, dinner was ready and on the table.FEB_4043

  • Slice and saute squash in olive oil (about 15mins)
  • While squash is sauteing, boil gluten free pasta
  • Cut up (precooked) sausage and toss in with the squash and allow to heat through.
  • Drain noodles and mix all together with salt, pepper, and oregano.FEB_4045
