If you read my I Will in 2018 post, you know that I’m trying to eat healthier. I love to plan out meals and cook them, but I don’t often have the time to make elaborate dishes. These three meals are some of my favorites, and they’re so easy to prepare!
Breakfast: Smoothie Bowl
Smoothie bowls aren’t just aesthetically pleasing, they’re delicious as well. I blend one acai packet, one cup of frozen strawberries, and a banana until it’s combined, then add chopped strawberries, granola, and maple syrup on top. You can sub in whatever frozen fruit you’d like to change up the flavor!
Lunch: Quinoa Salad
You can’t see the quinoa in this picture, but I promise it’s there! Cook one serving of quinoa according to the directions on the package, then top it with lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese, and your favorite dressing. I love it with red wine vinaigrette.
Dinner: Pasta with Pesto and Feta
This may not look pretty, but boy is it delicious! First prepare a serving of gluten free pasta – I like the brown rice rotini from Trader Joes. Next toss it with a few spoonfuls of pesto and sprinkle feta cheese on top! I realize I’m mixing my countries with the feta and the pesto, but it’s so good. I also like to top it with a little leftover chicken or pork if we have some in the fridge.
These are a few of my favorite recipes, but I definitely am not this successful with healthy eating every day. 😅🙈 It’s important to treat yourself once in a while, and don’t feel bad about it when you do! There’s nothing wrong with the occasional cinnamon roll or piece of pizza.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
