One of my favorite snacks is Gluten Free Rice Chex with chocolate almond milk.
I have a new obsession with overnight oats!!
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 banana, cut up
I’m in breakfast heaven.
SO GOOD O_o
Hey Tumblr loves :)
My life has gotten considerably busier lately, which means that I haven’t been spending a lot of time preparing meals that are good for me.
I have a 9 to 5 job, which means that I usually eat breakfast, lunch, and daytime snacks at work.
After work I have various evening commitments and activities, which means I get home late and end up eating toast or something else that is “easy.”
I want to start preparing food over the weekend, so that I can eat it all week.
One meal that I’ve made recently that I LOVED, was mini bell peppers stuffed with quinoa and chicken. I put them in a tupperware and had them for lunch for multiple days.
I need more ideas for what to cook over the weekend!
What kinds of foods keep well? What kinds of meals re-heat well?
I’m also going to try overnight oats for breakfast - do y’all have any other ideas for breakfasts I can prepare ahead of time?
I’m going to pretend like I know how to cook and make some quinoa-stuffed mini bell peppers tonight.
Fingers crossed it goes well.
I’m so stoked. :)
IT IS AMAZING
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT
It is so simple and so delicious.
Here it is:
Garlic Chicken Stir-Fry with Quinoa, Peppers and Basil
- 1 cup Trader Joe’s Organic Quinoa prepared with chicken stock according to package directions
- 2 cups Trader Joe’s Chicken Broth
- 1 1/2 pounds Trader Joe’s Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Tenders
- 4 tablespoons Trader Joe’s Garlic Flavored Olive Oil
- 1 small onion, thinly sliced
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
- 5 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
- 20 leaves fresh sweet basil, julienne
- Grated parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper to taste
Cut chicken into one inch pieces. Heat large nonstick skillet over high heat and add the oil. Add chicken and saute for 5 minutes or until golden brown. Add onions, peppers, and saute for one or two more minutes. Add garlic and saute until peppers become slightly limp, but still bright, about one to two minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from heat. Add basil and quinoa. Toss until basil wilts and garnish with parmesan cheese. Serves four.
(Or serves one person for multiple days, as in my case!)
This is my new favorite thing of life.
Its function is more of a “food diary” for me, rather than calories counting, because I’ve realized that I have been making some not-so-intuitive food choices lately.
I won’t be posting intakes or net calories, but if anyone is interested in being my friend on the app, message me privately!
Here’s to healthier, more intuitive eating!
