My go-to healthy lunch

Today so many of us have crazy busy schedules and we don’t always have time to make a healthy meal. I wanted to share a quick and easy meal that has been my go to for months now and I love it! I first saw this recipe on one of Rochelle Fox’s vlogs where she shared what she eats in a day. Because the recipe is simple and basic over time I have played around with adding different ingredients.  I’ll share some alternate options you can throw in based on what I’ve experimented with and liked.

Ingredients:

Frozen vegetables, the serving size is completely up to you. I usually throw in about a handful or two depending on how hungry I am. I like the organic brand from Whole Foods, they always have a variety of mixed vegetables.

1 egg, if you are vegan or don’t like eggs you can substitute this with tofu

Spoonful of marina sauce or salsa. Any type of sauce you like adds that extra flavor

Handful of spinach or greens

Pinch of pink Himalayan salt

As you can see there isn’t a strict portion guideline with this recipe. Depending on what I am in the mood for or what I have around the kitchen that day I throw in.

Begin by heating up the frozen veggies on a pan around medium heat, option to cover the pan.

As the veggies are cooking on one pan, cook your egg any way you like on another pan. I love to add a bit of curry into my scrambled eggs. If you’ve seen the movie A Hundred Foot Journey than you may remember the part when the main character Hassan Kadam is making an omelet to impress Madame Mallory, played by Helen Mirren. To add a unique flavor to the omelet he adds curry. After watching this scene I had to try it out myself and ever since then I have begun adding a pinch of curry into my scrambled eggs =o)

Return back to the cooking veggies, pour out any excess water that may have melted in the pan. Add a spoonful of which ever sauce you prefer and mix it in. I usually let the veggies simmer at this point so not to over boil them.

Grab a bowl and lay your spinach or greens of choice at the bottom of the bowl.

Once the veggies are done pour them on top of the bed of spinach.

Add your egg on top of the veggies.

Sprinkle a little pink Himalayan salt on top or any other spice or garnish you like.

And enjoy!

  3. This looks SO yummy. And it’s exactly my style of cooking/food! I’m always trying to find meals and easy ways to get more veggies in my diet, and this is the perfect recipe for that. I also like that it’s not a lot of prep. Ben is going to love this too! We might have to make this one of our dinners this week!
