I really think hot breakfast porridge is my favorite way to start the day. They just make me feel warm and cozy inside. My go to right now, obviously, is the Quinoa. I love the nutty flavor. Quinoa rich in protein and keeps me full longer as well.
A great start to a busy day. Quinoa porridge, grade B maple syrup, milk, and raspberries.
I did not have the energy this morning to make a proper lunch, and we are low on leftovers. Some days I snack throughout the day at work. With a busy client schedule, I typically work through lunch. So, it's easier for me to eat small amounts throughout the work day instead of sitting down to a bigger lunch that I have to scarf down between clients.
Pretty simple, and quick, grab bag today: Organic Apple, Organic Cheese Stick, Buffalo Meat Stick, and some Roasted Pumpkin Seeds.
Oh yeah, definitely hungry when I got home. I had just enough leftover turkey soup for a nice warm snack.
Had an "Oh No!" Moment this afternoon when I realized I had not planned ahead for dinner. We had M2's teacher conference this evening at 6:00. Making it hard to plan and make dinner without it being super late. Before we left I made a quick Corn and Black Bean Salad.
1 can Organic Black Beans
1 can Organic, non GMO Corn
1 Bellpepper, Chopped
1/2 cup Chopped Red Onion
1/2 cup Packed Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1/4 cup Fresh Squeezed Lime Jiuce
2 TBSP Olive Oil
1 Tbsp Raw, Unflitered Honey
1/2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Salt
Mix all ingredients together and let chill for at least an hour.
Quick weeknight dinner idea…Venison Taco Sliders.
Ground meat is a quick fix for busy nights. When I am in a real rush, I will throw in the frozen meat and defrost and cook at the same time at a low temperature. Making sure to break it apart every couple of minutes.
I found these cute mini organic corn tortilla. I originally got them for a casserole I make on occasion, but I was able to pull just enough out from the frozen package, and warm them on the stove.
I cut up some different toppings so everyone could make their own mini tacos. Perfect size for the girls, and fun for them.
