When you need a quick meal... vegan and non-vegan versions. It seems to me that most Americans think of the meat as the main part of the meal and the veggies are the "side" dish... they are kind of an afterthought on meal planning. What if we reversed our thinking? The veggies/fruit/grains/plant based protein is the main thing. What if we aimed to make our plates as colorful as possible (with natural organic produce)? Well- we would have a lot less heart disease and obesity and other diseases and ailments. We would feel less sluggish and our carbon footprint would start to shrink. This is one of my "in a rush," "eat on a paper plate" (sorry carbon footprint).... "forget mindful eating," because I need to run kind of meal. And then one for my daughter, who doesn't quite appreciate all of the colors yet. Precooked Brown and Red rice with Chia and Kale (#costcofind), local hummus, sugar snap peas, tomato, blackberries, Castelvetrano olives (my fave), and vegan Monterrey jack by @daiyafoods. The carnivore version has a precooked chicken skewer (#costcofind).
I love to cook. Sometimes this feed gets all fancy and complicated, but feeding your family doesn't need to be either of those. Find healthy quick options for yourself when you know there is a short window of cooking time. Eat all of the colors and flavors. And take it easy on yourself and others... #eatthecolorsdaily #rainbowplate #quickeasymeals #feedthefamily #busylifecalmwife #momsecrets #costcoforthewin
