15-Minute Meal Prep Dinner: Chickpea Pasta Lo Mein

15-Minute Meal Prep Dinner: Chickpea Pasta Lo Mein

This meal prep costs just $1.50 to $1.88 per meal for 8-10 meals, which is an incredible bargain. The fiber and protein in the chickpea pasta, plus the fat from the oil in the sauce helps keep me full for hours. This meal prep is also filled with veggies and is completely meatless - perfect for my Meatless Monday people! If you want some bonus protein, chicken and even eggs (scrambled or soft-boiled) would work really well in this veggie-packed lo mein. I can tell that I’m going to add this meal prep lo mein to my go-to list of recipes!

3-Minute Meal Prep Breakfast: Overnight Oats

3-Minute Meal Prep Breakfast: Overnight Oats

Overnight oats are my go-to breakfast, because they are: 1. Easy to prepare before bed. 2. Tasty enough to eat every morning. 3. Super customizable and creamy. I like making 2 batches on Sunday night, then bringing both jars to work on Monday morning. My absolute favorite way to eat them is with powdered peanut butter, chocolate chips, and a fresh banana sliced in. It tastes like dessert, and keeps me full and satiated until lunch. Try these oats, you won’t regret it!

Green Machine Smoothie

Green Machine Smoothie

I know it’s technically winter. But, here in California (well, some parts) it is sunshine and springtime outside. All this good weather gave me a HUGE craving for a citrusy, bright, crisp smoothie. You know the kind you drink and feel proud that you’re doing something good for your body. A self-love smoothie, if you will. This recipe is TOTALLY a self-love smoothie! It is packed with spinach (that’s good for you), tangerines (hella good for you), mango (real good for you), and Greek yogurt (freakin’ good for you). But, more importantly, it tastes really good.

Lemony Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables

Lemony Quinoa with Roasted Vegetables

This lemony quinoa recipe is my go-to when I need to clean out my fridge! I gather up all of my fresh vegetables that are just on the verge of going bad and roast them up. While they're cooking, I rinse my quinoa and cook it until it's light and fluffy. While the quinoa is fluffifying (no, this is not a word; yes, I will continue to use it) I whisk up the super fresh citrus dressing that makes this dish great. I like to garnish with basil, feta, and thin, wispy ribbons of fresh spinach, but of course you can add whatever you want.

Savory Sweet Potato Spinach Buddha Bowl

Savory Sweet Potato Spinach Buddha Bowl

This is not the meal I intended to make. I had my sights set on a quinoa, chickpea, spinach bowl with a tangy, citrus, olive oil dressing. As I started to cook (aka pulled out a pot), I realized I didn't buy quinoa. Okay, no worries, can totally do without it - I'll just switch it to a hearty sweet potato black bean bowl. Started to get going on that (aka grabbed the can of black beans), when I realized that the kitchen I'm using doesn't have a can opener... slightly bigger problem. I considered taking a stab at opening the can with a knife, but visions of slicing my hand open quickly took me in a different direction.
