One Saturday a few weeks ago, I needed a protein packed bite to eat right after my workout but was short on time since I needed to be at the grocery store within the hour. So what’s a culinary health resource foodie to do?!?!?
Since I was at the end of the week, there were only small amounts of my weekly haul of kale, spinach, green onions, and fresh herbs left over in the fridge crisper unused from the week’s meals.
Now I have posted previously on how to make a delicious ‘green’ omelette, but this is just a reminder that when you’re bored with the hum-drum of scrambled, fried, and/or boiled eggs, it’s always a great idea to use what you have on hand in the fridge to make something protein rich, folded(lol!), and tasty!
And what delicious warm beverage do I sip in the mornings while feasting on my breakfast? Why a cup of DELICIOUS coffee of course! But not just any cup of coffee, my Bio Coffee! Bio Coffee is the ONLY true alkaline coffee on the shelves today with a full serving of vegetables and wheatgrass! Ok, a bit much for your usual morning java? Seems to good to be true? A 'healthy' coffee with all this goodness and mercy couldn't possibly taste good, right?
This satisfying vitamin-rich blend reminds me of a favorite cappuccino mix from a certain company with an 'international' name. It's truly an amazing treat that my hubby and I enjoy literally every morning. The aroma is so enticing that you have to indulge in a cup! No worries if you need it to be a tad bit sweeter, simply add a tablespoon of your favorite plant based creamer and WHOLA!
So while you're reducing food waste by making my Easy Refrigerator Greens Omelette, DON'T FORGET get your cup of culinary health morning joe!
What are some dishes you create from left over items in your fridge? Let me know in the comments below!
Ever been in the produce section of the grocery store, and while picking up a package of your favorite salad blend you notice that container of broccoli shreds? You know, it resembles the bag of shredded cabbage and carrots for a make-quick coleslaw, but it's green?
Well I've grabbed a bag here and there, usually when it's warmer out though. I'll mix it with a zesty garlic dressing and toss in some grilled shrimp for a light and delicious quick summer dinner. But what else could I use it for? I mean it's broccoli for crying out loud! Accompanied with nutrient rich carrots and purple cabbage. It's a package full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber goodness and mercy! What else would make it sing as a side or a main?
Enter Broccoli Slaw & Rice Noodle Stir-fry!
What an absolute genius way to make this convenient crisp and crunchy veggie mix sing! I mean, in 15 minutes or less this light and healthy dish comes together with great texture and Asian flare! Kicking it up a notch and stepping outside-of-the box, I opt for the rice 'noodle' as opposed to the more traditional long or short rice grain. Add your choice of grilled, baked, or broiled protein such as chicken, tofu, and/or seafood, and you're set for a one pan experience! However, my preference is having it alone as a noodle bowl with the addition of only a splash of sriracha.
I say an 'additional' splash of sriracha because the recipe calls for my ACAOF Stir-fry Sauce to be mixed in the dish which includes the spicy condiment. Now, feel free to use your favorite store bought sauce, I just love this sauce because I know exactly what's in it and don't have to worry about the extra ingredients I don't need.
ACAOF Stir-fry Sauce
It's simple, just mix together:
This sauce brings the dish together in such a delicious way, it's no wonder I chose to devour it all by itself!
How would you serve this dish? Are you solo, or would you top it?
Remember, SHARING is caring!
