I have figured out the easiest way to keep on the healthy eating track and it starts and ends with the leftover. I think leftovers may get a bad wrap but when "re-used" in alternative ways, you can create another healthy meal without eating the same thing over and over again.
On Tuesday I made a "Yam Bake" and stored the leftovers in a container for lunch the next day. For lunch, I just stuck some in a wrap along with a bit of cheese and heated it up in the micro at work. That night, I made the Quinoa burger and mixed the remaining Yammy leftovers in the stir fried greens I added to the burger (see all this in the last two posts).
Last night, however, I was in a rush form one thing to another and thought I would try Orzo for the first time. I would combine Orzo with my favorite leafy greens (swiss chard, kale, and spinach), add a few brussel sprouts with Parmesan cheese, and one quinoa burger pattie (heated up). This entire dinner took 8 minutes! Who says that eating healthy has to take a long time to cook?
Here's how it went....
