Even though things have been busy (or perhaps because they have been) I have really tried to whip up some healthy, convenient meals. Many have not been successes but the below are winners!
I found a broccoli salad that looked just like one we have gotten at whole foods (and then thoroughly enjoyed and then complained about the price). There’s some chopping involved but once you put the work in this salad keeps for days and is a great main or side. I used walnuts and doubled the amount because this was our main dish on Monday. I also used greek yogurt instead of mayo- delicious and super healthy:)
I think I may have posted the Mediterranean Quinoa Bowl before but I have come back to it after several months and am not disappointed. Really easy to throw together and tons of protein.
I made two batches of these Slow Cooker Black Beans and have stored most away for future use. I cannot tell you how many 15 ounce cans of black beans I bought this year and I’m excited to have these tasty morsels laid away as an option instead. I also used them to make several freezer batches of these enchiladas. I don’t think our family would have survived this month without the preserving magic of a freezer:)
