Super Simple Lunch
Let's go ahead and start this with saying.. I am a TERRIBLE cook, but I am really creative. I like to pride myself on taking pre-made products and making them a bit more nutrient dense without having to do a lot.
So one of my go-to super simple lunches is Fried Rice loaded with extra veggies. You can totally do this with any brands but these are just what happen to be easy for me to find. The Recipe Below makes 2 Servings for me. Lunch for today and tomorrow.
Here's what you will need:
- 1 Bag Frozen Broccoli
- Frozen Fried Rice
- 1 TBS Low Sodium Soy Sauce
- 1/2 Zucchini
- 1/2 Yellow Squash
- 1/2 Bell pepper
- 1 Egg
1 TBS Olive Oil
I found the most delish pre-made frozen fried rice at Costco. It's incredibly simple and all you have to do is pop it in the microwave for 3 minutes.
So while the rice is "cooking" in the microwave, I saute my Zucchini, Yellow Squash, and Bell Pepper in about a tablespoon of olive oil.
As soon as the veggies are cooked how you like crack the egg and scramble it in the same pan. Feel free to add an extra egg for more protein.
I pour the microwaved rice into the same pan and sauté everything with a splash of Low Sodium Soy Sauce for about a minute.
The Steamed Broccoli is just a side of extra veggies. PS if you have not tried the Everything But the Bagel seasoning on your broccoli, you are missing out!
Most bags of steamed broccoli are about 3 servings. I personally just use half for each meal. Extra Veggies never hurt right?
Oh, and I love these meal prep containers for leftovers.
So really, it's incredibly simple. Depending on the brands you choose you should be getting about
17 Grams of Protein
8 Grams of Fiber
(remember this makes about 2 servings for me)
P.S. I am in no way a nutrition expert, this just happens to be delish and packed with veggies. Enjoy!
