Hey guys!! Happy Friday!! I am off to the northeast today for my cousin’s wedding this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited!! But, I couldn’t leave you without showing you some of my favorite eats from lately!
I am so grateful for the downtime recently that allows me to spend lots of time in my kitchen. I truly enjoy crafting up new recipes and taste-testing along the way. Don’t get me wrong, I love a simple, hassle free meal at the end of a long day too.
Kale salads galore! I just can’t get over the beauty of a dark green kale salad with chopped red cabbage. The color combination is lovely while the texture is key! I love lots of textures in a salad and both of these ingredients make the salad crunchy and super filling.
Tuna. I love tuna, canned or fresh. Since I don’t eat meat, it is a great way for me to get protein into a meal and feel satisfied. It has been on sale at my grocery store lately too so that is always a plus! This piece was peppered on the edges, which gave it tons of flavor. This large piece was under $10 and fed me and my husband for 2 meals each. That is a pretty good deal if you ask me! I just simply grill it on my indoor grilling pan for about 2 minutes on each side and it is done!
Stuffed acorn squash. Now that it is fall (well, not quite in Dallas), I am loving squash, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes even more than usual. I love cutting an acorn squash in half and roasting it in the oven, while preparing some quinoa and sauteing whatever veggies I have on hand. I then layer the quinoa and veggies (you could top with cheese too) and top it with homemade guacamole (can’t get enough!).
For a quick, healthy lunch lately I have been making lettuce wraps with ingredients I have in my fridge. These had roasted tofu, beets, avocado, and corn. Sooo good!
These ones had tofu, beets, avocado and quinoa for a little more staying power. Did I mentioned I am obsessed with beets right now? A little sea salt and I could eat them until my fingers were pink. 😉
See, I told you I’m obsessed. Homemade guacamole goes with everything too! 🙂
