Just a little blerp on what real meals look like on the fly. Real wholesome and nourishing ingredients, real simple, and really delicious. Many recipes take a lot of time and effort to shop, prep and complete numerous steps. Obviously that is not conducive to most of our busy lifestyles. What does good nutrition look like on a daily basis? What types of healthy meals can be thrown together quickly with staples you have stocked in your fridge, freezer and pantry; or a quick trip to the store? Lunch the other day:
Prep time: 3 minutes
Cook time: 7 minutes
Total time: 10 minutes!
Trader joes salmon burger (frozen)
Red pepper cut in 1″ chunks
Zuchini sliced and cut in halves
Olive oil for pan
Crumbled gorgonzola and fresh ground pepper to taste
For the aioli (per serving): 1Tbsp mayonnaise, 1 tsp lemon juice, dash of ground pepper, one sprig of dill chopped
Heat two pans with olive oil. Add salmon burgers to one and veggies to the other. Cook burgers about 3 minutes on each side while stir frying veggies. Mix aloe. Plate burgers and veggies. Top burgers with aioli. Enjoy!
Notes: I love stocking frozen protein sources for a quick meal. Other good options are crab cakes, veggie burgers, chicken breasts, turkey burgers, bison burgers, falafel. Herb gardens are a quick way to flavor up most meals. See Grow Your Health: Planting a Summer Herb Garden for tips on how.
