Yep, non-recipe. I’ve been super busy lately and struggling to find time to cook. Definitely no time for fancy recipes and thus I’ve been slacking on my blogging and specifically recipes of the week. So today I bring you the first in a several part installment we’ll call non-recipe of the week.
Before I begin I want to specifically call out the fact that I am not in any way subsidized by any company, I just happen to like Trader Joe’s for healthy grab and go options.
My go-to quick lunch as of late has been all Trader Joe’s. At the start of the week I put 1 cup tri-color quinoa + 1 cup lentils + a chicken bullion cube (switch to vegetable bullion if you are vegan or vegetarian) + 3 cups water in my rice cooker. I let that cook in the morning and it’s good for about a week. Please note what a great protein source this is for my gluten free vegans and vegetarian friends 🙂
When it’s time to eat I throw some asparagus spears in the microwave as I heat up the chicken on my stove. Add the quinoa and lentil mix (put a dab of coconut oil on this and the asparagus for some healthy fats) and you have a delicious, quick and easy protein packed, well rounded meal!
