It’s almost December, the season synonymous with healthy eating. Wait, that’s not right.
In fact, it’s a lot harder to eat well this time of year. Despite our best intentions junk food calls out to us even more as the holidays approach. We finished our Thanksgiving leftovers on Friday and are back to a mostly empty fridge. As much as I love Thanksgiving leftovers I really wanted to get back to healthy meals.
In an effort to avoid unhealthy foods I’ll call upon soups and casseroles that are warm, comforting and healthy.
As much as I would love a veggie tofu scramble I need to stick to quick meals during the week.
- Blueberry Oatmeal
- Banana Bread
- Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal or Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Rice
- SoyNut Butter and Banana Sandwich
I rely on leftovers for easy lunches during the week. My kids eat packed lunches with sandwiches and fruit plus a few other items that they get to help pick.
- Leftover Minestrone Soup
- Baked Potatoes made in my Instant Pot
- Veggie Burrito using whatever is available
I’m willing to spend a little more time cooking this week because I’m really wanting to eat well. I’m not sure if it was all of the over indulgence at Thanksgiving (I’m looking at you pecan pie) but I’m craving veggies!
- Minestrone Soup
- Veggie Pad Thai
- Quinoa Lentil Salad (this is a hearty salad)
- Crock Pot Potato Soup with extra veggies like broccoli, peas and green beans.
- Oil-Free Fried Rice or Mushroom and Broccoli Stir Fry
