How I Put the Healthy into my Meals

When it comes it comes to how I eat, I want it to be healthy…and easy. Oh easy! Because while I do love to cook, I don’t want my days to revolved around prepping and cooking what I’m going to eat. I’m fortunate enough to not have any dietary restricitons in what I eat, but I also try to NOT eat meals made up of gummy bears. Because, I’m an adult…

I’ve gotten the planning of my meals down pat, and usually, they are made up from staples that I keep on hand all the time. When I make up the menu, I usually focus on breakfast and dinner because for whatever reason, lunch just gets the shaft when to planning. Also, I apparently have this rule about only cooking for two meals…not three.

 

MY HEALTHY, EASY BREAKFAST

LOCATION   | Foggy land. Not totally present, but awake enough to scramble some eggs at my stove.
WHAT I EAT | EGGS! And coffee.

It’s all about the eggs! For whatever reason, I have never gotten tired of eggs. And while I love a good dippy egg*, my favorite way to eat them is a quick and easy breakfast burrito. Scrambled eggs, shredded sharp cheddar cheese and salsa all wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

*I am from PA and we call our over easy eggs ‘dippy eggs‘. You know, because you dip your toast in your egg…..yeah, now you get it!

 

MY HEALTHY, EASY LUNCH

LOCATION   | About to head out the door, and totally have zero time to cook anything!
WHAT I EAT | Healthy Choice® Power Bowls + smartwater

Remember when I said I’ll only cook for two meals, not three. Truth!!  But honestly, lunch is at the same time that I am about to hop in the car to go pick up my boys from preschool. So I could step away from the article or post I was working on early, in order to cook myself a meal, or I could continue to do what I’ve been doing lately, which is grab a Healthy Choice® Power Bowls and smartwater.

Because it’s healthy, each Healthy Choice® Power Bowl are made with an intentional balance of vegetables, proteins, and whole grains. And easy; I didn’t cook it. It took the microwave four minutes to deliver this combination of bold flavors and simple ingredients into my hands. The photos show me with the Cuban-Inspired Pork Bowl. I loved the flavor the whole bowl has and those peppers!

Also, because coffee isn’t water, and I need to drink water to stay healthy, I grab a smartwater to go with my meal. smartwater is vapor-distilled for purity, inspired by the clouds, and has just the right amount of electrolytes for a uniquely clean taste. Also, I’m a sucker for anything sparkling, and the sparkling smartwater is also delicious!

And bonus! You can earn .75 cash back when you purchase Healthy Choice® Power Bowls at Walmart (any variety – any size).

 

MY HEALTHY, EASY DINNER

LOCATION   | Tired. The work-at-home mom gig and the twenty-seven trips up and down the stairs to grab the needed items for my kiddos to take their naps that afternoon wore me out.
WHAT I EAT |  A one pan sausage and veggie dinner.

One of my favorite ways to cook a healthy, easy dinner is by using a baking sheet to roast all of the ingredients. It requires little prepping, the cooking is all done at once, and it’s always a big hit! A favorite one pan recipe is combining smoked sausage, brussel sprouts, baby potatoes and apples with ranch seasonings, olive oil and salt. Cook at 400 degrees until the potatoes are soft, about 20 minutes.

  • I’ve legit never heard them called “dippy eggs” haha
    These power bowls look so delicious and easy!!!! <3 thanks for sharing!

    • Abi

      Ahaha! It’s an Amish term. I had to look it up after the first time I was called out at a restaurant for asking for ‘dippy eggs’. It makes perfect sense to me=)

  • Microwavable and delicious?!? I’m going to have to try those power bowls.

    • Abi

      I really liked the Cuban-Inspired Pork bowl!! My husband ate the Korean Beef, and said it WAS spicy! So if you like a kick.. that’s the one for you!

  • These look quite good!

  • Jared

    The Korean Beef is spicy, but in a very flavorful way – the kind of spice I like – highly recommend!

  • This is so me! I love to eat healthy, but I want to put zero work into it (or a ton of money). It usually means I’m eating 3 oatmeal creme pies for breakfast because I ran out of other fast options and don’t have time to make oatmeal or eggs or something. Thanks for the tips and the recipe!

    • Abi

      Oatmeal creme pies are so good!! And oatmeal is healthy, right??! =) Healthy Choice has a chicken sausage + barley bowl too. It wasn’t at my store when I went, but it looks delicious too!

  • You have such a great routine! Eggs are definitely my go-to breakfast too!

    • Abi

      They really are the thing I end up eating the most!

  • Kalyn

    Yum! I’ll have to try these when we move back to America. Love the photos for the post 🙂

    • Abi

      Thanks girl!! =) But only if you move back close to me!! We’ve been apart for to long!

  • Those power bowls look SO good! I need to try them like now.

    • Abi

      I still haven’t tried the chicken sausage + barley, but it looks good as well!

  • I never heard of dippy eggs until I went and spent the day with a good friend. Her 2 year old daughter requested dippy eggs. I wouldn’t have touched that at her age but will now!

    • Abi

      Oh I LOVE them! But my kiddos usually eat scrambled too. I don’t know that they would like ‘dippy eggs’ but it would be really good for them if they did!
