Another Wednesday…another new recipe for you to try 🙂
It’s getting cold outside and I am tired of eating cold salads, so I decided to make something warm to have for lunches! Casseroles are my favorite because they are super easy and great for meal planning. This one has an Italian twist!
So, you may be asking the same question I have…what exactly is a Buddha bowl? Well, I did a little research and basically, it’s just a trend where you create beautiful looking bowls that aren’t only pleasant to look at, but also really good for you too!
From what I gather the only reason it’s called a “Buddha” bowl is that there is a “balance” – whether that is a color balance or a nutritional balance. Either way, these babies are super easy to make, delicious, and a perfect idea for meal prepping!
Meal planning/prep doesn’t need to be complicated. You don’t need any fancy recipes and it doesn’t have to take a long time. When I am really busy and don’t have a whole lot of time to devote to meal prep this is my go to plan!
If you’re on any type of healthy eating plan there probably isn’t a whole lot of Italian food in your life. But what happens if that is all you really want? Well, you have two options…suck it up 🙂 OR try to figure out how to make “healthier” Italian food. Last week I went on the search for just that and came across Delish’s recipe “Best Cauliflower Baked Ziti.”
Lately, meal prep has been the only reason I am sticking with my healthy eating plan! If I go to the effort of meal planning/prep and know that there is something good for me to eat I find it way easier to resist temptation!
I have been on an egg kick and was looking for a different way to prepare them. I had pretty much exhausted myself with the Mini Egg Frittatas! While still good, I wanted to change up my egg game. So I researched other ways to make eggs in bulk and many recipes for sheet pan eggs came up. The idea behind these recipes is to turn the eggs into breakfast sandwiches. Well, bread and I haven’t really been friends over the past few years, so I thought why not just turn them into omelets!
