If I don’t prep my lunches, then I don’t eat well. My body is not nourished because I’m not eating anything that is good for me.
Anyone like cooked mushrooms like I do or is it just me?
Tips and Tricks:
I made a rice and quinoa mixture from Aldi’s as my grain. So simple and yummy! I had some left over from my prepping so I gave some to my Hubby for his soup that he was eating. He loved the rice/quinoa mixture. However you can use any grain you have at your house.
You can customize the recipe. I used zucchini, bell peppers, mushrooms, and onions. You could use asparagus, carrots, or broccoli.
I used 21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joe’s as the seasoning. You could use your favorite seasoning blend or Italian seasoning instead of the 21 Seasoning salute.
I made Tahini dressing to go over my bowl once I warmed it up at school. Yummy! You can use the dressing or your favorite dressing.
