I don't have a whole lot of time to cook, so I end up just cooking a big batch of veggies and eating over a few days.
1. Roasted Veggies - Pick some of your favorite veggies - carrots, broccoli, peppers, brussel sprouts, squash, garlic, onions, any root vegetable (potatoes, beets, etc.) and toss them in a bowl with a little olive oil and any seasoning you choose (oregano, thyme, cumin, red pepper, or just plain) and arrange it on a cookie sheet. Roast it in the oven on 425° until browned and slightly soft in the middle. Enjoy!
2. Asian Style Steamed Veggies - Again, choose your favorite veggies (not potatoes) and put them in a steamer until slightly soft in the middle (I like my veggies a little crunchy, it's up to you). For the sauce, mix lite soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, minced fresh ginger, minced garlic, sesame seeds and chopped scallions together and pour a little over the veggies. Delicious!
I usually cook a batch of brown rice or bulgar to go with my veggies and it makes for a nice meal. If you are cooking potatoes or sweet potatoes, you don't really need the rice.
I am in week 3 of P90X and I am always looking for a high protein meal. I threw this together last night and just ate it for lunch, and it was great! And all organic! I thawed 8 ounces of cooked tail-less shrimp. Then, in a fry pan that I sprayed with Olive Oil, I sauted half a 10oz bag of frozen red and green pepper and onion mix, and I dumped about 2/3 cup of frozen chopped broccoli. After sauteing two or three minutes, I threw in the shrimp til they were a little browned (another couple of minutes). I added a 1/3 cup of Amy's salsa. It was SO yummy and filling. And only between 300 and 320 calories.
