Prepping food in advance can be hard to get into, especially when you're not sure where to start!
Well this here is a great place to start!
2 or 3 times a month (it will depend on your schedule and # of mouths you have to feed) I make a pot of beans or lentils and use it in different ways.
💡 • Eat when it's fresh and hot with a salad and fresh bread.
• Add it to salads throughout the week.
• Throw it in a blender and make a dip.
• Use it in recipes.
It will keep in tightly closed containers in the fridge for a week otherwise it will freeze beautifully!
All you need is beans/lentils (pre-soak for faster cooking), an onion, a carrot or celery and salt & pepper! If you prefer simple tastes, just add some salt to the water.
*I often add olive oil & lemon once it's done cooking.
**If planning to use in sweet recipes, cook them plain 😽
I just discovered @nocrumbsleft this past weekend and I am fascinated by Teri Turner's passion for food. It is contagious! These Marinated Onions are a huge hit at her home so I had to give them a try. And because you know, onions, olive oil, red wine vinegar and oregano... how could that possibly go wrong? These onions are fantastic! They make a great topping for plenty of dishes. I have already used them on eggs, salads, avotoast, fish... but so many more options cross my mind that I don't know where to start! The idea is simple which makes it even better: to some thinly sliced red onion add a marinade made with 3/4c olive oil, 2tbsp red wine vinegar (Teri uses 1tbsp but I am more vinegar-y I guess), 1 tbsp dried oregano. Let sit on the counter for at least 8 hours. Don't refrigerate. These will last for 2-3 days. Don't throw away the marinade once you've finished your onions. Reason #1 because it's a sin. And #2 you'd be wasting a gorgeous salad dressing. See my stories for steps and go to @nocrumbsleft for more passionate cooking. #nocrumbsleft
Descubrí la cuenta y el blog de @nocrumbsleft este finde pasado y estoy fascinada por la pasión que tiene por la comida Teri Turner. Es hasta contagiosa! Estas Cebollas Marinadas son un gran éxito en su casa así que las he querido probar. Y también poreue la combinación de cebolla, aove, vinagre de vino y orégano es imposible que resulte mal. Bueno, están buenísimas! Le dan un toque perfecto a mil platos. Las he usado como acompañamiento de huevos, ensaladas, tosta de aguacate, pescado... pero se me ocurren tantas que no sé por dónde empezar. La idea es muy sencilla, lo que la hace aún mejor: a un poco de cebolla cortada fina se le añade una marInada hecha de 100ml aove, 2 cucharadas de vinagre de vino y 1 cucharada de orégano seco. Se deja reposar durante al menos 8h en la encimera. No refrigerar. Dura unos 2-3 días. No tiréis la marinada sobrante. Porque es pecado y porque os estaríais perdiendo un aliño para ensaladas que es de otro planeta. En mi stories os he dejado cómo lo he hecho.
Trying this sweet and sour dish again that I made last week, but this time using pork meatballs (using @mortaste sausages) and served With mash this week instead of rice. My fussy boys still aren't convinced, but they ate it! a semi success .... maybe! #fussyeaters#dinnerideas#sweetandsour#food
After workout dinner: homemade sockeye salmon pasta w/ marinara sauce (not pictured is my side of broccoli) 😋 salmon is fattier than chicken or some lean beefs however, the fats in salmon are super healthy brain fats! Not all fats are bad fats and they need to be included into your daily nutrition! #healthyeating#cleaneating#dinnerideas
I'm eating enough carrots for a month or maybe more. Oh! This juice has a least 16 carrots in it. I stopped counting after a while. Fueling my tired body with some good healthy food. Carrots and beets.
Also I apparently need to get my nails done 🙋🏻😬
I've never been a meat person and in my mind, protein has always meant meat. What I didn't realize was that our bodies are composed of protein. I had the realization through writing the blog I posted today that a contributing factor to my hate for my own body was subconsciously due to my disdain of protein.
I never took the time to ask myself why I wasn't a meat person. An incredible exercise to understand yourself better is to slow down your thoughts one by one and ask yourself why you feel the way you feel. Dissecting your feelings instead of just accepting them empowers self-awareness. The more self-aware you are, the more easily tuned in to your reactions you will be, helping you to better sort through your feelings and the true underlying causes of them.
The link in my bio is a blog about why you should have protein with every meal. Hint: it's more than what you think.
French Fries/Potato Chips
We know that these foods aren’t good for us, but did you realize that they’re considered cancer causing foods? These fast food staples are fried in hydrogenated vegetable oil and then heavily salted. We’ve already discussed the dangers of hydrogenated oils, but the high salt content is also concerning. It increases the risk of high blood pressure as well as other health problems. In addition, foods heated above a certain temperature have high levels of acrylamide. According to the National Cancer Institute, acrylamide is found in cigarette smoke and industrial building materials, as well some foods. Both french fries and potato chips were found to have higher levels of this chemical, which studies have shown increase the risk of cancer. Potatoes are also part of the Environmental Working Group’s “Dirty Dozen”, meaning they have some of the heaviest pesticide residue of all the fruits and vegetables.

And now for another breakfast wrap... Via @tastemade ⠀
For the pancake wraps: ⠀
2 large eggs ⠀
1/4 teaspoon vanilla ⠀
1/4 teaspoon salt ⠀
1 cup milk, divided ⠀
1 cup all-purpose flour ⠀
1/2 teaspoon butter ⠀
For the wrap filling: ⠀
4 hash brown patties ⠀
8 strips bacon ⠀
4 tablespoons butter, divided ⠀
1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided ⠀
8 large eggs ⠀
1 cup shredded cheese ⠀
4 tablespoons maple butter ⠀
2 tablespoons maple syrup ⠀
Make the pancakes: ⠀
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk eggs until lightly beaten. Add vanilla, salt and 1/3 cup of the milk, and stir until combined. Add flour and whisk until smooth. While whisking, add the remaining milk. Batter should be thick and smooth. Heat a 10-inch pan on medium-high and coat with butter. Drop approximately 2/3 cup of batter onto pan and cook until golden. You will start to see bubbles form on the top of the dough when it is close to flip time. Flip over and repeat until golden. Keep pancakes warm on a plate until ready to assemble. Prep the wrap ingredients: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Place 4 hash brown patties on parchment and bake until golden, approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Place strips of bacon on another sheet and bake until crispy, approximately 20 minutes. While bacon and hash browns are baking, prepare the remaining ingredients for the wraps. In a large nonstick pan, melt the remaining tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Crack eggs into a medium-sized bowl with the remaining salt, and whisk until yolks are broken and eggs are just combined. Pour into the warm pan and turn heat down to medium-low. Cook eggs very slowly, swirling them in the pan using a wooden spoon or spatula. Eggs are done when they look silky, have come together and are still a little wet. Turn off the heat and add cheese. Mix just to combine. Set aside. To assemble wraps: Spread maple butter in the middle of each pancake and place a hash brown on top. Place a quarter of the scrambled eggs on each hash brown. Layer bacon over the eggs
