With my crazy schedule…full time job along with teaching 4-5 spin classes a week at the gym, things can get a little hectic. I like to plan my meals in advance so I don’t run for the drive thru window…although at times that can be tempting! Here are some quick dinner faves I have as arsenal to prevent such dilemmas.
Southwest stuffed peppers- Adopted from this recipe. This was super easy and fun to make! Plus I had leftovers for DAYS. I will definitely make again. I used quinoa instead of the rice and dressed mine up with avocado and crumbled goat cheese for an extra kick. You can omit the turkey if you are a veggie and just fill it with black beans and quinoa…still fantastic!
Quinoa fried rice- From this post…super quick and filling. I had it on the side with my mama’s famous teriyaki chicken wings. Like chinese takeout made at home!
Spicy chicken and sauteed kale- This is is also one of my staples for lunch because I can make it in the morning while I’m getting ready for work or even the night before. I use frozen cooked chicken strips and season them with a little olive oil, garlic powder, and louisiana hot sauce. Bake on 400 for 25 minutes. Sauté the kale in a pan with nonstick cooking spray, add seasonings. Quick and healthy lunch and/or dinner.
Panko crusted tilapia- Again, I am a huge fan of the frozen precooked bags of fish and chicken. Makes it so easy! I season these with the same seasonings as the chicken then coat the fish with panko bread crumbs and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes. Serve with your favorite side dish.
