I try to always prepare our lunches for the week on Sundays.
It helps to never have to worry about what to pack for lunch.
One of our favorite lunch meals is chicken, veggies and quinoa.
Super simple, tastes delicious and is extremely nutritious.
Quinoa is gluten free and has a high protein content of 18%,
it is a complete protein and contains essential amino acids.
This is what you need...
chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
1 bag of frozen vegetables
(you can cut up fresh ones, depends on how much time you want to spend)
quinoa (1 cup)
garlic (i used minced)
old bay seasoning
vegetable bouillon (1) or you can use a vegetable or chicken broth
mushrooms or other vegetables you want to throw in
Start with your chicken breasts in a lightly greased pan, season both sides of your chicken
with Old Bay. Let that cook thoroughly.
Then sauté your vegetables in a large pan, if you start with mushrooms and onions they have their own oils, so no need for any extra. Add in the minced garlic and any other spices according to taste and stir it up!
My awesome shark oven mitt !!!!!!
Grab a sauce pan and add in 1 cup quinoa, 2 cups water and 1 vegetable bouillon. (If you use broth then add in the broth as a substitute for the water). Stir it up and make sure the bouillon is dissolved and mixed in well. Bring to a boil then turn heat down to low and put a cover on the pan, let it cook for 15 minutes.
Once everything is cooked, dice up your chicken into bite size pieces.
Throw all of it into a large container and mix it all together.
And that is it, now you have a full week of super healthy lunches ready to grab!
I doubled the recipe in the photos, so feel free to do the same or make more if you want to!
