Super Simple Salads and Chorus Geeks

Congratulations to our lucky iHerb giveaway winner Melissa (Contagious Health) who writes: "I love to juice and blend my greens as well as sneak them into unsuspecting dishes!"


I think we all do -- at least at times. Though it may not look like much (I mean, it's really just beans and veggies), when you're pressed for time, making a healthy, satisfying lunch can be difficult. So, this is my new go-to meal for the PM hours when I'm away from home at work. The best part: It's full of protein and healthy calories.

Oh, and did I mention it's CHEAP?
And FAST?!


What you'll need . . .
  • 1 bag of mixed frozen veggies (I used an Asian variety)
  • 2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • Low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oil of your choice
Method . . .
  1. Toss your frozen veggies into a pot with the oil and soy sauce. Heat over medium-high heat until warmed.
  2. Toss the warmed veggies into a storage container and mix with the beans.
  3. Just heat and eat when lunchtime comes!
  4. It's that easy. Season more if you like. Mix up the veggie and bean varieties when you get bored.
We didn't get a ton of time to cook over the weekend with all the 10K PR-ing, in-law visiting, and bed-buying. On the list for this week: Homemade pesto. Bread. Cookies. Probably a carb-fest, so I'm warning you now.

On tonight's agenda: MY FIRST CHORUS REHEARSAL. The last time I sang in a group, I looked like this (sorry, friends in this photo, I couldn't resist):

What are your favorite frozen foods? I'm growing a new appreciation for the non-rotting, frozen-at-the-peak-of-freshness, oh-so adaptable stuff. Just leave a comment or email us at neverhomemaker [at] gmail [dot] com.
