Once I make a big dinner, I have that left over for other meals, but I need to have more things prepared that I can grab and throw together when I'm starving. Which I am a lot of the time.
Today, I was in a lot of knee pain and not moving too quickly after running some errands, it was later in the day, so I had to find something quick . . . with protein and veggies.
I still had some of my veggie soup left that I made. I hadn't blogged the making of the soup, since it was the first week of, during detox from grains, sugar, processed foods & bad crap.
This is what I did for the soup though, and you can use any vegetables you have in your house. .
i put some olive oil in a big pot on the stove.
Then I cut up veggies that i had in the house, all pretty chunky
fresh green beans
golden beets, peeled and sliced
Crimini mushrooms sliced
red onion sliced
yellow summer squash
and sautéed them for maybe 5 minutes or so
i would have added a can of organic diced tomatoes, but all i had was a small can of tomatoe sauce and one box of Trader Joe's vegetable broth so I added that then let it simmer covered until it was done.
S&P, fresh grated garlic and a ton of SPIKE which is a seasoning.
For lunch, I had one leftover turkey meatball from the other day, so I chopped that up and put it into the soup and heated it up on the stove. Voila! Hearty, healthy, Paleo lunch.
