Well, for me this is going to mean my Lean and Green meal. We have been working very hard at getting back into shape and reduce our waist! And for me, a bit lower as well!
A while back I purchased some Lékué cookware items and I LOVE them!
Last night it was just me at home for dinner. One of the many things I love about Thrive is that is it just as easy to cook for 10 as it is for one person. Last night was just one more example of how to eat right and quickly when it's just you. I started with my veggies, just whatever sounded good right then. Here I have decided to use broccoli, green beans, onions, celery and red bell peppers.
You could you any variety you like. I keep some of my most used items out on the counter at all times. It just makes things that much more convenient.
I seasoned with salt, pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of our new, but seasonal, classic lemonade. This is a lemonade mix that you add your own sweetener to, therefore it can be used in a variety of ways!
I placed the serving of salmon on the steam tray, which is over the veggies. Seasoned with our chef's choice seasoning blend and 1/2 teaspoon our our classic lemonade.
You can see the veggies on the bottom. Since I'm using freeze dried veggies I added hot water for my liquid. My husband is English so we always have the electric kettle with hot water in seconds. For this amount of veggies I used 3/4 cup of hot water and cooked in the microwave. This brand of cookware is great in the microwave, oven or sun oven. I wanted dinner fast! Microwaving for 3 1/2 minutes for this size serving of Salmon is what was required. I let it rest with the cover closed for 1 minute more and AHHHHH!
Perfectly done salmon, and perfectly done veggies. One piece of cookware. NO washing, chopping, peeling of vegetables. No bagging and storing of pieces of veggies not yet used hoping I do use them in the next day or so. Just quick, easy, tasty and nutritious food!
I know the lighting was not very good for these pictures, but you do what you can with what you've got at the time.
My point is ....
It is wonderful to live in a time were we do have freeze dried foods available to all of us! I work two jobs. I may have to cook for one or for 8, who knows! I wish my grandmother had this available to her when she was alive and living on her own and did not eat right as it was just too difficult to bother. This would have made her life so much easier and healthier. When my son goes off to college he will have decent food on hand to eat well when he's not off getting pizza!
I just know that I feel so much better knowing we are eating quality foods AND that I have
MY own Home Store to depend on no matter what happens.
