That don’t include chicken breast, broccoli or rice 🙂
No matter what your goals are, a charcuterie board can be easily modified to be higher protein, lower carb, higher fat, more vegetable-based or whatever you want it to be! On the right is a photo of the whole spread my husband and I enjoyed on a Saturday night. On the left is a smaller serving for a Monday night meal. Both were delicious and super simple to track!
Kodiak Cakes Blueberry Waffles
There couldn’t be list of my favorite meals without mentioning Kodiak Cakes Waffles. If you follow me on instagram, you probably know how often this is my breakfast! A few chocolate chips and a handful of blueberries makes this hard to pass up for anything else. You could certainly makes these as pancakes and I often add a little extra fruit or an egg on the side. These are also meal prep friendly if you prepare them in advance and then pop them in the toaster to warm them up and get them crispy again!
Another staple in our household is cauliflower pizza! Our easiest version is to take the pre-made frozen cauliflower pizza from Costco and just add any extra toppings we want (peri peri sauce, ground turkey, red onion). If you happen to live near a Trader Joe’s, another easy cauliflower pizza option is to get the pre-made cauliflower crust and add a low sodium tomato sauce, protein and veggies to it! So easy and a delicious way to have pizza every week.
Veggie Noodle Bowl w/ Turkey Meatballs
If you’re someone who has never enjoyed extra lean ground turkey, I have the ultimate solution. Breadcrumbs. TRUST ME. It adds amazing texture, helps the turkey keep its moisture and makes it incredibly delicious. All I do is add about 8 grams of breadcrumbs to 4-6 ounces of ground turkey with a little extra garlic powder. Make that into a patty or meatballs and cook on a skillet until done. Add that to and spiraled vegetable (we like butternut squash and kohlrabi) and you have the easiest meal ever.
Savory Oat Bowl
This one’s for any other kindred spirits that don’t like quinoa. I don’t HATE quinoa, but I just don’t get the hype! I do however, love oats. This is a bowl a make for lunch, even thought it’s very reminiscent of breakfast. The runny egg on top is optional, but highly encouraged. You can really add any vegetables to this dish. I recommend a mix of a few different vegetables like kale, bell peppers, onion, garlic, tomato and sprouts. Add a little douse of soy sauce and you’re done!
