So…last night, I didn’t want to make a frittata for dinner so I wouldn’t end up having eggs for lunch and dinner today.
Too bad I ended up having eggs for breakfast and lunch anyway! I guess it is a good thing I’m not also having eggs for dinner, but, honestly, I love eggs so much that I wouldn’t mind.
I was originally planning on oatmeal for breakfast this morning, but as soon as that bacon hit the pan, my plans changed.
And I just couldn’t get this lunch out of my head.
Yes, eggs + beans + grains + veggies is now one of my favorite meals. I’d never even made a dish like this until a few months ago, and now it’s all I want for lunch on the days I work from home!
It’s a great way to clean out the fridge and use up random leftovers, too. I was able to use 2 more zucchini and squash in this dish!
- mix of leftover Spanish brown rice (tomatoes, peppers, corn) and last of the barley, corn, tomato, and bean salad plus sauteed zucchini and yellow squash with chile powder and garlic
- fat free refried beans
- 2 over easy eggs
A complete meal in one bowl: whole grains, vegetables, protein, healthy fat and a ton of flavor.
Who says eating healthy and balanced has to be tough or bland, for that matter?
What’s your favorite and most flavorful healthy / balanced meal, the one you would make for someone else just to PROVE that eating healthy isn’t boring?
I’d say homemade Mexican meals would be one of my top choices. It’s SO easy to make healthy Mexican meals at home and have a TON more flavor than the greasy dishes you get at restaurants.
