Sometimes food just gets annoying. It really is quite the task to sit down and eat three+ times per day, not to mention feeding an entire family. We're all busy rushing off to work, packing kids up for school, emotionally supporting our husbands in grad school and/or brand new big-boy jobs, cuddling newborn babies on little to no sleep, all while trying to keep ourselves fueled. Healthily might I add. Some of us got together and this week we will be sharing with you some of our favorite simple, mostly no-cook and easy-prep meals. Call them breakfast, lunch, or dinner, a lot of them fly for any of the above. After this week, you'll actually be excited for lunch!
A lot of these recipes involve pita pockets. Have you tried them? I'm obsessed. They're insta-meals in a pocket! You can buy them at most grocery stores, I prefer the whole wheat ones. I've even made them before, and they were surprisingly easy and seriously delicious, see them here.
Fats help kee you satisfied, right? You know what is creamy, delicious, fatty, and good for you?Avocado is high in monounsaturated fats, which are actually good for you! Hooray! You officially have my permission to down these babies.
This meal is a simple fix: slice some avocaods and tomatoes, sqeeze a lime or two, season with salt and pepper.
