Meal Prep Tofu Cauliflower Stir Fry
I baked some tofu over the weekend, so it was able to go at lunchtime. Then, I whipped up a fast sauce by whisking collectively 1 tbsp of creamy Teddie peanut butter, 2 tbsp coconut aminos, and a sprinkle of powdered ginger. I poured the sauce over the tofu and a few cauliflower stir fry from Dealer Joe’s. Simple and scrumptious!
Italian Bean Salad
I randomly whipped up this salad the opposite night time, so, sadly, I don’t have the precise measurements, however right here’s the essential gist of how I made it. I blended collectively a can of cannellini beans with hummus, chopped crimson bell pepper, chopped steam broccoli, crumbled feta, and a bit little bit of Italian dressing. The top consequence was scrumptious!!
I’m loving this breakfast bake these days! It’s really easy to make, severely scrumptious, and macro-friendly with 14 grams of protein per serving. I like taking a chunk and making it right into a quickie breakfast sandwich!
I like this recipe for Cowboy Beans – it’s really easy to prep initially of the week for a protein-packed aspect dish. Simply take away the bacon from the unique recipe. The brand new macros per serving (with out bacon) are P eight C 41 F three.
Mealtime doesn’t get simpler than this! One serving of the Banza Mac & Cheese has 18 grams of protein – and, my gosh, it’s scrumptious! I like including frozen chopped spinach, broccoli florets, and/or child spinach to the combo for some added vitamins and quantity. If you happen to’re not a fan of mac & cheese, Banza makes an entire line of high-protein pastas!
