There is nothing better in the winter months than a nice warm afternoon pick me up! [Read more…] about Afternoon Coffee Break
Trader Joe’s is my go to for quick and healthy meals at home. This latest combo is my new personal favorite for fall. This sauce is made from tomato, pumpkin and butternut squash and is delicious served over your favorite noodles or noodle substitutes. I personally love it over Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi. This Cauliflower Gnocchi has become a staple in my freezer, I love how it fully satisfies my pasta cravings with only a fraction of the carbs per serving that would be found in traditional Gnocchi. Zoodles are another low carb “pasta option” and that never disappoints!
When served over the Cauliflower Gnocchi I love to add either ground turkey or chicken sausage and then throw additional vegetables into the mix like broccoli or green beans. Sprinkle some parmesan on top and you have a complete meal in one easy dish. Quick prep and even quicker clean up! Dinner made easy!
Midweek dinners can be quick and easy (and relatively healthy). My favorite easy go-to is the Trader Joe’s Chicken Wonton Soup pictured above. The soup can be found in the frozen food section of Trader Joe’s and is perfect to keep on hand for evenings when you don’t have a lot of time to cook. I always have one in my freezer and especially love to heat one up on nights when I travel and don’t have time to grocery shop right away. I personally like to add extra vegetables to the soup for additional fiber and nutrition; one can never have too many vegetables! I switch up which vegetables I add, but today I added frozen broccoli and The Trader Joe’s Frozen Organic Vegetable Trio that consists of carrots, corn and beans. This soup also tastes great with any “stir fry” veggie mix. Frozen vegetables are a great staple to keep in your freezer and are especially great if you live alone and/or travel as you never have to worry about food waste!
Quick and easy meals can be created in the comfort of your home. A well stocked freezer is a happy home!
