Some weeks I totally have it together when it comes to meal preparation. This week was not one them. I just couldn’t bring myself to get to the grocery store. I still haven’t. The pickings are getting slimmer and slimmer, but I am also getting more creative ;).
Between busy schedules and sleep deprivation, I just couldn’t do a grocery store trip at 9pm after the kids were asleep. I mean, half the time, I have fallen asleep with the kids. Nor have I convinced myself to take two rascally kiddos grocery shopping and actually be held accountable to my list of necessities.
But alas, we had to eat.
Enter the clean-out-the-refrigerator meal that is super simple and quick. You can have it on the table in about 15 minutes, especially if you chop veggies ahead or use a package of frozen veggies. I hesitate to even claim this is a “recipe”, as it generally a compilation of ingredients. But it tastes good enough, that I justify calling it a recipe. It’s even healthy.
Basically, I threw together a few cups of fresh veggies, Trader Joe’s Organic Riced Cauliflower (I always keep this in my freezer! My kids love it too!), two eggs, and coconut aminos. This is not a Trader Joe’s advertisement, but I also love to top this meal with their Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning. My 3-year old even claims this is his favorite spice.
