Vegan Chickpea Burrito Bowls are ones that I love prepping ahead for weekday lunches.  It’s also one super easy to throw together for a quick meal for those weeks when I’ve failed to do much meal prep.  The chickpeas make the bowl by adding not only some major pops of flavor, but also crunch by cooking them in the skillet with taco seasoning (Wildtree is my fav!) and garlic powder.

12-Minute Dinner: Chicken Fried Rice

I like to use Eat Smart’s Vegetable Stir-fry Bag that has snow peas, broccoli, carrots, and shredded cabbage, but you can use any assortment of cut fresh vegetables. When it comes to rice options, use ready-to-heat packages, previously cooked and cooled brown rice, or cauliflower “rice” to go lower-carb. They’re ready in two minutes, and there are lots of whole-grain options to choose from now (even Target’s store brand offers an assortment!). Basically, these pouches can save the day.

You can’t really go wrong with tacos of ANY variety, but these steak tacos are one of my favs. They use flank steak which is a cut that requires little seasoning and cooks quick on the grill or in the oven (less than 15 minutes!).

Has anyone else gotten a little too dependent on bagged salads this winter? It’s easy to get in a rut, and I’m calling myself out on this one. I’ve been ready/needing to upgrade my salad repertoire, and this LEMONY ARUGULA SALAD with PARMESAN is the perfect fit. Not only does it have a light lemon dressing and baby spring peas, but it also is about as easy as tossing together those bagged salad components.
