30- Minute Meals
I’m a fan of the 30 minute meal (dinner). Eating healthy can be easy if you make a plan . Left overs and what’s in your refrigerator can make some amazing meals.

Having some staples on hand is the key to pulling off a last minute 30 minute meal.

I would define a Staple as:

πŸ‘‰ Stock chicken, vegetable, and/or beef stock

πŸ‘‰ Spices to keep on hand: garlic (or fresh garlic; can be in jar form in olive oil), Adobo seasoning, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, onion powder (or a supply of fresh onions), ect.

πŸ‘‰ Chicken in family pack – frozen instead of fresh and ready when in a pinch for time; or other meats of your choice even frozen shrimp.

πŸ‘‰ Stock your favorite and variety of pastas. Ditalini and Pastina for soups, Rotini, Angel Hair, Fettuccine, etc.

πŸ‘‰ Stock brown rice – slow cook in a bag – not instant: slow cook is healthier.

πŸ‘‰ Stock oatmeal – slow cook not instant: slow cook is healthier for you.

πŸ‘‰ Fresh variety of greens – romaine, spinach, arugula. These varieties usually come in a variety package or container now in the grocery store. Could also pick up Endive, Collard greens.

πŸ‘‰ Frozen green peas – for a kick of sweetness

πŸ‘‰ Fresh broccoli – comes in a family size now already cut and ready to use. I wash or rinse and use broccoli in almost everything. It’s green, delish, and healthy. Great for snacking raw or cooked β€œal Dente” (means steamed but still slightly crunchy … yum?).

πŸ‘‰ Fresh carrots – you can get these already prepared and bagged in many ways now. I like the carrots cut like chips. Great for snacking, dipping, and the right size to include in your dishes.

πŸ‘‰ Green beans, snow pea pods

πŸ‘‰ Lemons and Limes – cut these up and put in your water glass. Keep a bag of both cut up in the frig. and ready to use. Add one lemon or lime or both to a glass of water and let the glass sit on your counter with the lemons and/or limes in the water to infuse the juice in the water … drink. Fill your glass several times when empty and repeat drinking. The lemons and limes will last about a day reusing them. GREAT way to get your water in. Tastes great, hydrates you, and healthy.

πŸ‘‰ Salad dressing – I like the β€œ7 Seas” box of mixable make-your-own dressing where you add olive oil, balsamic, water, and the seasoning packet. Great for salads, topping veggies (cooked or raw), and marinades.

πŸ‘‰ Assortment of cheese – I like the Italian mix of Parmigiano and Reggiano. Also, Romano and/or Asiago. I love the sheep cheese Manchego … it’s buttery and great on crackers!! (great for snacking while cooking .. lol).

I love making a quick, last minute meal with what’s in my refrigerator – one pan meal!  

  1. Start with coating bottom of pan with olive oil, add a fresh onion, garlic, and saute browning slightly. 
  2. Add your meat choice and put a lid on it, turning down your heat. 
  3. Turn meat over and brown other side, stir.
  4. Once meat is browned on both sides add whatever else to your pan: peas and/or lettuce/spinach greens, could add pasta that was prepared ahead (leftover) or brown rice prepared ahead (left over), or diced potatoes … your choice. 
  5. Make sure you get plenty of veggies in there. 
  6. Add you spices and cover to finish cooking through but also for the flavors to infuse into one another. 

A lot of times these one-pan dinners can be really good the next day !!
