Week 4 – Let’s Clean Out the Fridge!

The next few weeks are going to be particularly busy for me because of work stuff and life stuff and so meal prep is more important than ever! With that being said, I don’t have a ton of time to devote to cooking this week so this week was more about using what I had laying around the house to make my grocery trip/cooking time as quick as possible.  Because of this, this week only cost me about $30 which was nice but not typical.

Breakfast

  • Overnight Oats
    • These are easy and awesome and you can add whatever fruit, berries, nuts, seeds, etc. that you want in the morning.  I eat mine cold and my husband likes to heat them up like oatmeal so try different ways and different toppings to see how you like it!

Lunch

  • Korean Seitan with Rice
    • Love this recipe! This is a go-to recipe for when you are making a meal for carnivores because they can never tell that it is seitan and not beef.  It is quick, easy and seriously delicious.
      • 2 packs seitan (If you make your own seitan you will need ~1lb) cut into small chunks
      • 1/4 cup brown sugar
      • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
      • 1 TBS sesame oil
      • 4 minced garlic cloves
      • 1/2 tsp ginger
      • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
      • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
      • Romaine Lettuce for lettuce cups
      • Sriracha
      • Brown Rice, Cooked
    • In a large frying pan cook the garlic in oil until it starts to soften
    • Add the seitan and cook until browned
    • Add brown sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, crushed red pepper and mix well, cooking for ~5 minutes
    • Fill a lettuce cup with rice, seitan mixture and top with green onions and sriracha

Dinner

  • This was one of those inventions that sprang from whatever I happened to have in the kitchen.  Since it has no name I am calling it Klup in honor of a strange mixture that my father in law used to make for my husband when he was young.  Here is what I put into it but make your own mixture with whatever you happen to have in the freezer! Eat it plain or wrap it up with hummus in a tortilla
    • Frozen broccoli, peas, green beans
    • Diced onion
    • Yellow peppers
    • Black Beans
    • Brown Rice
    • Salt/Pepper
    • Low sodium soy sauce to taste
