Healthy (Megan Approved!) Meals

Peep the video for a full tutorial & scroll down for the recipes!

 


Hi babes!
So I’ve recently been into eating WAY healthier than I used to, which has been a transition, I will admit. Over the past few months, I’ve found a lot of super yummy recipes that don’t necessarily taste “healthy.” I decided to pick 3 of my favorites, a breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipe, and share them with you! (I also decided to throw in some great snacks) Tweet me (@officialMegann) if you try any of these and let me know what you think! xo

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with Avocado toast

What you’ll need:
2 Eggs
½ TBSP Earth Balance butter
Cholula Hot Sauce (this stuff is my fave because it’s calorie-free, but makes EVERYTHING yummy)
Half an avocado
Whole wheat bread
Lemon juice
Salt & Pepper

Directions:
-Crack the eggs into a small bowl, whip until scrambled with a fork
-Put the ½ TBSP of butter into a small pan and melt down, spreading the butter around the bottom of the pan.
-Pour the eggs into the pan. Use a spatula to scramble the eggs around the pan until cooked.
-Cut the avocado in half, slicing vertically.
-Toast one slice of whole wheat bread to your liking.
-Place the avocados on the toast, topping with the amount of lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste.
-Serve on a plate with the desired amount of Cholula and enjoy. 🙂

Lunch: Siracha Tuna Lettuce wraps

What you’ll need:
-1 can of Starkist albacore tuna, solid white
-1-2 TBSP Lemon juice
-1 TBSP Sriracha (depending on how spicy you like your tuna)
-1-2 TBSP Light miracle whip
-½ TBSP light soy sauce
-Romaine lettuce heads
-Half an avocado
-Small mixing bowl

Directions:
-Drain the tuna water from the can (if you have a cat, this is a great little treat for them.)
-Empty the tuna into a small mixing bowl
-Mix in lemon juice, Siracha, Miracle Whip, and soy sauce with a fork until will mixed/the tuna is broken up from its solid state
-Wash the romaine lettuce heads and break off into singular pieces
-Cut an avocado in half and slice vertically, using a spoon to get the pieces out
-Spoon the tuna into the piece of lettuce, then top with avocado
Enjoy!

Dinner: Mexican Bowls with brown rice

What you’ll need:
Brown rice
1 can unseasoned black beans
1 can of corn
½ an avocado
Cholula hot sauce (again, I’m obsessed with it)
1 package of ground chicken (optional)
Salt

*if cooking ground chicken, add ½ TBSP garlic powder, 1-2 TSP onion powder, salt & pepper*

Directions:
-Brown rice takes 40 minutes to cook, so know this going in. Cook the brown rice (directions are on the bag) in a small sauce pan (depending on serving size)
-With 10 minutes left until the rice is cooked, put the black beans in a small pan and bring to a simmer to warm through.
-Put the corn in a small bowl and cook in the microwave until warm. (about 40 seconds)
-Slice the avocado half into cubes (cut vertically and horizontally)
-Dish the rice into a bowl, followed by the black beans, corn, avocado, then top with the desired amount of Cholula sauce. -Salt to taste.
*if cooking the ground chicken in this recipe, start cooking 20 minutes into the brown rice cooking. Put olive oil into a pan and cook the ground chicken through, adding the garlic powder, salt, pepper, and onion powder*

Snack #1: Berry Bowl

What you’ll need:
Raspberries
Blueberries
Blackberries
Strawberries

Directions:
Cut up the strawberries into halves or quarters, wash all the berries, throw them in a small bowl and enjoy!

Snack #2: Carrots and Hummus

What you’ll need:
1 package of baby carrots
1 tub Sabra Classic Hummus (or whatever your favorite flavor of hummus is)

Directions:
There are none; dip those carrots in that hummus and enjoy all the yum yums.

Other low-calorie snacks:
Black olives
Pickles
Pop Chips (only 100 calories per serving, and they are addictive)
Peanut butter & bananas
