7 Healthful, Make Once, Eat Twice, Chopped Meals
By KC the Kitchen Chopper,
Ah, the holidays are over! I hope you had as wonderful a season as The Hubby and I did. We didn’t do as much “gift giving” to each other as we usually do…and you know what? It took the pressure off. We have what we need…each other. And we’re grateful for that every day! I know…a bit sappy, but I think it’s better to recount your blessings in the New Year than to make some resolutions that are daunting to keep. Just think about what is important. Health comes to mind. That’s at the top of my list.
So for the New Year, let’s focus on easy, simple healthful things you can do for you and your family. Eating real unprocessed food should be first and foremost. It’s not that difficult once you’re organized and armed with a bit of research. Getting movement into every day should be high on your list as well. Do you need help with exercise ideas? As a personal trainer, I can help you with that. Just leave a comment and let’s talk!
Now that all the party’s are over, you’re probably ready to deprive yourself to get back on track. Well, I have good news for you!
Healthful eating doesn’t mean dietary deprivation. Take a look at these 7 Hearty Chopped “Balanced meals in bowls” that are filling, satisfying, and delicious today and even better as leftovers. Make it once and eat it twice!
These Chopped meals will help you get fiber rich veggies, lean protein and energy packed grains into the whole family. Even the picky eaters. And that’s not always the kidlets.
All of these recipes are Gluten Free. If you want to keep them vegetarian, sub chicken for white beans. One can, drained and rinsed. Use veggie broth for chicken broth.
This compilation of recipes share some of the same ingredients. So once you buy, you can use them up. If you’ve made quinoa for the week and the recipe calls for brown rice. Go ahead and use your quinoa.
The Chopped is all about versatility!
Chopped meals Chop cost and calories. Chopped ingredients go farther. Stretching your food dollar. Another perk for the start of the New Year.
