I believe in eating ‘whole foods’ all the time, but it is helpful to have some ‘go to’ items that are healthy and can be prepared within minutes. Here are just a few of my favorites:
This Organic Spinach and Cheese Ravioli can be found at Costco. I usually top with a little marinara (note: my favorite brand is Rao’s). The Ricotta and Spinach filled Ravioli is from Trader Joe’s. Both low in calories per serving and delicious. Add a salad on the side and you have a great meal.
These already washed and chopped salads are fantastic! The combination of veggies and toppings in each are wonderful compliments but I forego the toppings and dressing and use balsamic vinegar. Both can be found at Costco.
Trader Joe’s has a wonderful variety of cuisines in their frozen section. As a person that cooks and is discerning when it comes to flavor, they nail it for me in these dishes. They taste like home cooked meals and I love that they are bold with their combinations.
I cook channa (chick peas) often so it’s a big deal for me to even give a frozen version a chance. This does not disappoint and helps in a pinch at only 180 calories per cup with lots of protein and fiber.
Let me spell this out for you – white and red quinoa, sweet potato, and zucchini wonderfully seasoned and a little spice. At only 220 calories per cup it is also packed with protein and fiber.
I’m not even a big risotto fan but I like this combination. Plus one cup is only 160 calories without missing the flavor. This is a winner.
Feed the wellness in you!
