Having to resort to quick cleanup and minimal dishes cooking isn't a bad thing, but it has limited variety. Luckily with our healthier habits, routine and repeat meals is somewhat expected. So instead of a fandangled recipe to share, I thought I'd share what we've been doing the last couple weeks that have allowed me to keep my kitchen impossibly clean?
That healthier habits I mentioned? I have gotten the family on board with the basics of a protein, two vegetables and a bonus starch or carb sometimes. The boys would obviously love a carb every time, but I like to keep them on their toes and make it a treat. Muhaha.
How many different ways can you grill chicken on a grill?
Let me count the ways....
(all homemade spices, nothing packaged due to MSG)
marinated in onions and olive oil
Honestly I use a variety of the same 'flavorings' on fish or shrimp and use a fish basket for grilled fish or simply lay a piece of aluminum foil down for shrimp. Beef is easier with bunless burgers, moroccan spiced 'kifta', or steaks on rare occasions are all awesome on the grill.
A simple favorite that you may have seen repeatedly on my 'meal prep' sunday pictures is a bunch of roasted peppers or veggies. Your protein doesn't need much flavoring if its smothered in vegetables already.
Add a huge green salad (one that easily provides my lunches out of the leftovers) and a 2nd veggie and you set!
What is your favorite marinade or flavoring for your proteins?
Anyone else grill as much as we do?
