Dinner In five minutes!

I see a lot of individuals and families who stress over what to make for dinner and think it needs to be this elaborate dish, or even multiple dishes! I am here telling you that I made this in less than 10 minutes. It would have been 5 if I prepped my food at the beginning of the week. (More on that topic another time) This meal includes greens, protein, fiber other vegetables that should be in your daily routine. Dairy is an option but not a must. I use a chicken substitute in this but can easily be replaced by the real deal! (If your chicken isn’t pre-cooked this could take a little longer)

Here it is folks:

  • I started with some coconut oil in medium sized pan on low to medium heat.
  • Threw in some: fresh basil, asparagus, chopped red peppers, chopped tomatoes, my favorite chicken substitute, pre-steamed lentils from Trader Joes.
  • I sautΓ©ed for about 4 minutes, and while that was happening I plated some arugula and goat cheese
  • Lay the steamed goodness on top of arugula

Dinner time!
