Favorite Quick and Easy Meals

 The past few months have been crazy busy for me. I graduated college, moved to New York, and finished decorating my apartment. I am settled in and ready to start blogging again.

I'm an adventurous eater so I try to find new restaurants around the city. The downside is eating out adds up and can take a toll on my wallet. My plan is to cook during the weekdays and give myself a break on the weekends. Recently I have been craving some of my favorite go-to meals I always cooked in college (wow, I feel so old). There is a supermarket right across the street from my apartment I stop by when I need an item or two. My meals are healthy, delicious, and take less than 30 minutes to make (except for crock pot recipes). Posted below are my favorite meals.

Enjoy! 

Crockpot Thai Chicken Curry

 My crock pot was a gift from my Granny and Aunt for my 21st birthday. When I have a busy week and not in the mood to cook, the crock pot takes over. 

 I found the Thai Chicken Curry recipe on Pinterest. This is my go-to recipe because there are only a few  ingredients to buy and takes three hours to cook. If you want delicious and home cooked meals with a ton of leftovers, buy a crock pot! 

 

Chicken and Avocado & Veggies

I try to eat healthy on the weekdays so I can splurge on the weekends. This bowl is full of protein, veggies, and healthy fats. 

Yaki Udon with Veggies & Chicken

When I have a hankering for Asian food I always make this dish. Super easy and delicious. I buy a pack of Yaki udon noodles - follow the directions on the back. Then I sauté mushrooms, peppers, carrots, and shrimp. Add some low sodium soy sauce or sichuan sauce for flavor.  

Light Avocado Salad with Veggies

Salads don't have to be boring. Add your favorite veggies, protein, and light dressing. Fruit salads are a great go-to during the Summer. 

Turkey & Veggie Wrap

Wraps are a perfect to-go meal to bring to work or class. I fill my whole wheat wrap with Boars Head Turkey, mozzarella cheese, spinach, tomatoes, avocado, and cracked pepper. To keep my wrap together I use two toothpicks on each side to keep it closed.  

Yaki Udon with Veggies & Shrimp & Fried Egg

Same recipe as the above yaki udon plate but swap the chicken with shrimp. Add a fried egg for extra protein.
