To say family dinners at my home can be hectic is a bit of an understatement. I currently live with a college student and 2 small business owners. This means dinners need to be quick, filling, and fuel all of our bodies well to keep us going. We also have 2 picky eaters and someone with a food sensitivity, so I'm always looking for meals with basic ingredients and interchangeable sides (e.g., someone ate sweet peas with this meal instead of bell peppers).
This meal provides around 400 Calories, so can be helpful for someone following a weight-loss plan as is or can be complemented with a side salad or a bigger portion size if a larger meal is needed. It also provides almost 30g of protein and is a good source of fiber, vitamin E, iron, and potassium. It's high in antioxidant vitamins A and C. This recipe provides a good source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 from canola oil and over 7g of monounsaturated fatty acids.
This meal is gluten-free, dairy-free, and provides 40g of carb (2-3 carb servings).
