First Week of June–What I’m Having For Lunch!

Hello, hello! Starting the first week of June off strong with this delicious power bowl that I’ve prepped for lunch this week. What’s a power bowl you ask? Well for me, it’s a big bowl of goodness that is packed with vegetables, greens, whole grains, protein, and a homemade sauce! I really gravitate towards making these bowls for lunch because they are the easiest for me to prep on Sunday. I usually switch up my vegetables based on what is in season and then I’ll make a big batch of grains for the entire week.  This also helps keep my meals interesting and prevent boredom from occurring. From start to finish, I can have my lunch prep done in about an hour! I say that’s worth it because all I have to do each night (or morning) is place the ingredients in my to go container for work!

This week, I was craving a peanut type sauce with soba noodles. I’m a huge fan of soba noodles because they’re slightly chewy, have a nutty flavor, and cook in about 2 minutes! I also had some eggs that I needed to use up so I made a batch of hard boiled eggs. If you struggle like me to perfect the hard boiled egg, I would recommend trying to bake your eggs in the oven! Yes, a friend of mine told me this trick and it worked! I preheated my oven to 325 degrees, placed my eggs in a muffin tin and baked for 25 minutes. I then placed the eggs in cold water to stop the cooking process. They turned out perfectly and I don’t think I’m ever going back to the stove top version. Too many failed attempts!
