5. Nuggets & Veggies
Hopefully you don’t need a recipe for this lol. Just cook the nuggets/mock meats according to package directions, and steam or roast some veggies.

  1. My go-to / eat everyday meal is a "sushi bowl" – rice, baked tofu, add your favorite sushi toppings (raw veggies like carrots, cucumber, avocado, I like bell pepper and onions too), and a sauce (i make a mayo based sauce with soy sauce, Sriracha, lemon juice and ginger). Not the best winter meal but it's easy and not expensive if I don't add avocado. Going to try your bean and rice meal!

  2. Absolutely love your top, it so cute. Also I think you have some self control with your delicate drizzle of peanut butter cause no matter what my intentions are to have modest serving of it, I end up with a heaping tablespoon in my oats and I also a good few tea spoons out of the jar while I'm waiting for the oats to cook🤣 my breakfast is 90%peanut butter 10%oats LMAO
