Thai basil chicken (or any protein)!! It’s super flavorful, doesn’t require a ton of ingredients, and can be made in about 20–30 minutes!

>But, if you can’t find Thai basil

A good substitution for Thai basil is 75% Italian basil and 25% mint. Sounds weird but works great in Asian dishes.

I realized I was pregnant eating this dish 😂. I had never before been able to eat an entire tray of basil noodles from my local Thai shop. One day I was just so, so, so ravenous I devoured the entire tray in five minutes flat. My husband was clearly so surprised (we usually share it) but didn’t say a word. I started to wonder where to is newfound appetite came from, later turns out I was one week pregnant!

Something I like to do when I make this (I eat this almost twice a week), is serve it over some rice and then also some chopped cabbage. If you make it spicy like me, the cabbage adds some good healthy volume to the dish but also is great to provide some freshness to the heat!!

Yay thank you for this! Making this next week! My partner and I like to do theme nights where we pair a meal with a board game or a movie/TV show that all have a similar theme. We’re going to make this for supper and then play Herbaceous (the card game). Get it??? Because basil???

Zucchini, peppers, leeks, eggplants, peas, celery (root), tomatoes and cherry tomatoes, cucumber, beetroot, radish, lettuce, green onions, parsley, green beans, okra, corn, parsnip, earth apple (not sure about the correct name).

Edit: avocado

hot-zucchini

Artichokes, simmered and then dipped in butter

Fennel, roughly chopped and roasted

Onions, sauteed and on top of things

Zucchini, sliced thin and eaten with hummus or dip, like chips

TerrifyinglyAlive

Asparagus. Asparaguses? Asparagi?

Anyway. Those are the best vegetable.

Have you tried squashes? Butternut squash soup is pretty good

cockytacos

Are you eating those veggies raw?? When cooked they often don’t have quite that same effect…but I agree those are typically the best tasting ones lol. You could try squashes (yellow, zucchini, acorn, butternut, spaghetti, etc) for some new variety. Sweet potatoes have more benefits than white ones, so that’s another idea.

What’s your favorite way to eat root vegetables besides just chopping them up and roasting them?

Stew – all in a pot, some flavouring and leave to cook for a few hours. Break out with some decent bread, butter and red wine or Beer….

2ndGenX

Doing all that stuff you mentioned, BUT THEN, cooling them back down in the fridge, and tossing them together a with a vinaigrette and eating it as a rustic salad.

ChefChopNSlice

Mash em, boil em, stick em in a stew

surferdude313

Diced small and sautéed and made into taco “meat”

Grilled! Grilled carrots are amazing

I’ve been obsessed lately with African peanut stew. It’s made with sweet potatoes but you can totally add parsnips and carrots and whatever else.

Mashed. Mashed sweet potato, turnip, etc. Yum.

How much Oats do you eat in your oatmeal?

i dunno like 200 oats?

throwaway_u_knowaway

When I make oatmeal, I usually make a 1/2 cup of quick oats which the internet is telling me is 45 grams.

I usually top it with a bit of brown sugar, pbfit (powdered peanut butter), almond milk, and occasionally a banana or apple. I pair it with a cup of percolated caffeinated coffee (or two).

Yes, it does fill me up enough to get to noon lunch. Sometimes it’s a bit too heavy for me in the morning though and I’ll grab a small bite of something sweet instead. Like a slice of homemade banana bread, or a bit of leftover apple crisp or something.

Some days it’s just jam on toast.

I’m 5’8.5″ female and about 154 lbs.

YMMV depending on diet, exercise, and a multitude of other things.

RapesBuffalos

I do 3/4 of a cup of oats (60g) with either PBFit (± 2 TBSP) or 2 TBSP of actual peanut butter and about 2 TSP of brown sugar. Sometimes I throw in some Grapenuts for added texture and fiber.

But I’ve also tried a lower carb breakfast (Greek yogurt, peanut butter, and protein powder), and I am definitely fuller longer.

Carbs just don’t fill me up as long…even if they are whole grain with a lot of fiber.

thefunivehad

I know where you are coming from. Oatmeal never seemed to fill me up, despite certain claims of how filling it is.

I have some steel cut oats and lentils in my instant pot, right now. New recipe. I never make breakfast in my instant pot. Sure smells good, though. That might be from the apple I chopped up and the banana I smashed up and added, along with pumpkin spice and a pinch of salt.

When it is ready, I will try adding some coconut milk, and monkfruit sugar.

This recipe makes more than one serving. I like cold overnight oats, as well, so may try them cold, or warm them up in the microwave.

Fingers crossed.

cattaillss

40g, lots of almond milk, half a serving of protein powder. Salt. Serve cold and top with hot berries.

One way to use all your salad greens

I’m pretty sure you lose nothing by pulverizing (except that it’ll be a much closer dupe for obscenely expensive greens powders).

Nheddee

A tip to make them last longer, take the greens out and put a thick layer of paper towels on the bottom. Put greens back in. More paper towels on top. Absorbs excess moisture. Definitely keeps them fresh longer, like a week or more as opposed to like two days lol

NoConversation5893

Also you can freeze them to add to smoothies.

leperbacon

Buy spinach or baby spinach. Sautee the amount you don’t eat as it starts to spoil.

SuckMySake

Oooo I’m intrigued!

Wilted spinach in everything!!

I think I saw this on this subreddit but try it. Take a bowl full of spinach, splash olive oil, salt and pepper. Microwave 1 min to wilt. Tasty. Instead of having two eggs for breakfast, I’ll have 1 and a spinach bowl.

JohnFruitbat

Kale is also a winner, wilted or in soups and stews. Wilted with bacon fat. Drool.

SmallPiecesOfWood

Yes!! I throw a few handfuls of spinach into almost everything. Pasta dishes, soups, fried rice, scrambled eggs, etc. One of my go-to “I don’t want to cook” meals is pasta cooked in chicken broth, drained, with butter, salt, garlic, and spinach—quick, cheap, delicious, and not entirely bad for me.

FamersOnly

This is how I got my son to get some extra veggie servings for years! Literally threw a bunch in some spaghetti sauce tonight.

DeedleLeedleLee

Frozen spinach balls/pellets/whatever they want to call them is also a great hack and takes up less space/doesn’t go bad.

freeze them and drop them in smoothies

semisyn

you can slice and dry in the oven on a very low temperature for banana chips.

_halftongue

Peel them before you freeze them!!! Enjoy!!

JosieZee

Not a huge deviation from banana bread, but chocolate chip banana muffins are a staple in my house! They freeze really well too.

Frozen bananas in general are good actually- good in smoothies, or you can dunk or drizzle them in chocolate and freeze that for a yummy treat

snidleywhiplash8

slice into chunks, dip half into melted dark chocolate, then sprinkle with crushed lightly salted almonds. then freeze and they’ll be ready to eat after 30 mins
