Easy-Breezy, Anti-Inflammatory, Nutritious, Delicious Meal: The key is the Sauce and Dressing

I just had an easy-breezy, anti-inflammatory, nutritious, delicious meal.  The key is the sauce and dressing — most significantly in this case, Trader Joe’s Satay peanut sauce.  Here is what I ate:

One Pot Entrée

  • 1/2 can garbanzo beans
  • 1/3 firm tofu block
  • Two handfuls of Trader Joe’s prewashed, prepackaged cooking greens
  • 1/4 jar peanut sauce, with another 1/4 jar water added

Dump everything into a pot, put on medium heat, stir, and take it off the stove when it’s boiling.

Yam

Yams and sweet potatoes have the comfort food feel of baked potatoes, with the extra nutritional value of beta-carotene.  Because all potatoes take forever to cook, I stick a bunch in the oven at once, bake them on 400 for an hour, then just leave them there or refrigerate them.  Over the next couple of days, I use them as my starch food item during meals.  Not only nutritious, but colorful and delicious!

Side Salad

  • A big handful of mixed baby greens, from Trader Joe’s pre-washed, pre-packaged salad selection
  • Homemade dressing from flax oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper (mostly oil, with a little vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste)
