The other day I was blessed with what was perhaps the most successful ‘essentials’ grocery trip I have ever undertaken. For a grand total of $35, I was able to purchase:
GF bagels + 1/2 dozen eggs
limes + lemons + avocados
walnuts + chocolate chips
two of my favorite snack bars + plaintain chips
AND all the necessary ingredients for my one-dish Cali Food endeavor [minus the tortillas because I already had those]:
pre – blessed lentils
1 can of black beans
Hashtag, Super Market Sweep, am I right?? Ha.
My idea was to see if they had pre-blessed (aka ready to eat) quinoa as a ground beef substitute for this Mexican inspired warm salad cause that’s my jam. I didn’t come across any cooked quinoa, but they did have pre-blessed, unflavored lentils!! Hollapraize. So this meal was super easy to make and just as easy to clean. I literally used like two dishes, one pan, and three untensils.
As much as I would have enjoyed sour cream, I opted to allow the guac some prime time to shine so as not to have more dairy in my day. I’d already had a double mocha with a spritz of hazelnut syrup that morning before Pre-Ballet. God bless baristas.
And this will last me basically last me 3-4 days!! You could also freeze it if you’re into that.
God is great, God is good; let us thank Him for our fud.
