Lunch game strong: balsamic + mustard tofu and veg bowl.
.
.
This lunch is great because it can be prepped and cooked in less than 1/2 hour! I did use an air fryer to make the kale, vegetables, and tofu, but you can use the broil option on your oven to give them the same crisp, you just may need to use more olive oil. Also, not mentioned in the ingredients below is the quinua I added!!

Balsamic + Mustard Marinated Veggies:
-zucchini
-yellow squash
-red onion
-brussel sprouts
-balsamic glaze (2 tblspoons per 1/2 cup water)
-Dijon mustard (2 tablespoons per 1/2 cup water)
-Black pepper
-red pepper flakes (optional)
*marinate overnight (or for a few hours)
*if air frying only include some liquid in the fryer with the veggies
*if cooking in oven you can put all of the marinade on the pan with the veggies to cook in and if u want to crisp them up you simply broil them for a few minutes once they’re cooked through

Tofu:
-mustard
-nutritional yeast
-black pepper
-red@pepper flakes
-sea salt
-honey
-olive oil
-paprika or sriracha (optional)
*marinate and then once ready to cook, coat them with nutritional yeast and black pepper to get crunchiness

Strawberry crumble pancakes :)))
If you can’t tell, I’m kind of obsessed with pancakes, specifically the high protein ones from @kodiakcakes . They allow me to indulge in my favorite flavors while also giving my body the fuel it needs to go about my day! These pancakes were a little more on the indulgent side since I added whipped cream and butter, but everyone deserves a treat every now and then right?! Also, this recipe only has 5 ingredients, so it’s an easy indulge! Anyways, see below for the recipe.

.
Ingredients:
-kodiak high protein pancakes
-cinnamon and/or pumpkin pie spice (add to pancake mix)
-frozen strawberries (heat in a pan with coconut oil)
-butter (or coconut oil) to grease pan
-nature valley granola bar (you can also make your own, but I just crumbled the nature valley bar to make this granola)
-whipped cream (optional)
