Loving Left-Overs!

Left-Overs are becoming a big deal in my diet.
I use the first day of the week to soak and rinse my beans that I will eat for the week (or at least next few days). This week I cooked black beans, red beans and black-eyed peas. I made enough brown rice to last me and my family 3-4 days, organic corn and organic green peas, and quinoa. Everything is ready to go!
The only prep time I need for my meals are heating (which I heat all my goodies in a pot with a tsp of coconut oil), and dicing of any fresh veggies. I picked up some lettuce at the CSA this weekend that I use as a bed for my heated ingredients.
With my busy day to day life, it is important for me to have my food ready and available to me to cook and prepare quickly, but without risking my health. I choose to cook and prepare my own food rather than buy something frozen or packaged. It makes me feel much better and a lot lighter on my feet :)
Between my Raw Vegan Protein smoothies and vegan rice and veggie bowls, I got it made!
Don't let those left-overs go to waist!
Create a lunch or dinner bowl with a variety of veggies or make a soup!
My husband and I have come to the conclusion that making the base of our meals ahead of time and making rice and veggies the staple of our diet, we're making our wallets fatter :)
It's a fantastic WIN-WIN!
