Hasn’t it been nice to start your day off with a good hearty breakfast? Eating something that “sticks to your ribs” allows you to focus on the details of your day instead of having constant distractions about food. It literally makes you a better person!
When we think about lunch it’s usually a sandwich or a salad, so eating a vegetable dish that’s hearty, comforting, filling and portable, can be a nice change of pace from the usual lunch time routine. I made a super- simple dish this weekend. Then I packed a couple meal sized serving to go to make my work week organized and easy.
Green Peas and Ham (much better than Green Eggs and Ham)
I started with these super simple ingredients:
12 Ounces Ham ( 1 1/2 packages)
1 Pound Green Peas
Sear the ham in a hot pan for 3-4 minutes. Dish the ham back onto the cutting board and add onions to the pan. Drizzle a little olive oil, stir, and let simmer until lightly brown.
Add frozen peas straight into the pan, stir, and let simmer for 6 to 10 minutes, depending on how you like your peas. Six minutes will make them bright green and fresh and ten minutes will make then dull, sweet, and gooey.
When the Peas are done, add a pinch of salt, stir, and mix the ham back in.
Because the dish had 12 ounces of meat it’ll make 3 meals for me (12 ounces ÷ 4 serving per meal = 3 meals). If you need 3 protein serving per meal it’ll divide into 4 meals (12 ounces ÷ 3 ounces per meal =4 meals). If you need 5 servings per meal I recommend making the recipe with 16 ounces of ham (16 ounces ÷ 5 ounces per meal = 3 meals)
Divide the recipes into 3 separate dishes, eat one 🙂 and store the other two. You can store them for the fridge or the freezer, using a glass bowl or a plastic zip lock bag.
