Go-To Meals

Protein  •  Carb  •  Veggie

I am currently on the unlimited dining plan in school, which means I can basically eat whatever, whenever, when I'm on campus. But when I am at home in California and actually cook, I prefer to make simple meals. My go-to's consist of a protein dish, a carb dish, and a veggie dish - generally, a wholesome and healthy meal that's portioned out. These meals are quick to put together, so I am not in the kitchen for hours on end. Below are the dishes I make for a simple, quick, delicious meal. They are all from Ina Garten because I am a big fan of hers. I follow the recipes for the shrimp scampi and lemon chicken breasts, but for the sweet potatoes, potatoes, brussel sprouts, and asparagus, I will go with the flow and season them without measuring. I normally just pour a bit of olive oil, sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper, add in some finely chopped garlic, maybe a bit of cayenne pepper for some kick, and then leave them in the oven at 400 degrees until slightly crisp. Super easy and tasty. Again, to make these meals, I just pick one out of each category of protein, carb, and veggie...
