For all my hunnies and hubbies participating in Meatless May or thinking about joining us on this little journey, I totally get it can be hard to think of things to keep you full and energized throughout your work day. But it doesn’t have to be! At Skinny Souping we are dedicated to fast, easy meals. So here is a one-day meal plan- along with some quick recipe outlines- straight from my own typical workday during this first week of Meatless May!

BREAKFAST

Brown-Sugar Cinnamon Oatmeal with Nuts and Berries

½ cup of quick dry oats with 1 cup of water, microwave

Add 2 tablespoons of chopped walnuts or pecans

Add 3 tablespoons of dried cranberries/blueberries

Add light brown sugar and cinnamon to taste

-OR-

Peanut-Butter Protein Smoothie

1 whole banana

1 tablespoon of PB2

1 tablespoon of Chocolate PB2

1 scoop of chocolate protein powder

1 cup of Original Unsweetened Almond Milk (might have to add more as you blend)

Ice, ice baby!

*Use your favorite blender to mix and enjoy!

SNACK

Lightly Salted Edamame (unshelled)

½ cup to 1 whole cup of Edamame

*Can be found in the frozen foods section at Trader Joe’s!

LUNCH

Skinny Souping Soup and Tomato Chickpea Salad (salad yields more than one serving)

Any one of Skinny Souping’s single-serve soups! Heat and eat.

4 tablespoons of olive oil

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

1 (15-ounce) can garbanzo beans/chickpeas, drained and rinsed

Spinach (you can never have enough greens!)

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves

2 teaspoons ground cumin

Salt and pepper to taste

SNACK

Apple or Banana with Almond Butter

One slices apple or banana

Soy sauce, brown sugar or agave nectar, olive oil, garlic powder, ginger powder- mix for tofu marinade.

Toss tofu in marinade and bake 400 degrees for 30 minutes or more, until brown and crispy!

*Add baked tofu on top of a plate of your favorite greens (i.e. broccoli, spinach, kale, etc.) along with some cooked brown rice or quinoa!
