Hot 5 Minute Meal (whole foods only!)
Recipe and video demonstration of how to make a hot, 5 minute dinner with whatever whole foods you have on hand in the refrigerator, freezer and pantry.
Brown the ground beef in a medium sized pot.
Pour in crushed tomatoes and precooked beans.
When hot and thoroughly mixed, add chili powder, sea salt, and pepper.
Serve with a small salad or carrot and celery sticks.
If you are interested in the bread in the picture, this recipe for garlic bread uses plenty of healthy fats and real, crushed garlic cloves. It is one of my family's favorite side dishes.
5 Minute Hot Meal (Demonstration)
The video below demonstrates the written recipe for you visual learners 🙂
Note that I use precooked beans in the dish, but you can just as easily use leftover veggies instead if that is what you have on hand. The point is to get creative and that a healthy dinner does not have to be complicated or time consuming to prepare.
