It’s healthy, it’s easy and it’s oh so delicious!
I’m all about easy meals that can be made and on the table in less than 30 minutes. Easy Egg Roll in a Bowl is the perfect recipe for when time is not in your favor and you need something quick. What I love most about this recipe is that it’s not only healthy and delicious but that it reheats ever so nicely. It’s the perfect recipe to include in your weekend meal prep because it makes for a satisfying, veggie-filled lunch in the days following. Bring on the veggies!
Broccoli Cole Slaw is an easy solution for boosting your intake of veggies.
One of our focuses for 2018, is to share recipes with you that are chock-full of veggies. Jess and I believe that everyone needs more veggies in their life! Mann’s Broccoli Cole Slaw is the perfect solution with endless possibilities. Here are just a few ways I’ve been enjoying Broccoli Cole Slaw:
- Sautéing and adding to scrambled eggs. This is my new go-to breakfast!
- Mixing into salads.
- Making our Creamy Broccoli Slaw with Kale.
- Sautéing in coconut oil or ghee and serving it as a simple side dish.
Here’s a 60-second video to show you just how easy it is to make Egg Roll in a Bowl!
Comfort food with a healthy twist. The best!
In addition to sharing veggie-filled recipes, we’re also all about comfort foods turned healthy and we know you are, too! Egg Roll in a Bowl has all of the fried egg roll flavors we love but it’s made with much less sodium, a considerable amount of veggies and no frying needed. Traditionally, egg rolls are made with ground pork, but we lightened this recipe up and used ground chicken (or turkey) instead. However, if you wish, feel free to use ground pork to really get that traditional egg roll experience.
Coconut aminos instead of soy sauce.
As you saw in the video, one of the ingredients this recipe calls for is coconut aminos. If you have yet to try coconut aminos as a substitute for soy sauce, we recommend that you do. It’s a staple in both of our kitchens and an ingredient we use often. It’s an easy way to greatly reduce sodium, it’s Whole30-friendly, it’s flavorful (doesn’t taste anything like coconut) and it’s made with incredibly clean ingredients (coconut sap and sea salt). Two of our favorite brands are Coconut Secret and Big Tree Farms.
