Hot yoga is one of my favorite things to do. It makes me feel centered and strong. When I hit up a weekday class though, it puts me home much later than usual and means I’m ravenous like a bear just out of hibernation. Quick, filling-yet-light meals are necessary these nights, especially if I don’t have leftovers in the fridge. This week, I made what I expected to be a tolerable meal – edible but best left out of the recipe bank. Score one for me because it actually turned out delicious! To double-check that it was good and my hungry bear-mind wasn’t playing tricks on me, I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day, and it was still delicious. Confidence boost!
I lightly sautéed sweet peppers and ham deli meat in a pan with plain leftover noodles. I added three big spoons of pesto (store-bought). I used a grill pan for some asparagus that I topped with a balsamic glaze (store-bought), sliced kalamata olives and Gorgonzola. Altogether, it took 15 minutes to prepare. To spare my dignity, I’ll just let you guess how long it took to eat. 😉
Enjoy and experiment! You could surprise yourself.
