Every month, we send some of your biggest questions on nutrition, health, and more to our panel of experts to answer. The question, “I often get home late from work totally starving. What should I always have in my kitchen for quick, healthy meals? ” was answered by Keri Glassman, R.D., founder, NutritiousLife.com and author of The New You (and Improved!) Diet.
When you walk in the door hungry, you can toss a mix of legumes and vegetables (defrost frozen ones in the microwave) in a salad with canned salmon or tuna and a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Or layer the veggies on the brown or cauliflower rice and microwave, then top it off with hot sauce. You can also saute the rice with mixed veggies in coconut oil and soy sauce and you’ve got a fast, healthy dinner. Those frozen chunks of fruit? Dessert.
