Want a healthy, delicious, low calorie meal that will fill you up? Well, here it is.
This is one of our favorite meals. I’ve modified it throughout the years. We seem to keep adding more and more veggies to it and it still turns out perfect.
This makes a lot of food. It’s nice as it keeps in the frig and reheats nicely for lunches. Plus, you can eat a lot for a small bit of calories and come away from the table completely satisfied. Now that’s my kind of meal.
