Cook Once – Eat Twice with Seasoned Cauliflower Rice

There’s a secret to quick and easy homemade lunches and dinners.  It is “cook once – eat twice”.

I try to create nutritious recipes that will feed 4-6 people.  Since there are only two people in my household I always have leftovers.  That way I can use those leftovers for additional meals.

As an example of cook once – eat twice, one night this week I made Seasoned Cauliflower Rice with a spinach and pesto stuffed pork lion and brown rice with salsa.   This may sound fancy but really it only took 20 minutes to prepare and 30-40 minutes to cook.  It was really yummy.

The next day I made this gorgeous salad for lunch with all leftovers.

It took me 5 minutes to put together, it was packed with nutrition, tasted amazing and looked very pretty.  No boring lunches for this girl.  It was so good!

Continuing on my cook once – eat twice belief, dinner that night was warmed leftover rice and pork loin, served with a Tower Garden salad and pears for dessert.

Day number three I used the rest of the seasoned cauliflower rice to make soup for dinner.  I added chicken broth and Pecorino Romano cheese to the cauliflower rice and served it with a Tower Garden salad and watermelon for dessert.

Can you tell I LOVE food!  And my cook once – eat twice way of cooking makes dining and eating a pleasurable event for me.  And after I eat, I expect to feel amazing and energized.  I really dislike that heavy feeling I can get if the food is not prepared well.
