Sauted Spinach & Veggies

This recipe was inspired by my most recent favorite channel I’ve added to my YouTube subscription. I recently checked out Yami Mufdi’s YouTube channel after following her on Instagram for a while and I’ve been loving her videos as she prepares for her next show. I’m kind of at an in between point with my fitness goals and what I’m working towards, and I’m looking for new inspirations, and seeing her persevere through her meal plan while while sticking to some intense workouts makes me feel like I can do anything.

She shared this dish in a video a few weeks back and for some reason it sounded delishes! I’ve been trying to keep my diet pretty clean – with the exception of pumpkin spice anything – and eat more whole foods than I had been during the month of September. I find that if I stick to eating “clean” and preparing all of my meals myself, I can easily stick to my macros while also meeting fitness goals. This recipes consists of mostly fresh foods with the exception of a veggie burger which can be replaced with an alternative protein that is more whole.

what you’ll need

  • 1.5 C spinach
  • g mushrooms
  • 1 Morningstar veggie burger – or protein of choice – chicken or turkey would be good
  • red bell pepper
  • garlic salt
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • non-stick spray

Prep any veggies that may need to be. I sliced the mushrooms and bell pepper before beginning anything else. For my recipe, I used a Morningstar veggie burger so I simply popped it into the microwave for about a minute and a half then sliced it into smaller pieces. If you’re using chicken or another meat be sure to cook it thoroughly. This recipe would work well with any leftover chicken you may have in the fridge.

Place a large pan over medium heat and spray with non-stick spray. Add the mushrooms and bell pepper along with a small amount of garlic salt and a few crush red pepper flakes for spice. Stir around in the pan until the veggies are cooked to your liking. Add in the spinach and veggie burger. Let cook until the spinach is wilted. Serve right away!

Calories and macros for mine: 123kcal/11C/11P/4F. Calories and macros are always subject to the ingredients you choose to use and recipe is no exception. If you use chicken or turkey in place of a veggie burger then the carb and protein macros will vary from mine. I’m currently on my journey to eating chicken again, and I definitely could have made this with some grilled chicken if I were short on carb macros.

Happy Friday! Thanks for reading
