Dinner for 1? Oh Yes!

Apr 9

For the next week and a half my other half is on the other side of the world visiting China! He’s there for business and that means I’m home alone figuring out what to eat for dinner.

Since Chad is not too keen on stir-fry I’ve found it to be the perfect time to experiment. Stir-fry has always been my go-to, home alone meal. It’s easy, nutritious and delicious – why doesn’t Chad like it – that’s a good question that I wish I could answer!

Anyway, tonight’s meal had to be written about because I made it up on a whim and it ended up being absolutely delicious!

Feel free to use any veggies that you have at home, or pick some up on your way home. This is what I had on hand:

1 yellow onion, sliced

1 zucchini,

half package baby bello mushrooms

2 leaves kale

1 small sweet potato

1 tablespoon ghee

2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Heat ghee in a pan. On medium heat add the onion and sauté for about 5 minutes, add the sweet potato since it takes the longest to get soft, then add the zucchini and mushrooms. Turn the fire to low and add the tamari, sesame oil and apple cider vinegar, mix well. Everything should be combined in one pot, stir frequently so it doesn’t burn. Taste the sweet potatoes; once they soften the dish is ready.

Serve with quinoa, rice, beans, tofu, or eat it plain (that’s what I did!)

Just because I’m home alone doesn’t mean I can’t make a delicious meal for myself, right? Many people think it’s silly to “put in all that work” just for myself. Firstly, it wasn’t a lot of work and secondly I deserve to eat well too, not just when my hubby is home!

Let me tell you something, your diet is just as important as anyone else’s in your family. Often times we get trapped caring for others, and we lose sight of what’s important for ourselves. Take the time to listen, nourish and heal your body. If you don’t, you won’t have a place to live.

Cheers to life.
