Make it Mondays: 4 Healthy, ShowStoppin' Sides

Breakfast: Heather's Spelt English Muffins
Lunch: Acorn Squash French-fries
Dinner: Roasted Broccoli 
Snack: Roasted Maple Coconut Almonds

Lately, I have been eating a lot more on the go. The business has been exciting in terms of my career, yet far less exciting in terms of my meal planning. In other words, in the past few weeks, there hasn't been a single time in which I have have laid down a marvelous entree onto a pre-set table and enjoyed a delicious meal. Rather, my dinners have turned into quick breaks away  from my computer, in which I lean over my kitchen island, eat a turkey burger, and  flip through the closest magazine in reach.

One surprising aspect of this "life frenzy" is, however,  how little I've ordered take-out. In the past, when I was very busy, I would order take-out 24/7. Yet, I have continued to  eat 80% of my meals at home. This is due in large portion to the show-stoppin' sides I have been whipping up quickly to pair with  my meals. After all, there are just so many times you can get excited about a turkey burger on its own. So without further ado, here are the sparkling side dishes that have kept my meals exciting...

These sides are loaded with veggies & protein, are easy to make, and don't require a lot of ingredients. They are, however, GAME CHANGERS!

These English muffins will make the everyday egg-whites a lot more exciting, while the roasted broccoli is the best I ever had.  I mean, I don't typically eat a whole head of broccoli in one sitting, but with this particular recipe I do. As far as the acorn squash fries go,  I promise you that you will no longer be craving a soggy carton of fries from your local fast food place after trying these. And what's easier than storing a mason jar of almonds in your car's cup-holder to avoid stopping at the tempting take out places?

I hope that this particular "Make it Monday" has inspired you to be more creative with your dinner tonight. And now for your Monday dose of inspiration inspired by the Golden Globes (which I watched while eating a turkey burger & squash fries)...

Create a delicious Monday everyone!
