"Grilled Veggies"

If you want to get the most from your eight ounces of cooked vegetables, don't boil them, it causes them to absorb water, bake them, it dries them out. (Hat tip to my sponsor)

Spray a pan and place mixed sliced veggies in. I like to use mushrooms, eggplant, onion, and peppers. Bake at 350 for a long time. Season with salt pepper, garlic salt, paprika. Yum!

Microwave Eggs

Lately, instead of taking cooked eggs to work, I take them raw and microwave them at the office. 
Spray a microwave container with pam, sprinkle with spices crack eggs into the container and take with you.  I have a cooler bag with ice that I keep it in.   At work I cook it in the microwave for 1 minute and 10 seconds. It is a lot better then eating cold eggs.

Note: egg yolks can pop while cooking, cover or prepop it.

Squash Tomato Soup

Cook onions, carrots and squash in a pan till soft. Weigh out 4 ounces and put it in a small crock pot with 4 ounces of cooked tomatoes and 4 ounces of cooked barley. Add a cup of water. Cook on low all day. Season with salt, pepper, garlic, curry or chili powder to taste.

You can also add your 4 ounces of meat and one more cup of water.

Mushroom Barley Soup

Bake in a roasting pan:
Lots of mushrooms and onions for about an hour at 350.

Measure out 8 ounces and put it in a small crock pot with 4 ounces of cooked barley and a cup of water before you leave for work and you will come home to a pot of yummy soup. Season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

If you want a bigger pot of soup, you can put in your 4 ounces of cooked meat and another cup of water. It is very satisfying, but you don't get your separate protein.
