Tonight’s dinner, as you can see from the picture above, was amazing! This recipe came from eMeals clean eating meal plan for 2 from last week. It was listed under their super fast options, which are good for me this week since I am working longer days so I decided to give it a go! I like the 2 servings because I can take the other half for lunch the next day so I’m not wasting food. If you try this out, let me know what you think in the comments! This recipe was FANTASTIC and I can’t wait to make it again! Thank you eMeals!
