UDON WITH PAN FRIED TOFU AND ASIAN GREENS

For a healthier alternative, use low sodium soy sauce and trade out the udon for soba noodles or glass noodles. Even if you don’t have all the ingredients, you’ll still be able to enjoy this meal. Simply switch out the tofu with a protein of your choice and use spinach instead of Asian greens. To add a little extra flavour, garnish with sesame seeds, green onion, and seaweed.

POACHED EGG AVOCADO TOAST
This may look like a breakfast meal, but this can be had at any time of the day. The three ingredients can be found in your fridge and pantry; eggs, avocado, and bread. That’s it! The trick to having a good poached egg is adding a drop of vinegar to your eggs or the boiling water.
