Echelon’s Sausage, Pepper, Kale, and Onions Savory Oatmeal

Image
Ingredients:
1/2 Cup Quick Oats
3/4 Cup Bone Broth *Can add more or less for a desired consistency
1 Cup Kale, Chopped
1/2 Cup Green Pepper, Diced
1/2 Cup Onion, Diced
1 Chicken Sausage, Sliced
Olive Oil *enough to coat pan
Salt and Pepper to taste
Egg *Optional
We’re huge fans of breakfast and could honestly eat breakfast for every meal of the day (this recipe makes a great dinner too!). As instructors, we’re always on the go and in need of a breakfast that is quick, easy, and will keep us full. Now typically we crave sweet oatmeal with peanut butter and berries, but every now and then we crave savory oatmeal. What we love most about oatmeal is it is a blank canvas - it will taste like whatever you put in it. Plus, it's super filling! Savory oats are perfect when you have leftover proteins from night before. Don't be afraid to get creative!

Step 1: Prep all ingredients. Dice and chop the vegetables and heat pan on medium heat. Add olive oil to pan. In a separate small pot heat up bone broth to a low boil.
Step 2: Add the peppers to the pan. Shortly after add in the onions and sausage to the pan cook unit brown. Adjust the heat to low and add in the kale. Mix the peppers, onions, and sausage with the kale.
Step 3: Mix the bone broth and quick oats together. We typically just pour the broth into a bowl with the oats and stir. Salt and pepper the oats to taste.
Step 4: Top your oats with the kale, pepper, onion, and sausages from your pan. Option to cook an egg to add to the top of your oatmeal. I like to cook my egg sunny side up.
Step 5: Enjoy!

Echelon’s Greekamole Chicken Burrito Bowl

Image
Image Source: Corona Premier & Echelon
Ingredients (serves 4, plus leftovers!)
1-2 large tomato, diced
1/2 onion, diced
Romaine lettuce, chopped or pre-packaged mixed lettuce
1 can of black olives
1/4 to 1/2 a bundle of cilantro, chopped
Salsa (store bought or homemade)
2-4 peppers, sliced
11 oz of greek yogurt
1 medium-large sized avocado, smashed
1-2 garlic cloves, smashed (added to smashed avocado)
Hot sauce to your liking
brown rice
1 can of black beans
Tortilla chips (Hint of lime brings it home well!)
1 lb. of ground chicken breast

You can include any of the veggies to the person('s) desire in the bowl. We typically go with tomatoes, onions, lettuce (any kind), olives, cilantro, salsa (if we have the time - homemade), peppers (generally jalapenos, but at times habanero or if we really want some heat, scotch bonnets).

The magic is the homemade greekamole: greek yogurt and guacamole mix. We're not huge fans of sour cream and greek yogurt adds more protein to the bowl! Prep an avocado with salt, pepper and smashed garlic. Mix them all together until combined well and still a bit chunky or, if desired, puree to smooth out. Stir plain greek yogurt (around 1.5 - 2 of the 5.3 oz individual servings or we buy the big tub for other meals in place of sour cream). Add the two mixtures together, taste and season with more salt and pepper, if needed, and add (our favorite) hot sauce!

Depending on what we want for carbs, we will use brown rice, hint of lime tortilla chips and/or black beans. Usually it's all of them, but chips sometimes miss the cut.

For the meat we use ground chicken breast. Cook and season with salt and pepper. Let the Greekamole sauce and salsa do the flavoring!

Echelon Go to Lunch Recipe

Image
Image Source: Corona Premier & Echelon

The great thing about eating healthy is that you don't have to be a great cook! Simple is better, which is why this is our go-to lunch.

  • 110g chopped red cabbage
  • 110g chopped green cabbage
  • 30g chopped kale
  • 50g radishes (or another red veggie - tomatoes are good, too!)
  • 50g red or yellow onion
  • 1/2 medium apple, chopped
  • 3oz fully cooked frozen chicken
  • 10g nuts (I like sriracha almonds)
  • Balsamic dressing

You can use a food processor to do the chopping for you - which makes prep quick and easy.

Chop the green and red cabbage and kale together and add to plate. Slice radishes and onion and add to plate. Slice and apple then cut into bite-sized chunks; add to plate. Heat chicken (a couple of minutes in the microwave should do it!) and add to salad, then top with nuts and dressing.

You can make this salad ahead of time, just add a little lemon juice to the veggies (it takes the bitterness out of the kale and keeps the apples from turning brown) and keep the chicken, nuts, and dressing separate.
