BBQ Meatballs & Quinoa

Easiest Lunch Ever:

This is probably the easiest meal I have ever prepped, although maybe not all that healthy. I had a giant bag of costco meatballs in my freezer and several bottles of BBQ sauce in the pantry, which all needed to be used. I figured I’d just throw it all together and call it a day. I cooked a pot full of quinoa in the rice cooker, added frozen mealballs, and topped with a good bit of BBQ sauce. I didn’t make the BBQ sauce, I didn’t make the meatballs. I didn’t even heat the meatballs up, as they will thaw in the fridge overnight.

How I F*d Up:

Well, I really didn’t with this one. It was delicious as is and all of it was eaten by the end of the week. If I had to nit-pick anything, it would be the lack of variety and veggies. Processed meatballs and bottled BBQ sauce really isn’t healthy. The only complaint from the boyfriend was that a week of quinoa for lunch everyday was too much quinoa.

Suggestions For Improvement:

Cutting back on the portion size of meatballs, BBQ sauce, and quinoa, and adding some kind of steamed or roasted veggie on the side would have provided more variety to the meal and made it healtheir. It would also have cut back the amount of quinoa eaten throughout the week.

Unless trying to use up a bunch of frozen meatballs and BBQ sauce, making homemade meatballs and sauce could be a healthier option, and would probably be even tastier.
