Ever have those days when you’re so hungry but nothing sounds good? I have those days way too often. Most of the time (in my case) it’s not that nothing sounds good but that nothing healthy sounds good. When I’m super hungry because I missed a meal or missed snacks, my body starts to crave the unhealthiest things.
Like Chinese food–lo mein noodles, orange chicken and egg rolls dipped in soy sauce! Yum!
A few weekends ago we stayed at an Extended Stay America Hotel. It was a busy weekend for us, we had 2 football games in one day, one during the morning and one at night. We had a plate sale going on and of course keeping up with all the kids. I didn’t pack any snacks or proteins shakes and I could feel the hangry-ness coming on!
Luckily, our room had a fully equipped kitchen, complete with utensils, pots and pans and a full size fridge and dishwasher. I ran to the store to pick up a few ingredients that would help satisfy my craving for chinese food in a healthier way.
And so, the Easy Egg Roll In A Bowl Recipe made it’s way into our meal rotation, because it’s really, really good!
Salt & Pepper & Garlic Powder to taste
1 lb ground sausage
1 bag dry coleslaw mix
Optional Ingredients: I just used the ingredients above but I know adding in the soy sauce, onion and ginger would make it a bit better!
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon ginger
sliced green onion
- In a large skillet, brown sausage.
- Once sausage is cooked through, add dry coleslaw mix to skillet and the soy sauce and ginger.
- Stir to combine for 3-5 mins.
- Season with salt and pepper. Top with green onion.
That’s it! Super easy, right? My husband and I really loved this simple recipe.
It’s a perfect recipe when cooking away from home because you can keep it as simple as 2 ingredients- the ground sausage and coleslaw mix and adding salt & pepper to taste. This recipe is low carb and satisfying and it kept me out of the fast food lane. Sorry Panda Express!
We used our weekend staycation to hang out as a family. We hung out in our huge room, swam at the pool and relaxed. It was a nice and cheaper way to recharge as a family.
If you’re traveling soon consider staying at Extended Stay America. The full kitchens can help you eat healthier and hopefully pack on less pounds this holiday season!
