Sausage Veggie Scramble

I think having fresh veggies on hand makes planning healthy meals so much easier. Plus, I want to use the veggies before they go bad, so I’m much more likely to enjoy a meal featuring the nutrient-rich goodies so I do not have to throw away food.

For today’s lunch I prepared portobello mushrooms, yellow squash and Aidells organic chicken sausage on the griddle to create a sausage veggie scramble.

A bed of steamed broccoli served as the base for my lunch, which I shook up to evenly distribute all the different yummy flavors.

I loved the slight (and I mean slight) spiciness from the sausage. It took this plain and simple lunch to another level.

Do you eat more fresh or frozen produce?

I definitely eat more fresh produce. I was actually shocked to find that fresh veggies and fruit go on sale all the time. I generally buy whatever food is on sale at the moment to save money. Certain fruits like raspberries and blueberries I typically buy frozen though since they seem to cost and arm and a leg year round.


Tonight is my company’s holiday party. I am picking Ryan up before heading out for cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres at a local trendy wine bar.

Should be fun!

Does your company have a holiday party?

I actually planned the holiday party at my first job right out of college. I loved every minute of it! I had everyone submit an unknown fact about themselves and then we read them aloud and people shouted out who they thought the fact was about.

It was really interesting and made you realize just how little you know about some of the people you work with every day. We learned one girl was in a movie with Burt Reynolds when she was younger. Neat, huh?

What’s a fun fact about you?
