Spring Bulgur recipe idea

Good evening ladies!

Hope everyone had a great day. Just one more day and then we are off for a long weekend..Yay! I have a lot of stuff on my plate, but we will think about that later.

Food recap:

This morning started off with some Granola with reduced fat milk and banana


Lunch was a Cauliflower and Potato veggie over brown rice, topped with some yogurt and cilantro + red chili flakes!


Snack 1:



I love you Mango!


A veggie salad with some Kale chips and ketchup!


That about rounds up todays eats! But I have a recipe idea to share! I made this bulgur recipe thinking about Spring and it turned out so good, that the husband ate almost the entire thing only sparing some for my lunch tomorrow!


I just used some stuff that I had on hand!

1 cup Bulgur cooked

5-6 Asparagus cut into about an inch and a half long pieces

8-9 cherry tomatoes

½ medium onion chopped

2 garlic cloves chopped



Basil to garnish ( I did not add but I am sure it will taste fantastic)

Cook bulgur.

To a skillet add EVOO, onion, garlic, and the veggies. Fry until soft.

Add the Bulgur and season.

Simple and easy!
