Having 3 kids, lots of animals including our newest members of our family Sonny and Cher the singing guinea pig duo and working as an RN and a nutritionist requires me to be smart with they types of meals I create. 

I focus on easy meals with minimal steps using ingredients that will support your nutritional needs. Often I cook the same meals during the week for my family especially when I find ones that the kids like. Last week in our veggie box we got a bunch of cilantro and it inspired me to create a one pan meal that would last a few days. 

I love adding cilantro to meals. It has amazing benefits to the body including Vit K, Vit A, magnesium, calcium. It can help with histamine reactions due to it quercetin and can even help rid the body of heavy metals by binding to them in the gut and pulling them out of the system. It is an amazing herb to add into your routine. Here is a little more about cilantro and its benefits. 

You can add rice, quinoa, millet, cauliflower rice, eggs or even avocado to this meal which is what I did for a little yummy fat. 

Cilantro Pork and Veggies

1 lb ground pork

1 cup frozen green beans 

2 zucchini

1 bunch of cilantro 

1 tbs ground ginger

2 tbs coconut aminos

Onion and garlic are always optional. Omit if SCD, or Low FODMAP.

In a saute pan start to brown the pork. Toss in green beans (chop them into inch long pieces if they are not already cut up), dice the zucchini into small cubes and add in. Add onion and garlic if you are including these in your recipe. Finely chop cilantro cutting off the tough ends about 2 inches up. Cook for 5 more min. Add coconut aminos and ground ginger. 

That is it. Cook until all veggies are cooked through to your liking. Serve on cauli rice, with avocado or even on top of a baked sweet potato. 

See seriously easy. I made this while I let my two tiny savages chase chickens around our back yard. It fed this busy mom for about 3 days, and I used it as a main dish as well as a topping. I can't wait to hear how you add this easy meal into your routine.
