How To Enjoy Leftovers And Repurpose Into A Brand-New Meal!

I love and do enjoy leftovers. You ever notice how the food taste even better after a day or so of cooking it? This makes putting together a snack, lunch or dinner so much easier.

Enjoying Leftovers.

And, what's even better is knowing how to spruce up leftovers is an innovative and efficient way to lessen food waste and enjoy that delicious meal all over again.

Hi, I’m Donna Williams, Certified Holistic Health Coach, owner and creator of this website, Where I guide my high blood pressure community, especially women of color, seeking to age gracefully, and save themselves from a lifetime of taking unnecessary drugs. Hopefully are opened to making small lifestyle changes that leads to dis-ease free living. You may not need medication after all.

So here are some of the few ways I choose to jazz up my leftovers and help me to control my weight.

Here's How To Enjoy Leftovers Even More!

Using your microwave to heat up our meal is quick and easy, but sometimes the flavor of the food seems to be different.

So, instead of using the microwave, I heat leftovers mostly on the stove or in the oven. There’s so much more freedom in controlling the temperature this way, and I can also add in liquid if I want to add more moisture.

And if you just can't get behind the idea of having the same meal three times in a row, learn to repurpose food into new meals. This allows you to use leftovers in a fresh way. 

For example, depending on what the leftovers are I’ll make soup. Plus, a simmering pot both feeds the appetite and restores your soul. The leftovers from this also freeze well enough to nourish you whenever you need it most. For me soups are filling and warms the inside of the body when feeling a little cold.

Or take those fajitas and turn them into a delicious Mexican spaghetti squash meal. Add a few extra ingredients, a sauce you have on hand, and you have a brand-new meal using your leftovers. 

Also, if you’re heating up something like a veggie burger, using the oven always makes it taste much better. I happen to love this Quinoa Cowboy veggie burger with black beans and roasted corn that is ready under 10 minutes. You can add to your sautéed vegetables, rice or a salad.

These are some of the suggested meal plans that’s within how to overcome high blood pressure online program that makes eating well part of the foundation in achieving normal blood pressure numbers and you feeling even better.

Lets Delve A Little More Into Making Soups From Leftovers

Soup is a versatile dish that can be made from just about anything, including leftovers. Not only is it a great way to use food that might otherwise go to waste, but it's also an easy and healthy meal that can be enjoyed any time of year. 

Here are some tips on how to turn leftovers into a delicious bowl of soup:

creating veggie stock.
  • Start with a base: The first step in making a soup with leftovers is to start with a flavorful base. This can be chicken, vegetable, or beef broth. Add some chopped onions, garlic, and other aromatic vegetables you have on hand, such as carrots or celery. All these seasonings help in the nourishing the body. Sauté them in a little bit of olive oil until they are soft and translucent or just dropped them into the soup-pot after cutting them up.
  • Add in the leftovers: Once you have your base, it's time to add in the leftovers. This can be anything from leftover roasted chicken or beef to cooked vegetables, rice, or pasta.
  • Spice it up: To add some extra flavor to your soup, try adding some spices, and healing herbs. This can be anything from dried herbs like thyme or rosemary to spices like cumin or chili powder. Just taste as you go and adjust the seasoning as needed.
  • Don't forget the liquid: You may need more liquid depending on what you're adding to the soup. This can be broth, water, or even some canned tomatoes. Just be sure to add it slowly and taste as you go to avoid making the soup too watery.
  • Simmer and enjoy: Once you have everything in the pot, it's time to let it simmer. Cook the soup over low heat for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. If you're using raw vegetables, you may need to cook them longer until they are tender.
  • Serve and store: Once the soup is done, serve it in bowls and enjoy. If you have leftovers, store them in the fridge for up to three days.

As you can see you can turn any leftovers into a delicious and nutritious soup with some creativity.

But whatever you decide to do with your leftovers I’m sure it will be great.
