We absolutely love hearing all of the ways that our Spoon Crew make Splendid meals your own. From Smoothie Overnight Oats, to Stuffed Peppers, there are no limits to the creativity of our Spooners!
HOWEVER, sometimes we just don’t have time to make a recipe, but you still want to zhuzh up your bowls or Smoothies.
Here are our favorite Meal Hacks that require just one ingredient!
1. Pack in the Protein
One of the most common hacks we hear is to use Splendid bowls as a base, then add your protein of choice! You can use noodles as a base and add salmon, add ground beef or turkey to a Grain Bowl, or add extra tofu for plant-based protein!
2. Spice It Up!
Add your favorite seasoning, like nutritional yeast, everything bagel seasoning, or chili crisps for extra spice!
3. Add Some Crunch
ADD: TORTILLA CHIPS
We have a ton of Latinx inspired meals, like our Green Tomatillo Chili, Tomato Quinoa Chili, Brown Rice Taco Bowl, and Black Bean & Plantain Grain Bowl. Customers LOVE to add tortilla chips or strips to these meals for a salty, satisfying crunch! Or you can flip this hack upside down – use the tortilla chips as a base and make Splendid nachos!
4. Hack Your Smoothies
ADD: A BANANA OR NUT BUTTER
Most people report that they are sufficiently full after drinking a whole Smoothie, but others want them to extend a bit further. Blend your smoothie with a banana or some nut butter to make them even more creamy and filling!
5. EGG-cellent Additions
ADD: EGGS, ANY STYLE
Boy oh boy is this one of the most frequent tips in the Spoon Crew! Add scrambled eggs to your Kimchi Fried Quinoa Bowl, poached eggs to a Soup for a satisfying savory breakfast, or a fried egg to the Kabocha Congee Soup for your new brunch addiction.
