Cupboards Empty? Think Outside the Lunch Box.

Cupboards Empty? Think Outside the Lunch Box.

I had no ideas for lunch today. I’m not a fan of grocery shopping, and I confess that I usually wait until the last minute to re-stock my kitchen.

I decided to throw a bunch of stuff in a bowl with some olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and see how it tasted. This is what I ended up with (tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, mozzarella, butter beans, albacore tuna). Not half bad!  And full of protein and fiber to keep me full for hours.

The point is, take-out isn’t the only option when you think you have no food.  Before you reach for that frozen pizza, look in your pantry, and get creative with combinations of healthy ingredients.  You may be surprised with the results.
