Since the rest of this week + weekend is pretty much going to consist of meals away from home, I wanted to make a pretty good dent in the veggie drawer for today’s lunch. Nothing is worse than spoiled produce!!
I made another big mixed veggie salad with romaine lettuce, cukes, grape tomatoes, regular tomatoes, broccoli, carrots, dried cranberries, & reduced-fat feta cheese.
However, after putting it all together, I realized I was missing one very important piece to the nutritional puzzle…PROTEIN! Luckily, after scrounging around some of our cabinets, I came across a package of StarKist Chunk Light Tuna in water.
These packages are great for packed lunches. No worries about draining any cans, and everything is ready for you as soon as you open the pouch. Heck, you could eat it right out of the pouch if that’s more your style.
I’m keeping my pouch sealed up right until lunch time, since I don’t want to cause too much “stinky” in the fridge.
I also packed up another delicious honey crisp apple to enjoy with lunch. I still can’t get over just how GOOD these are!!
I’m sure this will be a nice and filling lunch. Mmmmmmm.
Tonight, I’m headed to a retirement party with some of my co-workers, complete with dinner & dancing, so I’m sure it’s gonna be a blasty.
If you happen to swing by the blog later this evening, however, you mayyyy just come across another yummy recipe…I’m just sayin’.
Question for the Afternoon:
What’s your favorite source of protein for a salad?
