As many of you know, I have a fantastically busy schedule. Multiple workouts per day. Multiple tutoring sessions. Homework of my own. Somewhere in there I have to fit in a meal or two. If I don’t plan ahead and make lunch to bring with me, I won’t eat. If I don’t eat (1) I am a miserable person to deal with and (2) I don’t have enough energy to get myself through everything.
Needless to say, I have to plan ahead to get things done. I don’t like to eat the same thing over and over again, so I have to get a little creative. I had mentioned in an earlier post that I would be posting lunch box-friendly recipes, and I don’t want to disappoint.
Here is something I came up with last week:
Ground Beef, browned and seasoned
Red onion, chopped
Shredded cheddar cheese
1. Line the bottom of a Tupperware with the ground beef.
2. Add the black beans on top, followed by the onions, cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce.
3. When you are ready to eat it, shake it all up and enjoy!
This was a nice little change-up from the regular old salads and lettuce wraps I had been eating. This is also great with a shredded chicken that I will post about a little later. Any ideas for other lunch box friendly recipes?
