I love leftovers too! I prefer to eat cold lunches or eat my food cold because I don't yet know about the availability of a microwave. Veggies and hummus is my go to snack along with string cheese! I really love Ezekiel Bread and hard boiled eggs too, maybe with an avocado! Yum. I also love a spicy tuna sandwich with lots of pickles and jalapenos. Never tried any of the flavored tunas but they seem great over salads.
I am looking for more recipes for cold pasta salads. One of my favorites is chopped kale, chopped broccoli, chopped chicken, halved cherry tomatoes, and any cut of whole wheat pasta with mozzarella cheese, mixed with a good heap of pesto and olive oil. Sometimes I buy a rotisserie chicken to throw in there instead of boiling my own to save time. This will usually last me 2-3 meals plus a serving to eat once I finish making it.
I plan on dropping by Sam's for prepackaged servings of nuts and maybe granola or low fat protein bars and string cheese. Do you have any other dry snacks to recommend? I think my biggest challenge will be getting in a hearty breakfast. My plan is to make egg muffins - I usually crack 12 eggs into a bowl and season with salt and pepper, then add chopped broccoli, tomatoes, green onion and spinach. Place in muffin tins and bake for 20 mins or so. Of course I have to do this all on a Sunday because I am not a morning person. A whole grain waffle seems like a good option too because I can grab it and eat it while i'm driving, that's why I need other breakfast options aside from my egg muffins lol.
I was thinking of buying a low fat protein shake for mornings that i'm running late - do you have any recommendations or do you make your own shakes?
Thanks you so much, I am excited to see what's in store!
