                    Salad on the Go?

Quick tip: Pack your salad the night before.


Pack your tomato in a separate plastic container. Wrap your lettuce in paper towel. Pack your egg in another larger container. When its lunch time put your parts together. Your salad is  tossed.

Purchase a lunch kit and put a little freezer pack in to keep it cool. You can avoid the work refrigerator nightmares or save time walking back and forth to the  breakroom.

Purchase some ground beef and make your own burger patties. Place them on a microwave baking plate. While they are microwaving sauté some mushrooms. You will be ready to eat a meal quickly.

If you have a lot of time make a dish from scratch and you can have a great meal on days when you are too busy to cook. The video shows getting out my food processor and making spaghetti sauce from scratch. Freeze the extra.

Add a simple olive oil and white vinegar dressing with some salt and pepper. Or add a simple French dressing. I know you are busy.

Take some time and spoil yourself at lunch.  Sit down for your quick salad. Make lunch look great on a glass plate. Fake it with a clear plastic plate for the same pleasure. Have more time one day a week? Put it on a charger plate like my gold charger plate pictured.

Variations on a tossed salad.

Choose your favorite lettuce. It is all right to not always have lettuce. Try fresh tomato in season and a hard boiled egg.
