Lazy Lunch for Less Than $1.50

February 14th, 2015 at 08:24 pm

DH is out of town, which means lots of salads & sandwiches for me. I like them, and I LOVE the fact that they result in little cleanup work.

When he leaves, I buy a 6-pack of romaine hearts and other salad fixings (other veggies, tuna, dressing, etc) so that I know I can always throw together a quick salad even when I come home from work tired and not wanting to cook.

Today's lunch was salad (romaine heart + tomato + yogurt caesar dressing) plus a whole grain bread round with margarine & a nice dollop of Sarabeth's.

No protein (except for the teeny amount in the yogurt dressing) because I had a salmon patty for breakfast, I'll grab a handful of raw almonds for an afternoon snack, and I'll probably have sardines for dinner.

As you can see, I'm not a big meal planner other than to make sure I have things on hand that fit with my lazy home "cook" (or perhaps I should say little or NO cook) mindset.

Eating economical and healthy foods at home can be done without much work and with just a bit of advance planning, even if cooking is not your "thing"!

    haha. You sound like me! I secretly LOVE that when my fiance goes away on business I don't have to get fancy with the meal planning. I can just eat something simple - not that I have to make something fancy when he's around, but I generally at least make a legitimate "meal" - rather than a bowl of cereal or some rice with whatever random odds and ends I find in the fridge. lol. Brings me back to the simple days of living on my own Smile

    Although you claim to not be a meal planner, you plan enough ahead so you have things you can "throw together" so you can eat well. Well done!
