The protein bars were a processed, sugary disaster.
The peanut butter sandwiches were a calorie nightmare.
Turkey cold cuts had slime, chemicals, and sodium. Plus I had to keep them iced.
Soy "meat" was high in salt and too processed, not to mention its tendency to soak men's systems with estrogen.
So I finally found something I can make Sunday night and have enough for my work week. I make a huge salad of quinoa and lentils, about 6 cups or so, then drench with a Trader Joe's 12-ounce jar of bruschetta, add Italian or cilantro dressing and top with sliced almonds.
I dish out about 1.5 cups into a Pyrex bowl, bring a spoon, an apple and a tangerine, and I'm ready to go to work without starving.
