Make Better Food for School or Office Lunch

Real-world assemble-and-conquer strategies

You are about to look at five things from my fridge on Thursday, September 8, 2022. I’ll spin them into a week of lunch ideas at the bottom of this piece.

And though no one is asking you to cook all day Sunday for the week, you do need to project your attention toward future meals. Making a big salad? Instead of taking what you need and letting the rest hide in the produce drawer, prep the entire kit and kaboodle.
