there are few things i dislike as much as consuming crappy food that i was forced into buying by my own hunger.
so, how do i avoid being circumstance's pitiful sucker? i plan ahead and pack a lunch!
ok. maybe you aren't going to collect any street cred by carrying around a lunch bag with you in public. but think about how adversive you'll look sitting in that mall/park/wherever, and eating your delicious lunch in front of envious losers who got a sad bagel from tim horton's.
that makes you a f@$%-ing gangster.
|yellow beets!? purple carrots!?|
what does it all mean!?
i think i kept it pretty real with a 'yellow beet, apple, goat cheese, and honeyed-walnut' salad. (also dubbed the 'throw-all-the-crap-you-have-in-your-fridge-on-top-of-some-mixed-greens' salad).
i roasted, peeled, and julienned the beet... sliced an apple... threw some walnuts and honey in a warm pan for a couple minutes... and crumbled some goat cheese.... all on a bed of mixed greens and herbs... into one of those handy-dandy little kitchen items called "tupperware".
you can also take another little container and put some home-made vinaigrette in it to dress your salad later (otherwise it gets soggs). vinaigrette: honey, dijon, lemon, balsamic, olive oil, salt, pepper
|close the lid, and away we go!|
*i sealed the small pot of vinaigrette to the left with
plastic-wrap and a tight elastic band....it worked!
better than a bagel.
