Fast Food

I'm back from vacation and movin and groovin to the daily 9-5 gind. Life is busier than ever, what with me taking a college class for the next 6 weeks. Not sure what I was thinking when I signed up. I already have my B.S. in Journalism, but since I work at a university I get free classes.

Also, I'm still training for the 5k (coming up April 24). My training and studying will all be in the evenings after work, so I've been trying to come up with quick and nutritious meal ideas for dinner.

So far, I've come up with...Sandwiches. I love hot sandwiches and they are so fast. My first idea (sorry, no picture) is a grilled cheese and spinach sandwich. Prepare it like a regular grilled cheese, but throw on a hefty handful of spinach. It's perfecto! Especially dipped in some Red Roasted Pepper and Tomato Soup by Pacific Natural Foods. Yummm!

Are you looking for some quick meals? Check out this nifty tool from Real Simple: Dinner in 15 minutes flat. This tool will help you come up with some fast meals using some of the ingredients you already have at home!

I also want to point you in the direction of Sam Zien's Just Cook This on Discovery Health (also on Fit TV). He has some great meal ideas that are super fast. I am especially excited to try his Chimichito recipe.

What are some of your favorite fast meals?

Have a great Tuesday.

  1. Great ideas! I feel like any sandwich grilled/made into a pannini instantly becomes gourmet :)
