1. Chips and Hummus
This is pretty self-explanatory. Buy some Tostitos (I prefer the Restaurant Style) and Sabra Roasted Red- Pepper Hummus. It’s the perfect on-the-go snack that you can scarf down while switching binders and checking your e-mails.
2. Fruit Salad
Also pretty self-explanatory. I usually throw strawberries, apples, grapes and bananas into a paper bowl and share some with my roommate.
3. Tomato Soup
I don’t think anything is easier than buying tomato soup from Louie’s and heating it up in the microwave. Not even cereal is this easy to make. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper to add more flavor.
4. T.C.M. Sandwich
I’m pretty sure I just made up that acronym, but it makes sense and I like it. A turkey, cheese and mustard sandwich is a light but filling meal that can be made in less than 5 minutes. You don’t need fancy sub-style bread for this, either. Just place the ingredients on white or whole wheat bread (unless you’re me and have to eat rice bread).
5. Cheese Enchilada
Last but certainly not least, a simple cheese enchilada. You may not be able to buy tortillas or sour cream with your meal points, but they are both basic groceries that could last you a while. Sprinkle as much shredded cheese as desired into the tortilla, roll it up, and sprinkle more cheese on top. Microwave for 30 seconds then dip into salsa and/or sour cream.
Being busy doesn’t always have to taste like Nutrigrain bars.
