Since I’m traveling this week, no grocery post. Instead I figured I’d ask for your best tips. My mom eats a lot of refined carbs and Lean-Cuisine-style frozen meals for lunch. She’s gained a fair amount of weight and wants to lose some, and also feels like she’s in a total rut on the lunch thing; she used to like the frozen meals but now finds them boring. But at the same time, she doesn’t really like to cook, especially in the summer when it’s really hot here.
As you might see from this info, I don’t eat much like my mom 🙂 We actually have quite different tastes. She doesn’t like salty or strong flavors, and isn’t a huge fan of acid (vinegar, lemon juice, etc) either. She basically likes sweet stuff.
So, when I was trying to come up with some easy, healthy, filling lunch options that don’t require standing over a hot stove, I was struggling! Help my mom out: what are your best ideas that might fit those parameters?
