Quick, Easy Lunches


For work and home, I’ve been trying to find quick and easy lunches. I didn’t mind if I’d be eating the same lunch meal at home and then at work. But, I prefer having two different meals to mix it up.

Looking around in my house, I didn’t have much iningredients. Luckily, I had gone grocery shopping a few days before and got some staple items.

I ended up creating two kinds of lunches: Pork Spaghetti and Dumpling Soup.

For the Pork Spaghetti, I took a quarter portion of aΒ pork loin, peas, spaghetti noodles (about half a package), salt, pepper, and Knorr Parma-Rosa sauce. I had enough of this to last me about 3-4 days of work lunches. Here’s what I ended up with:

The Dumpling Soup is like the Tortellini Soup I made a while back, but of course, with dumplings! All you need for the Dumpling Soup are the following:

  • Chicken broth
  • Dumplings and Wontons (I used both because I wanted a variation of flavours)
  • Peas
  • Corn
  • Napa cabbage

To make this, I cooked the dumplings and wontons separately. Then in a separate pot, I boiled the chicken broth with the napa cabbage, peas, and corn, When the broth was done boiling, I added in the cooked dumplings and wontons and let it simmer for about 5-10 minutes to mix the flavours.

I ended up having enough Dumpling Soup to last me 4 days. Quite filling too. The soup tasted much better once it settled in the pot the next day –Β but what soup doesn’t taste better the next day?

So, if you’re looking for quick and easy lunches, the two meals above are quite easy and quick to make. And, it’s enough to last you almost a whole work week!

Let me know what quick and easy lunches you make for work or at home πŸ™‚

Almond gosh! Another pumpkin spice thing?! πŸŽƒ
β €
It's not new but I recently tried @traderjoes' Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage. It's vegan, gluten-free, soy free, and lactose and dairy free.
β €
To be honest, the only pumpkin spice thing I've tried is the drink from Starbucks and I rarely go to Starbucks. This has a strong cinnamon punch. If anything, it should be called 'Cinnamon Almond Beverage' because that's all I taste.
β €
It's not too sweet. It's got a creamy feel and is slightly smooth. You can definitely see the spices in the drink. It's not the greatest but not the worst. It actually grows on you.

Would I repurchase it? Nah. I'll stick to the traditional almond drinks.

I like saving the Earth for future generations and other species a choco-lat more than eating meat πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ°
β €
Had the Chocolate Caramel Cake from @ikeacanada at the end of September. Very rich and definitely hits that sweet tooth! While I've been vegetarian for a bit over a month now, that doesn't mean I can't eat delicious foods. The stigma against vegetarian/vegan food is ridiculous. I've been vegan in the past and I've had just as good vegan/vegetarian food as meat-containing products. If you know how flavours work, then you know how to make something delicious.
β €
Also- I'm not shaming people for eating meat. But, with climate change, it's best if we all eat meat a little less. The carbon footprint in the meat industry is a great one and we all can do our part. Have Meatless Mondays, or make it a habit to make at least one meatless meal a day.
β €
Climate change is natural phenomenon. It will happen and has happened before. BUT, it's the rate that it is occurring at which is the problem. Humans and other species on this Earth will not surviveβ€”the Earth will and adapt. So, let's try and keep the Earth habitable for all the babies and their future kids, and all the other species.

There's nothing fishy about these golden filets 🐟
β €
Before I went vegetarian, I RARELY ate fish. The main fishes I ate were tuna and eel. But I've had fish and chips before, so I know what to compare when trying out the @garden Golden Filets.
β €
Maybe because of the grease, it really gave off that fishy, seafood smell I've encountered with fish and chips here. But after a while, it subsided and I was able to enjoy it. The soy taste isn't as prominent in this as other Gardein products but you can still see that because of it, the texture isn't the same. However, it is a good alternative for new vegans/vegetarians that cut out fish.
