I always hear people complain about how expensive and time consuming eating healthy is. The truth is that it’s actually not. Buying processed foods winds up being more expensive and there are nutritious healthy meals you can make that take you just as long as it takes you to go through a drive through and get home.
Here is a quick lunch idea that is a nutritious AND delicious meal that also happens to be vegetarian, as well as gluten, dairy and egg free.
