Therefore, there are no special trips to the store and this is so inexpensive to make. Makes 2 servings.

Samantha Lynch is a Registered Dietitian living in Vero Beach, FL after spending 13 years in New York City. Even though she traded the big city for the beach, life with two young children, running her own business and keeping a very busy social life leaves little time to prepare elaborate healthy meals. One of the biggest challenges was finding local restaurants with healthy options for delivery or pick-up. If she doesn’t bring lunch with her to the office in the morning, she has to rely on her stash of snacks or worse yet, not eat. Therefore, with nutrition in mind she started making quick healthy meals with items she always had on hand. And she always make a few extra portions for herself and the kids for the next day. Even with food costs going up, she has saved her and her family a lot of money from making food at home. Connect with Samantha on her website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
