I have to pack food often due to food allergies and sensitivities. When we’re on the road for business, I survive by dining on dashboard delicacies. Today we have a veggie platter with celery, carrots, green beans, sugar snap peas, and grape tomatoes.
Next to that on the left is a tri colored rice and kidney bean salad with flat and curly leaf kale, red pepper, white onion, green beans, and sugar snap peas. I seasoned this with mint, lemon verbena, thyme, dill, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and dressed it with lemon juice and coconut amino acids.
I also have a garden salad with tomato, pepper, avocado, and cucumber, and some grapes on the side of that.
It doesn’t take much to make healthy eating realistic, delicious, affordable, and fast. With a few food basics, you can have meals ready to go in 30 minutes or less.
Because I keep a lot of already prepped food on hand like cooked rice, cooked beans, and pre-chopped lettuce, my bagged lunch (featured in the pic at the top) only took about 15 minutes to prep and pack.
I love knowing where my food comes from and how it’s prepared. There’s so much empowerment in plant based, healthy eating!
Here are some more healthy food ideas you can make in under 30 minutes with a rice, beans, and greens base!
