No Time? No Problem! – A Quick Healthy Meal On-The-Go!

2015-08-16 17.45.15Who says you can’t eat healthy at a live professional sports game? I suppose having media credentials and treating all facility staff with the utmost kindness and respect allows me to bring my snack bag into each game, but hey, I’ll take it!

This is something I threw together in less than 7 minutes! I honestly didn’t know what I was going to take to the game, I just knew I had to pack SOMETHING–or else! I opened the refrigerator and made this up on the fly. Here are the ingredients.

1/2 c. Brown rice

1/2 c. Organic baby spinach

1/3 c. English cucumber (with peel)

1/2 can Albacore tuna fish (canned in water)

1/4 c. Chopped carrots

1 Tbsp. Italian dressing

Layer the ingredients in your to-go dish, pop the top on, throw it on an ice pack, and GO! Oh, don’t forget your fork.

SODIUM ALERT! SODIUM ALERT!
Yikes! This meal has more sodium than I thought. Low sodium alternative: ditch the dressing and use a little extra virgin olive oil and fresh lemon or lime juice. Also, see if you can find some low sodium or no salt added albacore tuna.
