Ever since I started working from home at the start of the year, 2 perks I have enjoyed are:
- A flexible work schedule:
- Not packing lunches
These days I take a much more methodological approach to lunch called “Winging it” (insert sarcasm ;)). Despite having a fully-fledged kitchen at my disposal, my lunches now are probably even quicker and more basic than before. I usually work out right before lunch so I just want to eat ASAP. As long as we’re well-stocked with healthy ingredients, I can usually almost come up with something decent and quick…otherwise there’s always eggs!
After my run on Monday, I had pizza on the brain. While there’s no chance I’d whip up a homemade base in the middle of the afternoon, I managed to satisfy my craving with Pizza Toast i.e. all the flavors of pizza without the necessary labor. For the sake of sounding fancy, let’s call it a Pizza Tartine instead.
I told you my lunches were basic…so basic that I was hesitant to even blog about it. However because it was one of those “This is too delicious to not post about” lunches, here goes:
Pizza Tartine – serves 1
- 2 slices wholegrain bread, toasted (I used rye)
- 3-4 tablespoons Marinara sauce
- 2-3 tablespoons grated cheese (I used cheddar)
Spread marinara sauce across toast, top with cheese. Grill in the oven till the cheese has melted.
Especially after a weekend of non-stop eating out, it was nice to nutritiously satisfy the craving. Who says pizza and unhealthy always go hand-in-hand?
What’s for lunch today?
