I used to dislike eating leftovers for lunch the next day. To me, every single meal is so precious, that I actually refer to every meal as a “credit” and treat each individual “credit” as an opportunity to try something new.
However, while it would be great to have a total food experience at each meal, that’s not always the case, as things like our schedules take control and we’re left scarfing down a slice of pizza or a protein bar on our way in between meetings.
The solution? LEFTOVERS.
Especially because I cook all the time for this blog, I always have leftovers. Lu used to get bummed out when he’d see something I posted on Instagram and then come home only to see that it wasn’t saved in the fridge. I would give it away to the doormen, thinking, “I don’t want to eat this again for dinner! I want something new!”
Now I’ve smartened up, or maybe I’ve just gotten busier and now appreciate leftovers. However, certain spiralized meals don’t make great leftovers. Have you seen my meal planning post?
These are meals that work well as dinners and can be saved (so make extras!) for lunch the next day, whether you’re bringing it into an office or reheating it at home.
