Valentines’ Day gives us that chance to warm the heart in the midst of this chilly season. And, cooking together is a ‘sport’ that couples can easily engage in to connect and put a wholesome meal on the table – or in this case – in the lunchbox.
See how this couple livened up the brown-bag lunch by cooking together to make satiating beefy salads that keep hunger at bay and provide a substantial contribution of iron, vitamin B12, quality protein and zinc.
“In a recent career change, I go to the office just about every day of the week. I decided to bring lunches but quickly got bored of my routine, needing more variety and most importantly good taste!
So with my wife Lise, we started to research on-line and discovered The Girl On Bloor, Taylor Stinson, https://thegirlonbloor.com.
Taylor had great recipes and tips to create healthy and delicious portable lunches – the first recipe I tried was Big Mac in a Jar. This recipe has lots of veggies, plus protein and was very tasty. I was hooked!
I signed up to her newsletter and I am trying amazing recipes every week. Being empty nesters, my wife of 33 years and I dove in planning our lunches. This is a fun way to spend time together and the plus side is we have great lunches to bring to work. It’s the practical side of romance!”
