Minimal Monday

Naan bread with egg, blue cheese, spinach. A filling, nutritious, and varied lunch that I feel balances all the food groups and nutrients. 🙂

Scallion oil and dried krill make wonderful low-sodium flavour boosters. 🙂 Vermicelli with the root vegetables!

Another naan-omelet lunch – 1 egg and 1 egg white cooked with wilted spinach and cheese inside, wrapped in a soft and fluffy piece of naan bread. Perfection!

Yes, I know – it’s more leftovers. Brown rice, lotus-pork patty, steamed veggies with scallion oil, chicken drummette (last one, I promise) with braised root veggies, and steamed krill eggs. With a side of scholarship forms!
