Quick Lunch Recipes for on the Go!


Ok I will be honest and admit I DO NOT like to cook! So I have actually decided that starting this Sunday I will actually cook alot of meals ahead of time and prepackage them. This will be deter me from eating fast food or eating something that is not healthy for me. I tend to go for convience during the daytime because I am usually in a creative mode of creating my clipart graphics and don’t want to stop to cook! So here are some quick lunch recipes I found for myself that you may also enjoy!
