I cook for two here ..me and hubby but a lot of what I cook is easily adjusted to one person as yourself. AND~~ lol~~ there is NOT a heck of a lot of cooking and pots and pans to a lot of what I do because I believe in simple and easy!
Even though we are both retired, hubby and I still would rather be out doing other things than stuck in the kitchen for hours.
Skinless, boneless. chicken breasts can be your best friend here. Especially when we are headed off with our trailer...I cook ahead as many of these as I can and bag them and freeze them cooked. You can do so much with chicken so you are never at a loss for something to use if they are ready. In your case take a cooked frozen one out of the fridge before going to work and leave to thaw.
On the way home from work pick up one of those prepared caesar salads and a kraft no fat caesar drsg
At home...cut up and weigh out 100 grams of your chicken breast ...place salad on a plate...sprinkle the cut up chicken over the top...add croutons...and squeeze on the drsg... ..
( depending on how much drsg you like...you could have as much as 5 Tbsp of this to reach 100 calories!! )
I bulk this up more by adding cut up cucumber, carrot matchstixs, and celery, as well as extra lettuce sometimes.
Also I sometimes eliminate the croutons and instead weigh out 20 grams of Dorito's Hot Chili Heat tortilla chips which will equal 100 calories the same as your croutons would have...but the chips give the salad a bit of zing!
SO~~ Salad and salad bits = 100 calories
Chicken = 100 calories
Croutons or Chips = 100 calories
Caesar Drsg = 100 calories
Totally Awesome Meal = 400 calories!
Try it! You'll like it!
