Eating out quickly racks up costs and calories, they said. Even seemingly healthful restaurant meals―a salad or a kebap sandwich―can be nutritional pitfalls when supersized portions and mystery ingredients factor in. The calorie counts may shock you. But sometimes we don’t care about it, the important is it is enjoyable. With a little planning, it’s easy to transform leftovers into healthy, affordable lunches. With this entry you can compare how our lunch portions stack up―nutritionally and money-wise―to their counterparts at popular chain restaurants.
The lechon paksiw was leftover last Wenesday from our dinner which prepared by my son “Oven Lechon”. And the “kalunay Dinengdeng I just added, because the kalunay leaves was leftover from my lunch last time. I said ! MY LUNCH” because nobody from my two kids eat it just the two of us, hubby and I. I used to cooked vegetables as alternative with meat dishes in this case. simply pure vegetables without meat in it.
To me, Leftovers for Lunch represents one thing we should be thankful for as far as food goes. That is, there is actually leftover food to eat. Most people waste a ton of food every year. I’m as guilty as the next person of that.
Rememebering my mother in-law the time she was with us here in Vienna, she was always telling me…” Sa Pilipinas maraming tao ang nagugutuman, pero dito maraming pagkain ang natatapon…kung malapit lang ang Pilipinas maraming buhay ang matutulungan”!!!
We all know that home made is cheaper than eating out and that’s what I do, except when hubby is here.
One thing I learned about many vegetarians here: they sure love to complain about the lifestyle “they” chose so they can get on their high horse about their superior moral/nutritional/ethical being. The majority of the population are omnivores. So buzz off to your Veggie Times.
