Hard-boil a dozen eggs to eat throughout the week.
Make a big batch of a simple trail-mix: start with one nut and one dried fruit and go from there…add what you like!
Instant oatmeal with a handful of trail-mix and/or a swirl of jam.
Make a big pasta salad to eat cold: Shell pasta, olives, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, italian dressing.
Make a big lentil salad to eat cold.
Get a crock-pot and make a stew. This is a good one if you eat meat. Vegetarian? My favorite soup is onion, garlic, kale, potato, tomato, carrot, red pepper, cube of veggie bullion – just add the kale at the very end.
Stock up on baby carrots, apples and tangerines. Raspberries, blueberries, figs. Good quick snacks to go along with hard-boiled eggs.
Make a plate of apples and cheddar. Too overwhelmed to slice it up? Just grab a whole apple and a chunk of cheese.
Slice up a big batch of red bell peppers and cucumbers to dip in hummus.
Toast all day. I mean the bread kind. But go for it with the champagne too if need be!
Take a bag of pre-washed arugula. Top it with a drained can of tuna, some capers, balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
If you are up for it you can make a big frittata and eat slices of it over a few days.
Water, water, water.
