This section is for emergencies. It's dinnertime, you have nothing prepared, no plan and no idea what to fix. You are inches away from ordering pizza or going to the closest drive-thru. But...you promised Dr. Carling and yourself that you would take good care of your body. Following are some bare bones guidelines for how to come up with a quick, nourishing, delicious meal out of thin air (almost...I'm not quite that good. You do have to have some semblance of ingredients on hand).
Your goal is to produce a meal containing at least two vegetables (one cooked and one raw), a protein and optionally a carb (starchy food like potatoes, grains, winter squash).
This section is under construction.
