I’ve been ordering grocery deliveries from Safeway for almost 10 years. It’s ideal for shopping anytime from your couch, rather than spending an hour of precious evening or weekend time pushing your cart through the crowded aisles.
Over the years, Safeway has expanded their line of organic products and healthy options. Their (unprocessed) frozen meals can’t be beat, price wise.
This delectable “Five Grain Beef and Vegetables” dish is $2. Hardly anything costs $2 these days! And for only 290 calories, it actually fills me up.
The fun thing about working in an office is going out to lunch, especially when you work in a thriving foodie corner like San Francisco’s Mission district (see evidence). But working from home presents some lazy lunch temptations. Thinking about my upcoming beach vacation, I decided to trade grilled cheese for veggies…
1. Take a tortilla, spread goat cheese on it, add your veggies of choice and roll it up. I used mushrooms, avocado, tomatoes, spinach and greens. Optional: Cut into 1-inch slices so you can enjoy the pinwheels of colorful veggies and textures.
2. Good news: you can still be lazy about lunch, and eat healthy. This Butternut Squash Ravioli with Walnuts frozen meal from Safeway is low calorie and packed with colorful veggies. The sauce is really good too! If you’re like me and prefer not to microwave plastic, then you can remove the frozen block, put it on a plate and cover it with a bowl. Just decrease the microwave time slightly.
