2. Select your protein (1/4 cup):

– Canned or cooked black beans
– Canned or cooked lentils
– Raw textured soy protein chunks or bits
– Veggie ground round
– Diced veggie hot dogs

3. Select your starch (as indicated):

5. Layer your selections in food
thermos (not a flask, but rather one
of the wide mouthed food thermoses).

6. Fill remaining space with boiling
water and seal lids tightly.

Several hours later, enjoy for lunch,
no micro waving or reheating necessary.

Here are some of my favorite combos:
a) The No Prep Instant Lunch: instant
bouillon power, textured soy protein, frozen chopped
spinach, couscous.
b) A Grate Soup Lunch: instant
bouillon powder, grated carrot,
grated potato, slaw mix, chickpeas.
c) Leftovers Made Good: leftover
cooked lentils, leftover cooked
barley, frozen spinach, grated parsnip.
