The Number of the Day is... 2!

I recently had a rather lengthy dispute with a friend who complained about "not having time to make their own breakfast or lunch," and then getting stuck eating something unhealthy. The conversation eventually led to me asking, realistically, how much time could you devote to putting together your own breakfast/lunch, to which the response was 2. 2?! Yes, 2! 2 minutes per meal... may seem like an impossible task, but Tiny Tummy doesn't know the word impossible, so challenge, accepted! So, here are 2 options for Under 2 Minute Grab and Go Meals for breakfast and lunch.

Breakfast Option #1: PB+Banana+Whole Grain Bread:

I would say toast, but 2 minutes doesn't exactly allow for toast. This one should be fairly self-explanatory, but slice your banana, shmear your PB on the bread (yep, I said shmear!), add the banana slices, and if you have time to spare, slice that puppy in half!

Breakfast Option #2: Oatmeal

While I'm all for making your own slow-cooking oats, to fit our 2 minute requirement, I'm opting for the 100 calorie oatmeal packs that cook in 1-2 minutes. Simply add the recommended amount of water (or milk), microwave, and you're good to go. If you can spare those extra few seconds, stir in some cinnamon, or whip of one of these delicious options.

Lunch Option #1: Spinach+Tuna Salad

I know this may seem like a no duh, but how hard is it to grab a bag of pre-washed spinach, open a can of tuna, and toss in whatever dressing you'd prefer? (Walden Farms Honey Mustard or Bacon Dressing are both great options!)

Lunch Option #2: Turkey+Spinach+Cheese Rolls Ups

It's as simple as this. Grab some turkey slices, spread a little Laughing cow cheese in each slice, add some spinach, and roll them up. See how many you can make in two minutes! I bet it is the perfect portion for lunch! Pin It
