It’s not always easy to eat healthy when you work 8ish-5ish in an office, but it’s doubly important to, especially if you’re sitting on your butt in front of a computer all day, like I am. I’ve got a few good standby healthy lunch formulas, but the weather’s super cold now, and salads aren’t always going to cut it. I’ve become a big fan of these boxed soups (roasted red pepper and butternut squash are my favorites) because they’re quick, they’re easy, and they’re super easy to embellish. It’s kind of like, with a sandwich, you’re painting on a bread canvas. With a salad, you’re painting with a canvas of leafy greens. And with these soups, you’re painting on a canvas of pureed vegetables!

Or… maybe not everyone reduces things to art metaphors?
