I was out for an appointment today and got stranded; picked up these two little containers at the dollar store, then got some veggie sushi and watermelon at the grocery store. Yum!

In school today for some summertime IT training! Packed in my Planetbox Shuttle: make-ahead quinoa salad, grapes and lentil chips. I am finding I enjoy dividing up the littler compartment with the dipper container. I can pack right-sized portions of a fruit and a treat.
The quinoa salad is super-easy. I keep several varieties of canned beans flash-frozen in the freezer, which makes it even easier. Just cook 1 cup of dried quinoa as directed on the package and let it cool. Meanwhile, get four jars and put about 3 spoonfuls of salad dressing in each. When the quinoa has cooled, divide it up, stir and toss in 1/2 cup beans of your choosing. That's it! On eating day, just put some greens in your lunch container, dump on your quinoa salad and go!
