Luckily, nature's been thoughtful about us hurried ones and designed a fruit that's perfect in these situations: the banana. It has a handle, it lends itself easily to being consumed on the go and thanks to its incorporated wrapper it's entirely messless. The banana is also a great source of Potassium, Manganese, Vitamin B6 and fiber. I am a fan.
Alas, yesterday I didn't have a banana. Instead, I went for a quick grilled meal for lunch and an exotic soup for dinner. I have to admit, having soup is when I miss bread the most...
A fitting lunch-in-front-of-the-computer: grilled chicken with grilled asparagus and fresh cucumber.
Don't forget about the ginger tea! I could sit here and rhapsodize about the benefits of ginger tea, but I'll keep the mystery for now. It looks damn pretty though.
Ginger-orange carrot soup. That's all I'm going to say.
The orange-carrot soup is made with Chardonnay, which also gives it a tangy taste. It's not for everyone. The orange flavor is very strong and granted, the idea of orange soup is a little strange. But the sour cream definitely makes it a winner.
