Leftovers can be a godsend when you are in need of a quick lunch, or dinner for yourself on a night home alone. Just add a few additional ingredients and voila!

When making dinner I almost always make too much. I guess its because I don’t want to run out. I come from a place of abundance, not austerity.  And also, I love to have leftovers for a future meal.

When dining out I often find that I have too much on my plate to finish. One of my lean eating strategies is to only eat half of my protein entree (usually fish). Most restaurants offer an 8 oz. serving when only 3-4 oz. is the amount I need. Remember, the size of a deck of cards! So, I almost always take home my leftovers and re-invent them for a delicious lunch a day or two later.
