For the other part of the cooking demo I wanted to give them something they would easily be able to make and bring for a healthy lunch to work. I decided on another recipe I have made before from off of Pinterest that was easy to make on Monday morning and save in containers in the fridge and freezer for the rest of the week. I choose this recipe also because every ingredient is a super food from off of The World’s Healthiest Foods website http://www.whfoods.com/. This was yet again another hit with the crowd and they kept coming back for more and telling their friends colleagues about it.
