I need some help. I work outside the home with my hubby twice a week. We are gone from morning until night, and we eat out. Breakfast is good, we eat at a truck that sells sandwiches (some with real meat, like chicken, pork or beef) and homemade burgers. : But for lunch and dinner, we're kinda stuck eat fast food. bleh. So I was thinking, to save us some money (and inches on our waist ) we should get some thermos' and at least save on one meal. DH is happy to have chili in his thermos everyday. I swear I could feed him chili and pizza everyday and he'd be thrilled. But I would like something other than chili sometimes you know? I was thinking chicken noodle soup and leftover pasta. What else is a good, easy to make thermos filler? I'm 5 months pregnant, so anything that's dump, cover and cook is my kinda recipe!

And recommendations on big thermos' would be greatly appreciated.

What about couscous with a bit of chicken thrown in on top? Or maybe a curry on top of rice. Maybe fried rice with some meat and vegetables. Pasta and sauce with meatballs (you can buy them pre made and frozen). You could do split pea soup, lentils or red beans and rice. Just some ideas hope it helps.

For example yesterday we ate:
Cauliflower Dill soup (from the Body Ecology Diet, not raw)
1 tbs. extra virgin coconut oil
1 diced onion
1/4-1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
1 large or two small heads of cauliflower
sea salt to taste
Saute onions in oil. Add dill, cauliflower and water to cover. Simmer 20 minutes. Then puree. Makes a creamy, flavorful soup. Perfect for breakfast lunch or dinner. (I would think you could make a good raw version of this). Its delicious! Even my six-year-old loved it.

You could add rice or meat to this for a heartier version.

harmonymama, thanks for the recipe! My husband would love to try it, so I'm going to make it for him. Do you know if using frozen cauliflower would work as well? Cauliflower usually isn't available here as fresh, although I will certainly look.
