This week I returned to school full-time, and although there is no shortage of back-to-school food ideas this time of year, none of it is geared toward me: an adult who needs to subsist on quick, nutritious, largely portable meals and snacks that don't involve cartoon characters or a ton of sugar. I don't have the tastes of a toddler or the metabolism of a college freshman. Where's my back-to-school guide?
Maybe you're in the same boat, either headed back to school as an adult student or as a teacher, gearing up for the long semester ahead. Since my days of living off vending machine meals are long gone, here's my plan for feeding myself and my family in a fast, healthy, and satisfying way all day, every day.
