Q: I’m having a very busy week coming up, with work all day then my husband and I volunteering with neighborhood kids all evening. I will be driving directly from work to volunteer. Flop into bed at night and repeat seven days a row.

I will have about 20 minutes for dinner as a break in the volunteering. I’ll have access to a sink and microwave, but no fridge or stove.

My question is what can I make ahead (a week ahead) that is reasonably healthy and portable?
