Packing Lunch for the Office

For those of us that work long hours that keep us sitting all day, it can have serious effects on our health. Pairing bad eating habits with a lack of exercise will not only have a negative effect on you physically, it will make you feel less motivated and more likely to slack off. That is why it is so important to pack a lunch and snacks that are filled with fruits, veggies, and protein. A handful of almonds will do wonders for you when you start to feel late afternoon hunger. Today I had a cheddar and tomato sandwich with onion and butter lettuce. I added a tiny dash of dijon mustard to make it more fun. That and an apple had me refreshed and ready to finish my day strong! I felt much better than my office mates, who went to get greasy stir fry from the local market!

Pilates, food, and fun.

Caramelized Shallot Pasta This pasta is all about the shallots, cooked down in a bath of olive oil to a jammy, caramelized paste. Tomato paste is there for tanginess, and anchovies for saltiness, but they serve more as background flavors to the sweetness of the shallot. This recipe makes enough caramelized shallot mixture for a double batch of pasta, or simply keep it refrigerated to spoon over fried eggs, or to serve underneath crispy chicken thighs or over roasted root vegetables like carrots or sweet potatoes. •YIELD4 servings •TIME40 minutes This pasta is all about the shallots, cooked down in a bath of olive oil to a jammy, caramelized paste. Tomato paste is there for tanginess, and anchovies for saltiness, but they serve more as background flavors to the sweetness of the shallot. This recipe makes enough caramelized shallot mixture for a double batch of pasta, or simply keep it refrigerated to spoon over fried eggs, or to serve underneath crispy chicken thighs or over roasted root vegetables like carrots or sweet potatoes. INGREDIENTS •¼ cup olive oil •6 large shallots, very thinly sliced •5 garlic cloves, 4 thinly sliced, 1 finely chopped • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper •1 teaspoon red-pepper flakes, plus more to taste •1 (2-ounce) can anchovy fillets (about 12), drained •1 (4.5-ounce) tube or (6-ounce) can of tomato paste (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup) •10 ounces pasta •1 cup parsley, leaves and tender stems, finely chopped • Flaky sea salt Add to Your Grocery List Ingredient Substitution Guide PREPARATION 1.Heat olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed Dutch oven over medium high. Add shallots and thinly sliced garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the shallots have become totally softened and caramelized with golden-brown fried edges, 15 to 20 minutes. 2.Add red-pepper flakes and anchovies. (No need to chop the anchovies; they will dissolve on their own.) Stir to melt the anchovies into the shallots, about 2 minutes. 3.Add tomato paste and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly to prevent any scorching, until the tomato paste has started to cook in the oil a bit, caramelizing at the edges and going from bright red to a deeper brick red color, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer about half the mixture to a resealable container, leaving the rest behind. (These are your leftovers to be used elsewhere: in another batch of pasta or smeared onto roasted vegetables, spooned over fried eggs or spread underneath crispy chicken thighs.) 4.To serve, cook pasta according to package instructions in a large pot of salted boiling water until very al dente (perhaps more al dente than usual). Transfer to Dutch oven with remaining shallot mixture (or a skillet if you are using the leftover portion) and 1 cup pasta water. Cook over medium-high heat, swirling the skillet to coat each piece of pasta, using a wooden spoon or spatula to scrape up any bits on the bottom, until pasta is thick and sauce has reduced and is sticky, but not saucy, 3 to 5 minutes. 5.In a small bowl, combine parsley and finely chopped garlic clove, and season with flaky salt and pepper. Divide pasta among bowls, or transfer to one large serving bowl, and top with parsley mixture and a bit more red-pepper flakes, if you like. #kitchen tool#cooking tool#gadgets tool#utensils tool#bigstoneshopcom#home keeping
