I’m always surprised when people don’t cook for themselves when they live alone or happen to be alone at night. I like to treat myself to a scrumptious meal when I’m alone, especially when I can put leftovers together quickly.

As fall is approaching, I highly recommend making your life easy and delicious by roasting vegetables and preparing grains ahead of time and storing them in the fridge in clear Tupperware or mason jars so you can see what’s in them. I whipped up this healthy and divine lunch for myself today and must share it with you. As you might suspect, it serves one!
