I bet you had those days that you were running around like crazy and didn’t have time to prepare you dinner or lunch. Probably the first thing that came to your mind was to pick up your phone and dial the favorite number of your restaurant and ask for delivery. That should be the fastest way to get your food, right?
Well, Not really. I have a good news for you. Foil pack meals are here to rescue you. They are easy to prepare, and they will be ready faster tahn delivery food. I’m not kidding. All you have to do is cut the vegetables, arrange them in foil with the Salmon or shrimp or chicken, drizzle them with olive oil and seasonings and you’re halfway done. Do whatever you need to do and leave them baking or grilling for 20-30 minutes. That’s all to it.
Foil pack dishes are very flexible too when it comes to what you can put inside. Choose whatever vegetables and meat you like, be creative. Salmon is my most favorite, but I cannot say no to Shrimp Foil Pack, and of course chicken. You can have it on its own, but if you have Quinoa or Couscous, they are perfect to go with them. Let’s get started!
