Let’s face it, authors need quick, healthy meals.  It is an unhealthy line of work because we just sit at our desks all day. However, it’s not just the sedentary lifestyle that’s a problem. We also tend to eat poorly because we’re always pushing ourselves to get the next book out.

Too often, on a tight deadline, I skip what’s good for me and go for whatever is on hand and doesn’t require me to leave the house. I have resorted to a meal of American cheese and Redbull on a few occasions. Not cool to my poor, abused body.

I really needed to make a positive change.

After googling for weeks (wink) I finally found a solution that met my healthy standards, my budget and my own cooking skills (not all that impressive).
