The packable lunch. It's great in theory - it saves you money and is probably healthier than the fast food and grub truck options nearest your workplace - but takes time to prepare and may not be the yummiest thing you've ever eaten. (The transport factor limits most dishes, which means your sack lunch will usually consist of a sandwich, chips, and an apple; not exactly foods that satisfy your lunch break craving and inspire the rest of your workday.)
Good news, though. Packable meals are getting a revamp, as food producers and grocery stores recognize the need for healthier, more exciting lunch options. Among those stores is Target, whose Market Pantry line is both fresh and affordable. Its products feature in this BBQ Chicken and Black Bean Tostada recipe, which is a perfect example of the new take on the staid sack lunch. Pack it up for you and/or your kids, and see if the lunchbox that contains it doesn't come home empty.

Amigas, with Spring just around the corner (believe it or not!) we're going to be sharing healthy alternatives to Latin staples we love all month! We'll start with pollo asado.
Pollo asado is great because the citrus marinade starts the cooking process, allowing you to minimize cooking in oil. When you make the asado, use chicken breast and serve with brown rice to make it extra healthy!
