i made this stir-fry for lunch yesterday (tuesday, 1/24):
i decided to bring my lunch to work this week. i work at a big bank and we do have a cafeteria, but to be honest – it’s not that healthy, and after 3 months of the same old slop, i needed a change! this stirfry is made up of:
- broccoli + broccoli stalk (don’t throw that part out – it’s great if you saute it)
- red pepper
- can of tuna
- frozen corn
- fresh cilantro
- garlic + chili powder

I ordered the Hawaiian Ginger and Pineapple Stir-fry (with onions, carrots, and mushrooms) and I ordered it with beef. Would I have preferred this to be organic beef? Of course. Did that fact that it wasn’t (I assume) stop me? Absolutely not. It was yummy and exactly what I was craving.
