How many times have you woken up on a Monday and said, I need to eat light today. But, that does not mean we should not eat. Which is sometimes what we do because we are under the impression that making healthy, light meals takes time. Well, here is my cheat. A couple of times a week I make this lunch for myself. It takes 5 minutes to prepare. Even though it is a light meal, its fills me up and I feel nourished. And, when I am really crazed and don’t have enough time to prepare dinner, I serve it to my family with brown rice noodles. Trust me, once you try my short cut Pho, you will be hooked.
