Mind: letting my mind wander on long train ride
I had a long day of traveling and meetings, and knew there would be no time to break for lunch. I needed an option that I didn't need to heat up and that would leave me feeling light and alert during my conversations with colleagues. I mixed up some leftover couscous from dinner with spring greens, mozzarella, and quartered artichoke hearts. Instead of dressing, I buy artichoke hearts marinated in olive oil and herbs - perfect light addition to a protein-packet salad!
