I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve shared a Meals in Minutes recipe…not because I’ve stopped eating them, but because my meals on the go haven’t really been all that exciting lately! This one is definitely an exception though. Not only is it super fast to put together, but it’s also a really pretty spread and easy to eat if you find yourself having to work through lunch.
This might look a little small to be a full meal (at least that’s what Mike tells me ;) ), but I eat 5-6 meals throughout the day so some of my meals are a little on the smaller side (plus remember that cheese and nuts are nutritionally dense!). Of course you can adjust this to suit your own eating schedule though…maybe decrease the amount of cheese or nuts and have it as a snack. Or add a green salad, a bowl of soup, or half a sandwich and eat it as a larger meal.
I’m sharing a few of my favorite fruit/nut/cheese combos for inspiration, but feel free to use any combination you like.
Fruit, Cheese, & Nut Plates
For a Fruit, Cheese, & Nut Plate for 1, use any combination you like of the following:
Fresh fruit or veggies (1 serving)
Dried fruit (about 1-2 oz)
Nuts, preferably raw and unsalted (about 1 oz)
Cheese (about 1 oz)
Crackers (1 serving)
Please note that my measurements are estimates…I usually just grab an appetizer-sized plate or a bento box and fill it up.
