It's not my favorite...
Far from it in fact. There are possibly 100 things I would enjoy eating better.
I eat it fairly regularly at least 3x per week.
It's nothing to brag about.
2 Cans Tuna
1 Can Green Beans
1 Can Corn
So, Why do I do it?
Strangely enough I have several reasons (which is why I do it so often).
Reason #1 - High Protein and some veggies - 50+ grams
Reason #2 - Portable - Easy to bring to the studio
Reason #3 - Doesn't Spoil - if I don't eat it, it'll be good tomorrow or in 2 months
Reason #4 - Low Prep Time - open, drain, eat
Reason #5 - Cheapness - Compared to grabbing lunch out big savings!
Reason #6 - I don't get bloated after...I feel good
Reason #7 - Actually there are only 6 reasons I can think of.
So this meal helps me to get protein and nutrients for my body is not a chore to make and saves me $30 a week I figure.
That's $1,440 per year (48 wks a year).

2 tsp. of coconut oil (or any you prefer), plus 1 Tbsp.

1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
3 stalks of celery
¼ cup of hot sauce (or to taste)
Ranch Dressing *I love the Bolt House Farms ranch (found in the produce section of both Walmart and Wegmans)
Prep- you can do while the chicken cooks:
*In a small bowl combine the arrowroot, salt and pepper; set aside.
*Thinly slice the carrots, celery and scallions.
Place the oil in a large non-stick skillet and heat over medium high heat for 2 minutes. Add the chicken (or turkey) to the skillet and cook, breaking it up until it is loose and no longer pink. Add the spiced...
