I love this meal, it’s delicious! I often eat it for breakfast but it also makes a great lunch or dinner. It’s extremely satisfying and will keep you going for hours. I’m sure you’re going to love it as much as me. Enjoy!
Pack it up in a container and take it for lunch. It tastes delicious both hot and cold so if you don’t have access to a reheating facility, that’s no problem at all. It will also keep in the fridge for a few days too 🙂
