6 Meals To Make When You Work Crazy Hours

Illustrated by Alex Marino.
Scenario #1: Three taps of the snooze button later, you realize you have, oh, 15 minutes to be up, dressed, fed, and out the door. Scenario #2: You come home following an after-work happy hour, ravished and in no mood to wait 45 minutes for delivery. Scenario #3: You know you need to eat something, but taking a break from your couch and movie marathon sounds none too appealing. What’s a hungry girl with a poorly stocked fridge to do?

With a little creativity and even less time, you can enhance everyday staples — think a box of pasta, a can of beans, and a container of yogurt — using stuff you may very well already have on hand: hydrating ZICO Natural Premium Coconut Water, a little cheese, and a helping of turkey bacon. Consider it your way to superstar breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinners — all without a trip to the grocery store. Two-ingredient ice cream? Refreshing soup that requires five ingredients and less than 10 minutes to whip up? We’re so there.
