Pearl Barley with some stuff in it

A tendency to over-indulge at the weekends has led to an attempt to be nice and healthy during the week. I’m also trying to be good and make sure I have tupperwares of food at the ready when eating at home isn’t a possibility. On Tuesday evening I had to go Birmingham for work and wouldn’t be home until way past suppertime, so a box of the following was made for the train there…

Cooked and cooled pearl barley (simmer in water for about an hour)

Cooked, chopped beetroot

A handful of babyleaf spinach

Cooked and cooled broccoli, green beans and sugar snaps

Lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil

Some chunks of goats’ cheese
