Next time you find yourself in the situation I was in today – no dinner leftovers to brown-bag for tomorrow’s lunch – skip the food court and go to the nearest deli or grocery store instead. Lots of simple, tasty, heart-healthy choices. I went to the downtown IGA and picked up juicy ripe tomatoes, olives, roasted marinated eggplant, and a package of proscuitto di San Daniele (hey, it’s a feast day). Perfect with your choice of a cold San Pelligrino beverage – I like the limonata. Sit in the sun, have a picnic, and enjoy a few minutes of la dolce vita without leaving town. If you can’t go to Italy, this is the next best thing.
