We all have experienced busy weekdays where every day feels like a marathon we have to complete. Amid such busy schedules, we often tend to miss or forget to prepare a healthy meal.


And, after a long and tiring day, we want to indulge in a type of meal that not only soothes our souls and nourishes our bodies that can be prepared quickly. At times when you are too busy to make something for yourself, you just end up putting together items available in your fridge. Or else, we end up ordering comfort food that surely burns a hole in our pockets.
