Nutritious, delicious lunch ideas!
Not only do I believe in a nutritious, delicious, awesome breakfast (see yesterday's post) I also think lunch should be extremely delicious and filled with loads of good stuff too. So I thought I might share with you some of my favorite lunches from the past month...
Starting with yesterdays:
This was a rye flat bread that I lightly heated, then topped with my guacamole (avocado, corn, capsicum, tomato, lemon juice + food processor), with grated carrot, tomatoes, cucumber and eggs, with some hommus on top and some salsa hidden amongst the veggies.
A couple of weeks ago, I wanted a little bit of everything, so instead of one full meal I made a few smaller ones- still very yummy!
I found some huge silver beet at the grocery store the other day and immediately had an idea!
I decided to make a wrap! Inside was brown rice, sauteed veggie (mushroom, tomatoes, capsicum) mixed four beans, corn, peas, lentils and probably a bunch of other stuff all mixed together with hommus. ( I made another one which had pesto instead- just as good)
And just wrapped it up in foil. Easy! So I made the filling by putting some mixed beans, corn, mushrooms, lentils, capsicum and tomatoes in a small fry pan, adding some taco seasoning and water, and cooking until it all got nice and thick:
If you couldn't tell from these pictures, I also love bright, rainbow meals, they're pretty and you know your getting lots of good nutrients too!
I hope you all have a great lunch today- give yourself a challenge and try and make it as rainbow as possible!
