Healthy Lunch Ideas
Mash an avocado with lemon juice, salt and pepper, then spread it on a whole wheat wrap. Top it with crumbled bacon or chicken/beef peaces (you can even use salmon or tuna if you want to), chopped tomatoes, and thinly sliced lettuce. Roll the wrap up and wrap it in parchment or wax paper to secure.
Whisk 1 part of lemon juice to 2 parts of olive oil and season it with black pepper. Add finely chopped shallot, let it sit for a few minutes, then toss it with canned, rinsed cannelloni beans (or white kidney beans), feta or goat cheese crumbles, thinly sliced cucumber half-moons, and chopped fresh dill or parsley.
3.) Pesto shrimp skewers:
Thread skewers with grape tomatoes, cucumber chunks, cooked shrimp (or chicken and if you're vegetarian, tofu) and toasted whole wheat bread cubes. Pack it with pesto sauce for dipping.
4.) Pesto chicken rolls:
Toss diced roast chicken breast with pesto, diced mozzarella and sliced sugar snap peas. Transfer to an airtight container and pack it with a whole wheat hot dog bun.
Broccoli and feta omelet with toast:
1 cup chopped broccoli
2 large eggs, beaten
2 tbs feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 tsp dried dill
2 slices rye bread
a) Heat a nonstick skillet over a medium heat. Coat the pan with cooking spray and add the broccoli, cool it for 3 minutes.
b) Combine the eggs, feta, and dill in a small bowl. Add the egg mixture to the pan. Cook 3 to 4 minutes and flip the omelet and cook another 2 minutes until it is through. You can eat it with a slice or two of whole wheat toast.
