Yummy and Delicious Lunch Ideas


I am not a big sandwich eater.  I like them, but not too often.  What I 
really enjoy for lunch is something healthy and flavorful.  Today, I have
three choices for you that are favorites of mine.

First up is this baked sweet potato.  A couple of weeks ago, I was having
lunch with my hubby at Jason's Deli.  I had a baked sweet potato, filled 
with lightly sauteed baby spinach and topped with shaved Asiago cheese.

Yummy!!!

I love that this combo is packed with vitamins, minerals and lots
of flavor.   If you are not a big fan of spinach, you could just
bake a sweet potato and top with the Asiago and that is good too.





This next option is a mix of roasted veggies over baby spinach (there's
that spinach again) and served with a side of brown lentils.  I just roast 
whatever veggies I have in the fridge.  I drizzle this with some olive
oil and a splash of lemon juice.  

Cooking lentils is easy.  I take 1/2 cup of dried brown lentils, rinse
well under cold water, then add to a saucepan filled with 1 cup of
water.  Bring to a boil, lower the heat, and cook for 20 to 30 minutes.
Any leftover lentils will happily live in the fridge for about a week.
Use them in salads or add to soup stock.




This a a big salad with hearts of Romaine, sliced grape tomatoes, 
seedless Kalamata olives, a little bit of sliced red onion, blue cheese 
crumbles and croutons.  Toss with a light vinaigrette, I make my
own with Balsamic vinegar, EVOO, S&P.  

These lunches will fill you up, give you energy and keep
your waistline slim.  Enjoy!

Big Texas Hugs,
