Fridays are always a super busy day. There never seems to be enough time to get everything done, and often we don’t take time to look after ourselves. While I’m not always successful, I try hard to take a few minutes to eat a good lunch that will fuel me through the hectic afternoon.
Check out this simple, delicious, and healthy salad that I threw together in about 5 minutes:
- I started out with these stunning organic vine tomatoes that I picked up at Ambrosia this morning and they had these stunning. I picked them up and knew that they would be the centre of my lunch.
- Next I added some chick peas. Every Friday morning I cook up a batch of chickpeas in my InstantPot, so I used some of those.
- Then I pulled out some already washed and checked Romaine lettuce and tossed that in.
- Finally I added sundried tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, fresh cracked pepper and some avocado. It’s always important to have a little fat with your salad to help your bottom absorb the fat soluble vitamins.
So satisfying, and I promise you will feel light and energetic after this salad. Well fueled to tackle the rest of the day.
1 cup cooked or canned chickpeas
2 vine ripe tomatoes, cut into wedges
2 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
2 tablespoons slivered sundried tomatoes
1/2 small avocado diced very small
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
freshly ground pepper
Toss everything together very well and enjoy.
