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 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.
