Head to your local farmer’s market, co-op, bakery or grocery store and pick out a loaf of your favorite whole grain bread (or make your own!) For me this week it was a garlic and herb organic whole grain round loaf from the farmer’s market that is the size of my face. Use your new fresh-baked bread to make a delicious fresh vegetable sandwich 🙂
Who doesn’t love a big bowl of chili at work in the middle of February? Not only is this plant-based lunch box delicious, but it will keep you full until dinner thanks to the quinoa and beans in the chili. Make a big pot of chili (it’ll only take an hour to make), store it in the fridge and eat it for lunch throughout the week.
A lovely, rainbow lunch box! No shortage of good-for-you vitamins, minerals, protein and fiber in this box. It’s gluten, soy-free and can be made raw (see notes on ingredients). The cost for this lunchbox is approximately $5.50- however I used organic sprouted hummus and organic blue corn tortilla chips from Whole Foods… if you shop at Trader Joe’s or make your own, I bet you can get the cost down to $4.
This fresh pressed juice recipe is ultra refreshing and hydrating: cucumber is composed of a whopping 96.7% water and watermelon is 91.5% water content. The ginger adds a refreshing taste and will keep your tummy happy. It’s delicious!
