Here is a simple idea for lunch or dinner.
Spinach salad with cooked quinoa (I cooked mine with vegetable broth), sunflower seeds, dried cranberries and balsamic vinaigrette. Dried blueberries would be good too. One of my friends made it after I posted it on Instagram and added strawberries. I added garbanzo beans the second time I made it.
I have been craving vegetables lately (finally, a healthy pregnancy craving) so I randomly bought some fennel at the grocery store the other day. I had a lot of spinach at home so I googled fennel with spinach and found this simple salad. It was perfect for a light lunch.
I am always looking for new lunch ideas that my husband can take to work and doesn’t have to be heated up. I found this recipe on Oh She Glows and it is a keeper. We love pesto in our house and this was a new take on it that ended up tasting really good.
This is one of our go-to sandwiches for lunch. It is tasty and packed with whole grains, protein, fiber, healthy fats and other essential nutrients. It keeps us full for a while so we aren’t craving snacks all afternoon.
