Lunch – no matter how you slice it or dice it, this mid day meal hardly every screams “exciting” especially when you have to pack it up and carry it with you to the office. But eating out every day at noon is not the answer. When you choose to purchase your lunch, instead of bringing it from home, your portion size almost always doubles, as does the dent in your wallet. Here is one of my favorite super simple, guilt free, salad recipes you will look forward to eating all morning long.
Arugula, Chickpea Salad ( One Serving)
What You Need:
- 2 handfuls of arugula
- 1/2 cup of chickpeas, drained ( sub any protein here – rotisserie chicken would be great)
- 2 tablespoons of Trader Joes reduced fat chunky guacamole ( I dream about this stuff)
- Handful of cherub tomatoes
- Sprinkle of reduced fat shredded Mexican cheese
What You Do:
Find a well sealed lunch container – these Rubbermaid Containers are my jam. Layer arugula, chickpeas, tomatoes, cheese and lastly the guac. Seal it up and you are ready to roll.
