Lunch – in Five Minutes

IMG_4704Looking for a light and healthy lunch?  This one’s packed with antioxidants, protein and heart healthy fats.  And, it’s vegan!  You can prepare everything the night before so you can grab & go the next morning.

Here’s the ingredient list:

  • Romaine lettuce (dry well; a salad spinner works best)
  • Medium tomato, chopped
  • Small onion, chopped
  • Juice of ½ lime or lemon (fresh)
  • Sea salt & pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Pumpkin or sunflower seeds (raw)
  • Optional: dash of cayenne

Combine all ingredients, except lettuce.  I use a leakproof container with tight lid but you can use whatever you have on hand.  Place romaine on top of the veggies and seeds so it doesn’t get soggy.  Enjoy the next day!

Ps. – Shake the container for a few seconds when you’re ready to enjoy.  This will disperse the dressing – you can eat as-is or pour into a bowl (I keep an extra one handy in my office).  If you’re eating on the go, this isn’t practical so make sure your container is large enough to allow you to enjoy your awesome salad without making a mess! 🙂

Enjoy!
