I know for me I tend to get bored quick with that I’m eating
so I pick on things I shouldn’t or I run out and grab something
for lunch rather than risk eating something from home that
might be better for me!
Know what I mean?
So I came up with this YUMMY & QUICK lunch idea
I wanted to share with you.
As my clients know, a high protein lunch packed with
flavor is one of the easiest ways to start
curbing the cravings!
And my kids LOVE it too…see below for pics of 3 bowls
for 3 hungry kids!
Jenn’s Yummy *Salmon Bean Salad
*can replace salmon with protein of choice!
1 cup of cooked black beans rinsed (I used organic canned beans)
1 organic red pepper (peppers are loaded with pesticides so make it organic)
1/2 red onion diced (optional)
1 can wild alaskan salmon (whole foods and trader joes sell it!)
Handful of cilantro rinsed + chopped finely (can buy it fresh at any grocery store)
Handful of organic baby greens (I buy mixed greens already washed!)
Olive Oil to taste
Sea salt to taste
Rinse beans quickly in a strainer and put in a large bowl
with onion, cilantro and 1 diced organic pepper
of choice (sometimes I use two 1/2 yellow and 1/2 red pepper
to give it more color!)
Add can of salmon (if you don’t like salmon you can subsitute a
turkey burger or other protein of choice. I’ve even put in cold cuts
like Applegate Turkey breast!
Squeeze 1 lime in the bowl with olive oil and sea salt to taste.
Toss everything together with large spoon.
Tastes best if you let it chill for 1/2 hour in the frig but usually I’ll just eat
it on the spot!
Place over a bed of greens and ENJOY!
