Happy Monday! Today’s lunch:
- A no-recipe-just-mix-salad of chopped vegetables with quinoa and chickpeas and add a pinch of salt, a drizzle of olive oil and some lemon juice with a side of Mary’s Gone Crackers Sticks and Twigs:
For the quinoa salad, the ratio ended up being equal parts of chopped zucchini, bell pepper, quinoa and chickpeas, with a couple of tablespoons of chopped parsley and scallions. It was a great way to finish up vegetables from the previous week to make room for new market buys yesterday.
A combination of fighting a cold and having to get up extra early this morning meant that I did not pack snacks. I had also
planned hoped to be home earlier than I was, but I have to say that the quinoa salad was very filling, and I had extra quinoa salad and Mary’s Gone Crackers Sticks and Twigs. So I ended up being fine as I snacked on the extras.
PS – if you are curious about why I started the lunchbox series, click here. Initially it was going to be a for just a week but now I am on week 3 and planning to do a lunchbox for workdays until the end of September. I am debating continuing the series indefinitely, but would welcome ideas for ways to make it less monotonous.
