Let’s Do Lunch

           Hope you all had a wonderful Thursday! My morning started out with another blueberry banana protein smoothie mixed with a cup of steel cut oats. Later I had a chocolate Orgain shake and lunch was Ezekial bread with hummus and a big salad with green beans, avocado, and practically the bottle of this amazing Follow Your Heart balsamic vinegarette. (okay, not that much, but it’s insanley addicting!) Lunch isn’t my favorite meal of the day and usually I’ll just have a big salad or something easy such as soup. However, I decided I would make it a goal not to be so lazy and lacking when it comes to lunch and came up with aa few light recipes that give the old PB and J and an apple mid-day meal a makeover. Try out these delicious and super nutritious lunches that easily go to school or work:)
