With that in mind, I whipped up a Quinoa Tabbouleh Salad this weekend in preparation for the week ahead. The recipe can be found at the link. It involves quinoa, tomatoes, cucumber, edamame, scallions, and chopped cilantro, and it's really delicious. I served it with hummus in a whole wheat pita pocket. Without the hummus I found it kind of bland, so it also tastes great if you mix some hummus in with the salad while you eat. I purchased some single serving packages of hummus for work, and it's been easy to pack this lunch the night before.
For my next lunch, I plan on bringing black beans and sweet potatoes with avocado and tomato and a small tortilla. It's also going to be great. I generally cook my meals for the week on Sunday nights. Now I whip up enough food for a week's worth of lunches on Sunday mornings. It just takes a bit of extra planning. Whether it's making a terrific lunch or taking a walk on your lunch break, do something for yourself each day!
