    Healthy Lunches

    Working from home allows me access to my kitchen all day long.  This can be good and this can be bad.  It is good because I have a variety of options at my fingertips.  It is bad because I have a variety of options at my fingertips.  LOL!  Boredom can lead to mindless snacking, so I have become disciplined in eating only when my body is truly hungry, not bored or thirsty. 

    Lunches can sometimes be a challenge if we don’t have food leftover from the dinner the night before.  If I start grazing on fruit when I am making the kids lunches, it is too easy for me to skip lunch all together, so even though fruit is healthy, I try to limit my grazing unless I am sitting down with a bowl of fruit or a snack. 

    One of my current favorites for lunch is a salad, sandwich & simple side of sweet potato fries.  Alexia makes sweet potato fries that are super simple to prepare.  Just preheat the oven and toss the fries in on a baking sheet, turn half way through the baking time and then you have fresh fries!

    See how good that lunch looks?  I prepared a turkey sandwich with havarti, spinach & mustard and served along side fresh cantaloupe and Alexia sweet potato fries.  I used Udi’s gluten-free bread to make the sandwich and gently toasted it in the toaster oven before assembling my sandwich.

    Alexia makes many products, but they are not all gluten-free.  Their gluten-free products include all of the potato items with the exception of the “Alexia Potato Bites”.  For more FAQ, click here

    In addition to my sandwich, fries & fruit, I always have a side salad.  I make a large spinach salad with grape tomatoes topped with a drizzle of French dressing.  I can’t seem to get enough fresh spinach lately.  What do you have for lunch?  Do you make lunch to take with you to work?  Do you eat lunch out?  At home?
