Personally, lunch is one of those meals that has to be healthy and give me energy to get through the afternoon. This salad could easily have been wrapped into a tortilla with some hummus and avocados, but I guess I just felt like salad today. My one-year-old had brown rice, black beans and cucumbers (his new favorite food) for lunch, so I decided to put that on a bowl of baby spinach along with some shredded carrots, tomatoes and a drizzle of olive oil. Quick, easy, healthy, delicious!
After our run this morning, that wasn't quite enough, so I finished off with a couple of my favorite whole-grain chocolate chip cookies (recipe coming soon)...yum!
