Katie's Lunch



Okay, ignore that yummy looking fruit parfait in the background for now.  We'll get to that in a minute.  Just thought I'd share my "recipe" for what I have for lunch just about every single day.

Ingredients:
1 whole wheat bagel  (My favorite are the Thomas brand ones.)
1 TBS roasted red pepper hummus  (I've been using Athenos brand.)
1 slice cheddar cheese (Tillamook, please.)
2 slices deli turkey (And if you're still buying that nasty pre-packaged stuff, you really have got to at least try
     fresh deli meat.  It's so much better.)
1/2 cup baby spinach or lettuce

Toast the bagel.  Spread the hummus on both sides of the bagel.  Top with cheese, deli turkey, and spinach.

I usually have this with a small salad, half of a green bell pepper, or some snap peas.  Oh, and I know it's not in the picture, but I also usually have 8oz (1 cup) carrot juice as well.  Yum!

Happy lunching!

If anyone has great simple, healthy, yummy lunch ideas please share them in the comments!  Thanks!

Bagels can be more calorie-dense than bread, so just be sure you read labels to get what you want. Sounds yummy!

I totally agree about Thomas brand whole wheat bagels! I LOVE them! I ate almost a whole bag of them the week of my marathon. And that lunch looks and sounds amazing!

I must mention that I like the camera angle on this food photo much better than the photo I took of my breakfast. I will learn from the master!

We'd love to hear from you!
