I usually work from home and don't pack a lunch, but I've been attending a conference all week. Today I packed leftover black bean and corn salad on a bed of purple spinach and some snap peas and strawberries for snacking.

I was going to make a big salad today, but I didn't have enought salad dressing to make it any good.

So I took my salad, and put it in a pita!

Low carb pita (Tofuayan-best store bought pita I have ever had, low carb or not!)
AFR Hummus
1 tomato (from my garden picked this morning)
Sliced cucumber and yellow bell pepper
1 small avacado
handful of spinach
drizzle of AFR ceasar dressing.

Whoa. I ususally eat salads if I don't have leftovers, but this was so so good and so much more filling than a salad. It was not too much more calories than a salad either (except for the WHOLE avacado I could not resist eating) I will have to do this more often.

Left over Veggie Pot Pie Stew. Unfortunately, my yellow split peas didn't get soft and I didn't realize it until after I was done making it. So, it's yummy... with crunchy bits...... Next time I'll pay closer attention to those little mustards.

Leftover VB Swiss Chard Frittata, salad with mixed baby greens, cucumber, tomato, red pepper and a homemade tahini-miso dressing. I drizzled extra dressing on the frittata, yum.
Also, a bit of coconut yogurt with these awesome wild blueberries we bought at a roadside stand near the cottage.

I packed a bunch of nice CSA stuff (snap peas, red peppers) with some guacamole and cherries but then I forgot it at home. Awesome coworker to the rescue! He surprised me with a MASSIVE sandwich piled high with all sorts of veggies, dijon mustard, and he even had the deli put some hummus on it for me. I need to whine about forgetting my lunch more often.

The best salad ever: romaine, green grapes, a yellow pepper, carrot, tofu baked in Braggs and lemon juice, roasted beets and yam, with a creamy miso dressing. SO GOOD! I'm having the exact same thing again tomorrow.

Leftover pad thai (sorta). It was really good last night, but in my experience rice noodles don't reheat well, so leftovers are just kinda meh. Also, raspberries.

Leftover Ancho/chipotle lentil taco filling (from the PPK blog-dinner last night) turned into a salad with a cabbage mix + Pico De Gallo i made + half an avacado.

I found that if I mix the pico with the cabbage and add a bit of salt about 10 minutes before eating, that the cabbage gets more flavor and is more yum

Also breakfast + Snacks here at work: Soymilk + protien powder (trying out Amazing Meal, its not amazing, but not bad either), fresh cantaloupe, hummus + veggies, an apple (that i probably wont eat)

My food for today sounds much better when I write it all out

You guys gotta make this! Easy, delicious, and nutritious!

Baked sweet potato (done in the crockpot overnight)
Steamed bag of kale and beans (WF has these new steamable pouches of greens, veggies, and beans)
