Easy Healthy Lunch Recipes
This category of Healthy Lunch Recipes gives you mostly raw produce dishes which can be accompanied with a grain or legume. Eating a mostly raw lunch is a good habit to boost your immune system naturally and keep cravings for bad foods at bay. I am starting with some new Healthy Lunch Recipes and then adding recipes found in my
‘Quick and Easy Healthy Salad Recipes’
section which are my most recommended recipes for lunch.
Raw Veg Pizza
Crust:2 whole grain tortillas or pitas
Sauce:organic pizza sauce or spaghetti sauce
Choose vegetables of your choice - suggestions:
mushroom, sliced or diced
black olive, chopped
zuccinni, sliced or diced
tomato, diced or sliced
bell pepper, all colors, diced
fresh jalapeno, sliced thin
broccoli or cauliflower, chopped
fresh chopped cilantro, basil or parsley
Toast tortillas or pitas until almost desired texture (I like mine crispy). Top with sauce then add vegetables of your choice and warm in oven just a couple of minutes to warm thru but not destroy the enzymes in vegetables. Top with fresh green herbs of choice. Serves one.
1 cup bulgar wheat, soaked in 2 cups purified water for 30-60 minutes
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1-2 medium cucumbers, chopped
½ cup scallions or fresh chives, chopped
1-2 cups parsley, chopped
1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
½ cup red onion, chopped (optional)
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
1 tsp sea salt
2 T extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
For a Healthy Lunch Recipe which is a meal in a bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients and pour over combined remaining ingredients. Will keep in refrigerator for 2-3 days. You may also try replacing the bulgar wheat with quinoa, couscous, brown rice or millet. Can be served on a bed of lettuce or stuffed into a tomato. A meal in a bowl which provides loads of energy!
.Apple Cinnamon Salad
Great for a lighter lunch but very filling and provides loads of energy:
½ large or 1 small lemon or lime, juiced
1 tsp raw honey
1 organic apple, chopped
½ cup raw pecans, slightly broken
2-3 T dried cranberries or raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
Stir honey into lemon/lime juice until dissolved.. Add apple as you chop it to prevent browning. Add remaining ingredients and stir. One large lunch portion or two small.
