Lunch is one of those meals that I am quick to forget. Wake up hungry? Eat Breakfast. Realize you're hungry at the end of the day? Eat dinner. Get too busy during the day? Forget lunch, opps.
While I try to not let this happen too often I will be the first to admit that it happens more often than I would like.
What is the solution? Having simple, healthy and delicious items readily available to throw together a quick lunch.
My new favorite product?
They are really good without being as heavy as a regular bagel. They work well stuffed with turkey and lettuce as a sandwich, with peanut butter and sliced bananas as a quick breakfast and especially good as the base for a pizza bagel!
Ready for a 10 minute lunch?
Place bagel halves on a cookie sheet and add 1 tablespoon sauce to each half: 30 seconds.
Top with spinach (or not): 5 seconds
Add 1 slice deli pepperoni (or not): 5 seconds
Next comes a sprinkling of cheese: 5 seconds
And possible some sliced mushrooms: 5 seconds
Into a 350 oven for 7-8 minutes and out comes lunch!
Pair this with an orange or fruit of your choice and you have a 300 calorie lunch!
PS Please ignore the horrible state of my cookie sheet, good thing the Wilton sale is right around the corner!!!
