More Simple Lunch Ideas

For those of you doing the low carb thing (or some variant such as the 4HB slow carb diet, the paleo diet, etc.) here are a couple of lunch suggestions:

Try the Wholly Guacamole single serving packs.  They’re affordable, delish, and a nice balance of convenience and nutrition.  You get 6 for about $4.00.  Throw one in your lunch bag with some some snow pea pods and carrots.  A great alternative to ranch dressing or some other empty calorie dip.

Here’s another healthy main course you can make with 5 ingredients or less:

Broccoli Bacon Chicken Salad

3 cups diced free range chicken
3 cups thinly sliced broccoli
1/4 cup real bacon bits (not imitation!)
Olive oil mayo to desired consistency

Bake chicken at 375 for about an hour and fifteen minutes or until it reads 190 on your meat thermometer.  Allow to cool, skin, and dice.  Wash and slice broccoli very thin.  Combine with chicken, add olive oil mayo and bacon, and stir.
