Just because I’m at work all day doesn’t mean I can’t eat like a queen.
Here’s a snippet of today’s @ work lunch – reinvented falafel.
Veggie Patch Falafel Chickpea Balls
+ my easy roasted cherry tomatoes
+ one whole grain wrap (not whole wheat… whole grain)
+ one cup fresh string beans, steamed (leftovers)
How to make easy roasted cherry tomatoes:
**(pre-heat the hot box to 375F)
+ Get two pints fresh cherry tomatoes
+ 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
+ 1 tbsp garlic powder
+pinch of sea salt and cracked black pepper
+ 1/2 tbsp dried oregano and basil, mixed
Combine them all into an oven-safe dish and bake for 40-45 mins or until the tomatoes start to burst slightly. They’ll keep in the fridge for several days (but they never last that long for me. Just sayin’.)
This was a great lunch with all the stuff I need to get by: whole grains (wrap), protein (falafel/chickpeas), complex carbs (beans), and a healthy dose of Vitamin C (tomatoes). I was feeling run-down at work, so this help to boost my energy levels.
