Eating like a queen

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.

Dig this:

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)

the falafel balls heat in less than one minute in the micro and I ate the pre-steamed green beans at room temp. Super easy. Bring a napkin.

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’.)

Roll the good stuff in the wrap. Voila.

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.
