If any of you are like P and I, we despise packing lunches each day to eat at work. We want things that are healthy yet satisfy those mid-day cravings and offer us energy to get through the rest of the work day. It can be difficult to accomplish all of those tasks in one noon-day meal, but we try our best :) We prefer leftovers from the evening before, but we have also come to love chicken salad! It is extremely easy to make and very healthy - we skip the bread and instead choose to eat ours with fruit or vegetables on the side, and a glass of sun tea lemonade (see post here). I hope this leaves you feeling inspired to try something new for lunch!
