VT's 21-Day Lunch Challenge: Day 15

 Day 15

What’s for lunch? Open-Face Tomato-Basil Sandwiches

Smart Bite: Write it out! Writing can help you process your thoughts and gain valuable insights or even therapeutic catharsis. Try writing in a journal for 10 minutes a day during your lunch break. In need of an inspirational new blank book to journal in? Check out the super-cute and eco-friendly Turn Over A New Leaf notebook by Sukie, made from recycled papers.

Experiencing writer's block? Choose a quote from a great thinker or favorite author—or even a favorite fortune cookie message—and reflect on its application to your current life. Or, try writing a "letter" to yourself or to someone else that you never intend to mail. Remember, there's no need to edit or sensor your writing, the goal is simply to keep your pen or pencil moving. Or, if writing in a journal just isn't for you, spend 10 minutes writing an overdue email or card to a family member or friend instead.

SOup is always good, fililng and endless possibiblites for using up vegetables you don't like that much.You can make turnip, spinach, kale and pumpkin soup blend all the cooked veg together with some vegetarian broth, garlic cloves and salt and pepper. Add back to the cooking pan, and add a swirl of low fat yoghurt ( plain) for creaminess.Make a low-fat plain yoghurt cereal- put plain yoghrut in a tupperware or a glass jar, fill the container about 1/3, then add a handful of your favourite cereal- grape nuts, special K, etc, then add another 1/3 of plian yoghrt, and add chopped fruit and some more cereal, then top with yoghrut and stir very gently once through.Its good when you have clumps of dry cereal still., Then put the lid on the container and put in the fridge. LEt it sit for two hours, then eat like that, with some hot honey as sweetner, it is SO good like this.I use Special K and leave big dry clumps of it- the yoghurt seeps in to the cereal, and oyu still have crunchy bits.Cook broccoli, cauliflour, green peas, sliced leeks, chunks of cabbage and yellow peppers in veg broth. Drain and add salt pepper and chopped rosemary and a bit of olive oil. Stuff a toasted warmed wholewheat burrito with tomato sauce and pay some spinach leaves on it and a mix of the vegetables.Add grated low fat cheese, and roll the burrito up to eat.Toast a wholewheat pita, and spread with cottage cheese and hummous lightly, Add yellow peppers and sliced apples. Cut the pita into triangles.
