This post is part of a series called “35 Days of Favorites”, in honor of my 35th birthday. You can read more about the details here…
I’m going to cheat a little bit on this one – I have two favorites when it comes to eating lunch.
The first is a little bit of a chicken salad that I mixed up one day, and then loved it so much, I eat it almost every day.
It’s super-simple, as is most of the food I make. Cooked chicken, chunks of cucumber and red pepper, mixed with a dressing of olive oil, salt, garlic, and basil. That’s it! Quick to make, and I always make sure I have cooked chicken in the freezer so it’s ready and easy.
My other favorite is a weird-looking one, but try to get past it’s appearance! It’s so delicious!here.)
I’ve even tried it with raw zucchini noodles, which are strange but surprisingly good!! I just used a potato peeler to make a plateful of thin long strips.
Pour on your favorite pasta sauce on, and dig in. Taste-wise, I couldn’t tell I was eating zucchini instead of pasta. It has a very slight crunchiness to it, but steaming it for a few minutes would probably take care of that. I don’t, because I like the fact that I’m eating a raw lunch.
Along with the avocado sauce, I love adding hemp seeds on top. They add tons of protein, and have a very nice flavour.
What’s your favorite thing to eat for lunch? Anything you keep eating over and over again?:)

Yummy! I’m definitely going to try the avocado pasta! Looks very tasty! Lunches around here are very uninspired. I don’t really have a favorite lunch. Maybe the avocado pasta will be come a new favorite! 🙂
