Lunch: Easy Salads for a Busy Bee

So although I’ve been TOTALLY slacking on keeping up with my blog posts…I hope you’ve at least been keeping up with me through my instagram! That being said, you may notice that I go through minor obsessions and may periodically see the same thing posted for like 2 weeks straight… You must wonder – “does she get sick of the same lunch everyday??” Answer is NOPE! Once I find something I LOVE it takes a lot for me to get sick of it. What is it about this salad combo I love? To be honest, it’s made up of very simple ingredients, it’s easy to throw together, and not to mention it’s …healthy!

Ingredients:

-1/2 cup cooked brown rice (I typically make a large batch of brown rice on Sunday to suffice for the whole week)
-Spinach or mixed greens
-1/4 cup of cherry tomatoes
-1/2 Avocado (because I don’t EVER go a day without some AVO in my life)
-1/2 Cooked Sweet Potato
-1/2 can of Tuna (I buy the tuna can in water, no salt added)

Then here’s the trick…I top it with the following seasonings/oils for flavor:

-Garlic Powder
-Cayenne Red Pepper (don’t go to crazy with this one!)
-Black Pepper
-A little of Olive Oil and some Balsamic Vinegar

Make sure to toss your salad with the oils RIGHT before you eat …you don’t want a soggy salad!
