What is all the fuss about healthy eating being too much trouble or too expensive? It just is not true. Today I was so hungry, yet kept putting off eating because I did not want to take the time to make anything at all. Last evening I had done a major shop so I had a stocked pantry and fridge for some good meals. I thought to myself, “Oh, I will just get a bite of cheese and a couple olives from the fridge. Within a few minutes I pulled out a couple leaves of freshly washed Romaine, and an avocado that was ripe and ready. The cutting board and knife were whipped out and before I knew it this beautiful plate became available to me. I don’t think it took more than 5 minutes, including very little clean up.

I got a little carried away because I wanted to take a picture so I put a little more on my plate than I could really eat. The rest is waiting for a dinner appetizer.

So Simple!!

Lunch made simple


Lettuce leaves of choice

Avocado slices

Goat Cheese (alternative: hard boiled egg)



Salt, pepper, cayenne.

This is also a great pack and go item. You do not even need to cut the avocado and cheese before you go. Throw them in your pack with a knife and napkins and enjoy them almost anywhere. All it takes is assembling – no cooking!
