Enter Van's Totally Natural Frozen Waffles which are currently on sale for $2 at Whole Foods and you can print a $1 off coupon if you join their E-Club. The waffles are fluffier than their Eggo counterparts and their ingredient list is one to be proud of. They are hands down my favorite bread substitute. The sweetness is very faint, almost like that of honey wheat bread and one waffle is 115 calories. So for today's lunch I have:
- A Waffle-Wich filled with cranberry walnut tuna salad (I went very very light on the dressing to keep the waffle from going soggy.)
- An unfried green tomato - Two slices of green tomato topped with parmesan and mozzarella cheese toasted in the toaster oven until the cheese is melted. I topped these with a nori furikake for a punch.
- Plain Greek Yogurt
- Strawberries and Blackberries
This meal is a little light on the vegetables, however I had a green power smoothie for breakfast containing more vegetable servings in one glass than most Americans eat in a day. I've resigned to the fact that life is about balance, but not every meal must be balanced.
Do you have any tricks for bulking up your vegetable intake at lunch?
