What to eat for a vegan lunch?
Going vegan for lunch has to be the easiest meal. Fruit, veggies, whole grain breads are simple lunch staples. Salads are a real no-brainer like this vegan black bean salad.
Vegan Black Bean Salad
2 cans black beans
1 large tomato chopped
1 red pepper chopped
2 cups corn (please use organic)
2 green onions sliced
Juice of 1 small lime or lemon
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1 avocado chopped
romaine leaves chopped (2 leaves/serving)
I tend to be one of those people who tweaks healthy recipes based on my personal nutrition habits, my tastes or what I have on hand. I took the word salad to heart and added the romaine. You can see the original recipe here. BTW, I use frozen corn.I Love the freshness of this salad. It’s a recipe packed with nutrition in every ingredient!
Always feel free to improvise with recipes. This one makes it easy!
I made the full version of this recipe, just for me. I’ll get 6 servings out of this recipe the way I eat. The first day at lunch I had it plain. The second day I added the romaine, and the next day I had it wrapped in a whole wheat tortilla as a burrito. Living in Cabo, it’s almost impossible to find non-dairy cheese, so I didn’t use any cheese.
Don’t be afraid to make full recipes if you live alone. It cuts down on cooking and also wondering what you’re going to eat. You may not be the kind of person who can eat the same thing daily until it’s gone. In that case, cut it in half or eat it every other day.
