I’ll admit over the past few years and especially since becoming a mom the word “lunch” has gone from a noun to a verb. In every sense of the definition I have made it a verb, lunching IS totally a verb. In general, I’m a lazy luncher and I would much rather blend up a smoothie or go “lunching” with someone I love opposed to making lunch and eating at home. Since going plant-based my feelings about eating lunch in have changed and I no longer wonder what I will make and how long it will take because I have developed some really great and quick lunchtime recipes like my Favorite Chickpea Salad. It is the best I have ever tasted and it contains only whole foods. No mayo, oil or canned meat. If you like chicken salad, tuna salad or avocado you will love this. My kids love taking it in their lunch boxes with crackers and gluten-free bread and because of the lemon it will never turn or change color. It is full of protein, good for you fats and veggies. For all my paleo friends scoop this chickpea salad onto romaine lettuce leaves for a paleo lunch.
