Creative Lunch Combo

just came from lunch. I made myself a healthy green salad for lunch. I chopped up some lettuce, some tomatoes, some olives, and some feta cheese. I made a salad dressing of mustard, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lemon, and brown sugar. That was my lunch. It took a lot of will power not to partake of any other dishes for lunch.

I was craving for some sweets but I didn't want to have dessert as it might offset my light lunch. I decided to mix some dried mangoes, raisins, prunes, and fresh blue berries that I have here at home. I added some cashew nuts, almonds, and roasted peanuts. Viola!!! I have my own mixed fruit and nuts!

Have you been creative with your food lately?

My mom is very creative in her cooking, and I love those and I ate them a lot... Lol! I am not into cooking but to eating hhahaha... i pray that I can inherit my mom's skills in cooking, she was always being requested in most of our family's party to cook, and even the guest is asking for her menu. God bless.

As much as I would love to, I have diet restrictions. I have been craving for fresh green salad but it is not safe to eat raw vegetable for pregnant women as raw food can be contaminated with bacteria. Better be safe than sorry . allen0187
