Monday Motivation – My favourite lunch right now

Happy Monday.

Hope all the mum’s out there had a lovely Mother’s Day and were treated by their families.  I was surprised with beautiful sunflowers from my girls.  They are so gorgoeus, and this morning they made me smile.sunflowersThe high school had a Mother’s Day litergy and morning tea this morning, which was so lovely … so the warm fuzzies have continued on today.

I thought I would share one of my favourite lunches at the moment.  My friend Robyn made me a version of this a couple of months back, and now I find it an easy and yummy lunch to have an hand.

You can do a fast version or a budget version.  I will give you both options.

I use Tuna, but you can use salmon, chicken, beef .. any type of protein really.lunch1

Fast Version

  • 1 x brown rice cup
  • 1 x can of tuna (flavour of your choice)
  • kale slaw (supermarket mix – in the salad section)

layer the cooked brown rice in bottom of the bowl, then tuna and top with kale slaw.  You have an instant bowl of goodness.lunch2

Budget version (lasts for 3 days)

  • cook 1 1/2 cups brown rice in the rice cooker
  • 1 large can plain tuna
  • make kale slaw

I add pesto to the drained can of tuna, to create the flavoured tuna.

to make the slaw I use kale either finely chopped or put through the food processor.  Then a couple of carrots grated, a beetroot – grated, 1 green apple – grated, brocolli stem also grated (you can add anything else you wish) I usually do these veges in the food processor with grater part inserted.  I like to put some mixed seeds and nuts in mine also.  The store bought version has a yoghurt style dressing, so you can add this if you wish – or olive oil and lemon juice works well too.

I find this will make 3 portions for lunch … so means I do not have to think about lunches for a couple of days :-)

enjoy!EAT REAL FOOD
