Whole Lotta Lunch 1: Tahini Kale Slaw and Roasted Tamari Portobello Bowl

This week I made the Tahini Kale Slaw and Roasted Tamari Portobello Bowl from The Sprouted Kitchen Bowl and Spoon Cookbook. TIP: I followed the recipe for the dressing and dumped the entire bowl onto the greens/carrots. I found it to be too much dressing!  Start with a little and add more to your taste. Also, this recipe easily makes enough for 4 lunches – especially if you are generous with the kale.

Despite having a big breakfast, I am typically hungry again around 10am, so as a snack this week, I will have a Greek yogurt parfait. To make these, I use small glass jars (pictured below) and layer plain Greek yogurt, a drizzle of agave, some granola and raspberries. TIP: Add the granola each morning to keep it from getting soggy!

As an afternoon snack, I will have an apple and mozzarella cheese stick.

I added 1/2 an avocado to the bowl each morning (so it would keep fresh).

I will be sharing “what I ate for lunch” on Friday of each week, so stay tuned!  Do you have any great lunch recipes? I’d love to hear from you!
