Today I decided to make a quick and healthy vegetarian lunch, after a few weeks of being ill and eating junk.
I boiled some sweet potato for about 15mins until soft, then threw in some sugar snap peas for the last 5 mins. While they were cooking, I put a few handfuls of mixed leaves on my plate. The cut up half an avocado and a quarter of cucumber and sprinkled them on top. I broke out, and dusted off, my spiraliser. I hadn’t used it in a while, so I spiralled a carrot and put that in the salad too.
When the potato and sugar snap peas were done I added them to the mix. I also dolloped on some cottage cheese to get some protein. Really this ended up with too much sugar in it from the sweet potato, and could have done with more protein and less carbs. But…as a veggietarian it’s tricky to get the proteins…
