Quick Easy Lunch Idea

I ate the same lunch for five years. Peanut butter sandwich (natural pb on homemade whole grain bread). It was delicious for five years and then, just like that, I was burned out. 😉

Now, I’m always on the lookout for a new, easy, healthy lunch idea. I came up with this one on my own and have been loving it.

1 brown rice Food for Life tortilla (or whatever big tortilla you like)

A few slices of purple onion

Several grape tomatoes cut in halves

Cooked chicken breast

Shredded cheese- I usually put a little mozzarella and a little Parmesan or Parmesan and a little cheddar.

– You can put a little hummus on the tortilla, but I didn’t have any when I came up with this and I’ve just stuck with it.

Put everything on the tortilla and bake at 350 until cheese melts. Slice like a pizza and enjoy. You can get creative and put other veggies on it. Enjoy!
