Chickpea and tofu salad is a new favorite in our family. It is both heart healthy and delicious. It’s packed with plant protein and fiber and is also a great option for those who are vegan and gluten free. These days everyone in my family is eating clean and will usually ask me to make a salad bowl. This colorful and delicious salad has become part of my salad recipes. There’s nothing like a fresh salad. Salads are of course healthy and contrary to popular belief they can be quite filling and satisfying! This particular salad is a combination of greens, cucumber, tomatoes, and some fruit which gives it a fresh taste. Add in some chickpeas and tofu with my special homemade dressing and you have a great meal! It’s unbelievably tasty and nutritious too! I love eating leftovers all week long. This super delicious salad is full of flavor and textures and is really easy to prepare.Add to favorites
What’s for lunch or dinner? This is a question most of us struggle with on a daily basis.

So I have decided to come up with some great, easy, and healthy choices for lunch and dinner. It’s a long time overdue and no more excuses! I would love to get your thoughts on these suggestions and if you find them helpful.
Check out the below menu for one week’s worth of lunches/dinners. I have also provided some tips and suggestions to make it easy. It may be helpful to read the entire menu before and make a shopping list for the ingredients you need. Plan to do your shopping the day before you cook.
