Here's an easy to make lunch plate that I brought to work to make sure I have a nutritious and delicious midday meal.
Cut Japanese tofu into rectangles and grill. Top this with onions and black beans sautéed with olive oil.
Boil okra for 4 minutes. Don’t overcook so that it won’t get too soggy.
Cut out avocado strips and have on the side.
This can be eaten warm or cold but as the days get warmer, serving it cold might be more refreshing. This is a very filling meal and is loaded with good stuff.
Avocados are a good source of potassium, protein, vitamins and dietary fiber. Okra is also an excellent source of vitamins, fiber, iron and calcium. Tofu is another healthy food that can supply you with iron, calcium, protein and omega 3. Try this nutrient-loaded plate! ;)
