A quick healthy lunch

I am a meal planner. I like the organization of meal planning. I can plan breakfast, dinners and snacks but I am a complete failure at planning lunches! Quick clarification, I can plan everyone else’s lunch but somehow I’m lost as to what I should eat.

I found a solution. This quick salad is great because it doesn’t require a lot of fuss and only a few ingredients.

All you need:

one tomato

1/2 an avocado. Here are the health benefits of avocados.

Salt/Pepper to taste(watch the salt folks. Use sparingly)

Chop it all up and, VIOLA! A quick salad that is delicious and nutritious!
