I didn’t bring anything from home for lunch today so I just popped down to the supermarket and grabbed a few things. I wanted to show how easy it can be to make a raw lunch with ingredients from a standard supermarket without using any special equipment. All you need is a knife, a fork and a board or a plate. I managed to walk to the supermarket, make my lunch and sit down to eat in less than an hour. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be complicated or take a long time. Just watch, everyone in your office will be asking you about it and wanting some too!
1 red bell pepper
mixed shredded veges (this mix had carrot, broccoli stalks and beetroot in a prepacked bag)
6 brazil nuts
sea salt or himalayan salt
1. Cut the red bell bepper in half and remove the stalk and seeds
2. Scoop out 1/4 of an avocado into each half pepper and mash in with a fork to fill all the nooks and crannies
3. Add some shredded veges and some chopped brazil nuts
4. Squeeze some lemon juice over the top and a sprinkle of salt
You can use any veges or salad mix that you find at your local supermarket to stuff the peppers with. I prefer to use salad mixes that don’t have any dressing as you can’t be sure of what’s in them. I used brazil nut here as they are really high in selenium and they also have a really savoury taste, but use any other raw nuts or seeds that you like or leave them out altogether.
