Here's a colorful lunch that's filling and balanced! We have roasted sweet potato slices (slice a sweet potato, drizzle with olive oil and roast in a preheated 375 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes), plus grapes, apple, dried coconut, sliced ham (I use Applegate ham, which is free of dairy, gluten and casein, but of course any meat will do here), and rice noodles with tomato, broccoli, olive oil and nutritional yeast.
Nutritional yeast is kind of amazing. It adds a boost of savory flavor (kind of like cheese) but it's vegan. Be sure to read the label to make sure that your nutritional yeast is not made from whey. Here's the one I use. I cooked and drained the rice noodles, and then sauteed some chopped tomato and broccoli in olive oil. After about a minute, I added the rice noodles and stirred to make sure the ingredients were evenly distributed. I added a tablespoon of nutritional yeast, gave it a final stir and that was that - it took all of 5 minutes!
