This is my typical lunch: A big salad.
The base of the salad is dark lettuce with carrots. Sometimes I'll add some beets, celery, cucumbers, or sunflower seeds. I always include some form of protein, such as kidney beans, chik peas, lentils, or tofu. Here, I've added Follow Your Heart's Chicken Free Chicken. The salad is topped with two tablespoons of Follow Your Heart's Thousand Island dressing.
I pair the salad occasionally with a slice of bread or a side of pasta and always include fresh fruit for dessert.
Follow Your Heart is a favorite stop of mine. They are a vegetarian grocery store in Canoga Park, just a mile and a half from my office. In addition, there is a fantastic cafe in the back of the store with delicious healthy vegetarian items.
Follow Your Heart is located at 21825 Sherman Way in Canoga Park.
