Cranberry Goat Cheese Salad

One of my go to lunches is a salad. I like them simple, with just a few key ingredients. I can quickly prepare my salad in the morning before work or right before lunch when I'm home. This one is filling enough to stand as a meal and contains protein and healthy fats as well as a generous serving of leafy green vegetables. It also tastes delicious.

Tofu, Cashew and Vegetable Stir Fry

This dish is a favorite has been a favorite of my family for years. It is full of healthy vegetables and can be adapted to what you have on hand. I find that tofu works much better than chicken in a stir fry, but you could use chicken as well. It works best if all the ingredients are cut up ahead of time. If you are short on time before dinner you could get everything ready in the morning or the night before. Use an oil with a high smoke point (not olive oil). I serve this with brown rice, a little bit of Asian hot sauce and an Asian sesame dressing or a little more soy sauce.
