What's for lunch?

I ask myself this question everyday...shortly after breakfast.  I am the type of person that likes to think about my next meal like some sort of sick virtual appetizer.  Maybe this is because it is easy for lunch to get mundane.   I find myself shopping for breakfast and dinner, and end up foraging around for something in the middle of the day.  That is probably why I have become addicted to this fast and healthy lunch.  If you take your lunch to work, spend about five minutes the night before preparing it, it is wilt and stale proof, I promise!

The salad: cherry tomatoes, red onion (OK so maybe not ideal for a work lunch), English cucumber, feta, red pepper.

The dressing: fresh squeezed lemon juice, olive oil, Greek seasoning (if you have it).

Flat bread: Trader Joe's Spicy Spinach Pizza (140 calories, 2 grams of fat), one slice prosciutto, scant sprinkle of whatever cheese you have around (I prefer, feta, goat, or Parmesan for this). Pop it under the broiler until the cheese is golden.

As always with my cooking these are methods, not recipes, so substitute to meet your dietary preferences.
