add chicken into crockpot along with 1 can of salsa verde from Trader Joes (any brand will work I just love the TJ brand!) cook on low for 3-4 hours this makes it delicious!

Spread pesto onto the coconut wrap and add cheese, I used raw chedder, protein, I used organic turkey from Costco, lettuce, and roll up and cut into pinwheels. served with a raw carrot, dates, kiwi (any fruit!) full a meal full of protein, carbs, fat, and micronutrients!

Meal 5 Hard Boiled Egg + Beet Salad
bring water to boil and boil eggs for 12 mins exactly. immediately transfer into ice water bowl to make the eggs easy to peel!
Beet Salad
add precooked beets (I get mine from costco!) and drizzle with vinegar, olive oil, and vinegar (I love balsamic vinegar or even a splash of apple cider vinegar is good too!) and top with feta cheese and salt
add hard boiled eggs, 2-3 to a glass container along with beet salad and a serving of fruit for more carbs + minerals!

  2. these ideas all look so fun!
    as a teacher, I pretty much love just prepping a bunch of random ingredients on Sunday and mixing them differently to make "bowls" throughout the week….or I make a decked out salad with simple mills crackers, plantain chips, sourdough, etc. on the side!

  3. yess love your back to work/school content☺️ and also jovial pasta!
    i just finished school, got married, and moved to portland so i’m looking for new recipes—thanks cambria!

    my favorite lunch recipe is either a salmon bowl (rice/quinoa, glazed salmon, avocado, carrot, etc) or ground turkey sautéed in a hoisin-style sauce/coconut aminos with a kale salad :))

  4. I have been making omelettes for lunch, so definitely love what you’ve shared today! Typically I just use eggs and whatever veggies I have laying around. I need some variety!!!
