I was in the mood for something quick after fighting 108º F weather and commuter traffic today in the blast furnace summertime of Dallas, so I went for something that looks great, tastes great, and is sure to boost my spirits to face another day just like this one tomorrow.
I harvested my lentil sprouts this morning, so they had been in the fridge all day, just chillin’. Summertime is a great time for good-tasting tomatoes, when the taste hasn’t been compromised by refrigeration, and I can never turn away from a just-ripe avocado!
I had some organic corn tortillas that were very low in sodium and no oils, and I had some spicy tomato sauce left over from last week that was just enough to mix in with my sprouts. I pulled three tortillas out of the storage bag, heated them for 20 seconds, covered with a paper plate, in the microwave oven.
To get my quota of cruciferous veggies for the day, I steamed some brussels sprouts and diced butternut squash I had prepared for steaming over the weekend. This couldn’t have been any easier! Faster than waiting in a drive-thru line at a greasy hamburger joint where I used to spend my money.
The result was a full stomach, nutritious perfection, and I was done with it all by 7 p.m. Time to kick up my feet and watch some baseball!
