Lunch is my toughest meal. If I don’t have leftovers from dinner I am usually at a loss and I have no idea why. I mean, it’s food. I love food. I have no troubles with breakfast or dinner but for some dang reason lunch totally trips me up. Before I started to eat clean and combat my Candida overgrowth, I would eat nachos every day for lunch. I’m not even exaggerating. Nachos. Matt would come home and ask me what I had to eat (yes, these are the bizarre questions we genuinely enjoy talking about) and he would disapprovingly shake his head when he’d hear my answer. I never understood why. I put flipping lettuce and various fresh vegetables on top of my chips. It’s not a big deal.
Okay, so it wasn’t the healthiest choice for my body. So sue me. But I will say that my creativity has been awakened now that I am not able to rely on ol’ trusty nachos. Every day for lunch it’s something new and so far these Falafel Collard Wraps are one of my favorite meals, mainly because I can throw everything together quickly, wrap them up and dip them into a sauce created by plain yogurt, diced cucumbers, and dill. So tasty!

Here’s to a cleaner year, a cleaner you, and to lunch. And the groundhog.
