If you would like to have lots of energy after your lunch, I would warmly recommend to keep it low fat or even fat free.
Just like with breakfast, you can keep it very simple.
All the options that we suggested for breakfast would work for lunch.
If you need to bring lunch with you, you can blend double smoothie in the morning and bring half of it in a vacuum-sealed glass jar.
If you crave something savoury, you can make fruit based dressings.
My Spicy Green Goddess Soup is one of my personal favourites, that I discovered when I had one of these “nothing to eat” days. That’s how I discovered most of my favourite recipes, by the way.
Spicy Green Goddess Soup
1 head of lettuce (regular or Romaine) (626 g / 1.38 lb)
5-7 Medjool or Mazafati dates (120 g / 0.26 lb)
1/8 tsp chilly pepper or you favourite spice mix
Chop on top or make noodles with julienne peeler from:
1 long English cucumber (200 g / 0.44 lb)
It’s one of the most delicious raw vegan soups I’ve ever tried. Spicy, refreshing and deeply satisfying.
Here is another dressing recipe I discovered during the peach season. It’s absolutely scrumptious and super simple.
Sweet and Savoury Peach Dressing With Indian Flair
3 fully ripe, peeled peaches (blended peel is quite sour) (450 g / 1 lb)
3 ripe tomatoes (369 g / 0.8 lb)
1/2 tsp of ginger, fresh or powdered
1/8 tsp of fresh turmeric or turmeric powder
1/8 tsp of black pepper
1/4 tsp of cumin (powder or whole)
This dressing tastes fantastic on a bed of cucumber noodles or zoodles.
Chopped onion and tomato can help to add additional texture and flavour.
NB! If you can’t get peaches, you can replace them with 150 g / 0.3 lb of dried apricots (half for blending and half for adding on top), soak for an hour for easier blending, healthier teeth and better flavour.
