This lunch took a little experimenting to get just right, but now it is a staple in our house. Flavours lean towards the sweet end with the meatball sauce and the fruits in the khorasan salad. But the meatballs also provide a spicy kick, and the salad a refreshing tartness with the pomegranate seeds. We also liked the way cumber refreshes our palate as we eat.
Healthy: This lunch is intentionally a healthy option that also manages to be very tasty. It includes a whole grain, which doesn't spike your blood sugar and will keeps us feeling full. The meatballs are made using a lean ground turkey-breast, which is lower in calories, but also protein rich. Grapes and cucumbers have lots of healthy fiber while also being hydrating.
