More on the Go Meals

Being gluten free and working outside the house from about 7am to 7pm most days requires me to eat a LOT of my meals out, on the go, away from home, a stove , or even a kitchen.


Sardine Boats
This is a fabulously nutritious lunch chock full of vitamins, minerals, EFA's, fiber, and is gluten and dairy free to boot. OH yah, and can be prepared with a plastic knife and fork as your only utensils. (No, you dont even need a plate!)

Slice a bell pepper into quarters, and remove the seeds.
Slice an avocado open into quarters.
Pry open a can of sardines in olive oil or water, or mustard if you like the flavored ones.

Smash a piece of avocado into the bell pepper quarter, and then lay a whole sardine from the can on top of the avocado. Press it down a bit, so the pepper holds all the ingredients.

Eat your boats! mmmmmmm.....
Try this with oysters too.

the breakdown

1 avocado has 13.5 g of fiber, 4 g protein, and 163 mcg Folic acid
1 can of sardines has 1 g Omega 3 , 20 g protein, 350 mgs calcium
1 bell pepper has 2.5 g fiber, 150 mg vit C
