What's for Lunch?

A lunch from home need not be boring, expensive, nor even time consuming to make. The lunch you see here took about 5 minutes to put together. We had homemade pizza for supper last night and I used leftover, crumbled Italian sausage, along with sharp chedder cheese to make two quesadillas for my husband's lunch. In the glass yogurt container there is salsa and > Farmers' Creamery sour cream (sold at Whole Foods or Seward Coop), which is wonderfully rich and has no added stabilizers such as pectin or guar gum.

I packed plenty of fresh fruit, including our current favorite > satsuma mandarins.

The yogurt is a whole milk, cream-top yogurt made by > Cultural Revolution. Not only does it have a clean, delicate taste, but it is low-sugar and low-carb with less then half the > sugar and carbs of > Stoneyfield's cream-top yogurts. For myself, if I am going to eat something with plenty of sugar I'd prefer a true dessert like this > peppermint chocolate molton cake (omg!!! yum!!!), rather then a food that can be so healthy like yogurt.

For a nourishing treat (because doesn't everyone need something extra yummy and special, especially when working a busy day at the office) I put locally made > Barsey's sugared almonds in a cute, resusable > Snack Taxi bag.

I am sharing this post with the > Nourishing Gourmet's Pennywise Platter and with > Food Renegade's Fight Back Fridays!
