Lunch:  Place two thin slices of skinless free range chicken, 1 tsp. of Dijon mustard, 1 cup of soft romaine lettuce tossed in 1/2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil, 1tsp of hummus, and a few slices of chopped red tomato, into a small, warm 100% whole wheat or gluten free wrap.  Add to this 
an organic,  sliced, cold, delicious, deep colored orange, and enjoy!   Serve with warm green tea and a tall glass of cool, clean water, with a splash of lemon. ​ ***** Allow lunchtime to be a few minutes in which we slow down the pace of our daily lives.  Relaxing and enjoying meals helps to keep us mentally and physically well balanced.
Dinner: Place a 3 oz slice of wild salmon in a glass oven dish, drizzle with lemon juice (1 tbs) and a pinch of chopped dill. Place in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes, (cooking time depends upon the thickness of the filet).  Steam 1 cup of organic broccoli, carrots, and spinach.  Bake 1 small sweet potato.  Place it all on a bed of your favorite deep green and purple, organic lettuces.  Include 1 small, 100% whole wheat (or gluten free) dinner roll, 1 tsp of hummus, and a glass of nonfat milk (or lactose free nonfat milk, nonfat rice milk, or soy milk - with calcium and vitamin D added), and complete the dinner with 1/2 cup of sliced, warmed, delicious peaches. Serve with a cup of warm herbal tea and a glass of cool water with lemon. *****

Place a handful of organic lettuce and baby spinach on a plate. Dribble 1 tsp. of extra
virgin olive oil, and 1 tsp. of balsamic vinegar

Add a few organic strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, walnuts, and raisins. Top it off
with 1 teaspoon of nonfat Greek yogurt. 
Include 1 slice of low calorie, thin, 100%
whole wheat (or gluten free) toast, to your breakfast. Spread 1 tsp. of rich, creamy
hummus on top, and have an 8 oz glass
