What is for Lunch Today?

People often ask me, "what is for lunch today?" Well this is my answer for today. Recipes Included!

Lunch Menu

1 – Spinach Salad with Brocolli, Carrots, Onion, Tomato, and Avocado

2 – Chicken with Stewed Onion Pepper and Tomato

3 – Steamed Brussel Sprouts

4 – Riceless Sushi???

Steamed Brussel Sprouts

  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Olive Oil to taste
  • Salt to taste

Steam the Brussel Sprouts for 10 minutes or so, then add olive oil and salt to taste.


  • 1 Chicken Breast (Large)
  • 1 Large Tomato
  • ¼ to ½ Red Onion
  • ½ Green Pepper
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Red Pepper Flakes
  • Oregano
  • Garlic Powder
  • ½ tbsp Coconut Oil

Defrost chicken, and heat pan with coconut oil. Add chicken breast to coconut oil and cook on one side for 3 minutes. Add onions to pan while chicken is cooking. Flip the chicken over and add tomatoes, and bell pepper. Get a good stir fry going and season to taste with Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper, Oregano, and Garlic Powder. Put a lid over the pan for 3 minutes. At this point the chicken should be cooked through and the veggies stewing nicely. Remove lid, re-season and evaporate unwanted moisture if necessary.

Riceless Sushi (makes 2 rolls)

  • 2 sheets Nori
  • ½ Roma Tomato
  • 2 Mini Carrots
  • ½ Small Avocado
  • 1 Handful of fresh Spinach
  • 4-5 fresh basil leaves
  • Hot Sauce of your liking
  • 1 small can of Sardines (Get what you like, I used plain sardines in water. And YES, I would love to have used Ahi Tuni or smoked salmon, but I am on a budget damn-it!!!)

Lay out a sheet of nori as if you were going to make sushi. Start by getting a layer of spinach (As seen in the photo), and add the rest of your ingredients. Make sure to keep slices thin for easy rolling. Roll as if it were real sushi, and wet the closing edge of the nori with a little water so it will hold together. Note: There would be almost infinite variations on this so get creative.


  1. Good stuff, I really like the sushi idea, I will have to give that a try.

  2. Yeah, you can even be more legit with it if you make cauliflower rice and use that instead of spinach.
