I like to post a lot of food photos on Instagram, (which I’m sure you already know) because I find it such an easy way to get inspired myself if I don’t know what to cook, particularly if I check a hashtag like #eatclean or the Tone It Up one. I get a lot of comments asking me to show how I make things, and whilst I do recipe videos on my health channel, sometimes I feel like things might be too simple to put in a video, or I don’t have time to set up lights and my tripod in the kitchen when I’m making a quick lunch. I can however, snap a photo on my “proper” camera and a quick little post on how I made it, which I hope will be really helpful and give some ideas. I love reading quick lunch ideas on other blogs so I hope you enjoy this just as much. I’m also looking to build a recipe index on the site so you can refer to that, keep your eyes peeled!
This was something I rustled up today when I wasn’t sure what to eat. I’ve been really enjoying rye bread recently, I blame Joe and the Juice and the fantastic rye panini style sandwiches they sell there, they are to die for! I can’t quite find rye bread that tastes the same to recreate it properly at home, but I do love it nonetheless. I’m not the biggest sandwich fan in the traditional sense – pre packed supermarket sandwiches are my personal idea of hell and if I do have to pick something like that up I always go for a wrap, pasta salad or a panini instead. At home I’m not as picky but I do gravitate towards toasted/warm sandwiches. Everything tastes better on my panini press!
Recently I’ve been going for a lot of ‘open’ sandwiches which not only halve the carbs if like me you’re watching that, but also allow you to pile it high with toppings that might otherwise make a traditional sandwich impractical. Think of it as a more nutritious version of beans on toast! I toasted my bread and spread some hummus on there before topping it with balsamic veggies – peppers and red onion to be precise. I have a love affair with grilled peppers and onion and would gladly add them to every meal if I possibly could! In fact I normally do. Instead of grilling today I fried them in a non-stick pan (if you have a decent pan you can forego any oil) and added some balsamic vinegar for the last couple of minutes until they had a slightly caramelised appearance. So good, and so quick!
