question of the month
What’s your go-to
healthy midday meal?
At the beginning of the week I buy green, red, orange and
yellow peppers, and cucumbers and carrots. I cut
them up, divide among five baggies and eat them every day for lunch. I add
peanuts for protein. —VEGGIEDUDE
Soup and salad. I always keep a
few cans of Campbell’s Healthy
Request in the cabinet, just in
case! —JOY HILEMAN BURGHARDT
Today I’m having instant
mashed potatoes with a can of
little beets, mixed together and
microwaved. —JACK STYGER

Maui Pizza, a Weight Watchers
recipe: wheat tortilla, swiss
cheese, deli ham, red pepper,
macadamia nuts and crushed
pineapple. Easy to make and
healthy! —JOSEPH GHALI
At work I’m a total snacker and rarely have a full lunch. So I snack
all day on almonds, carrots with hummus, apples and cheese sticks,
crackers and almond butter, drinkable yogurt. It’s food for a 4-year-old,
but I love it! —RACHEL_D
we talk back Some nutritionists say snacking throughout the day is healthier than
eating three big meals. We say, why should 4-year-olds have all the fun?

I love doing three-bean wraps
in whole wheat tortillas with
salad. —SARAH FILDES
For lunch I’ll often munch on a
handful of almonds along with some
vanilla yogurt and fresh blueberries.
Cheese, tomato, lettuce,
cucumber, apple sandwich on
wheat, plus a side of grapes.
we talk back We love canned
tuna mixed with a simple lemon
vinaigrette, lemon zest, chopped
cucumbers and any herbs we have on
hand. Give it a shot!
BIG salad, lots of greens, dried
cranberries, nuts, blue cheese,
LF raspberry dressing.

dressing sounds right up your
alley! Get the recipe at rachaelray
