There are tons of meal prep worthy recipes out there to make lunch a breeze 💨


If you’re dealing with type 2 diabetes and want to keep your blood sugar stable all day, planning for lunch is important! Remember ☝🏽 if you get to lunchtime and you’re super hungry…


You likely won’t make a good lunch decision.


But never fear! I’m here to help you with recipes and strategies to make sure you NEVER go in without a plan.


My spin on “cowboy caviar” is PACKED with nutrition, and will keep you full and stable all afternoon.


✔️Fiber

✔️Protein

✔️Micros


All of which help stabilize blood sugar and keep your metabolism going.


Mix it up on a Sunday afternoon to have for lunch all week!


Here’s how you make it:


1/2 C dry quinoa

1 1/4 C cherry tomatoes, halved

1 red pepper, diced

1 green, diced

1/2 small red onion, diced

1 can chickpeas, drained

1 can black eyed peas (or black beans), drained

1 can corn, drained

1 Tbsp lime juice

1 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar

Dash of salt and pepper


First, cook the quinoa according to directions on package.


Combine the ingredients in a bowl, mix, and store in the fridge up to 5 days (freshest within 3).


Stuff the mixture into a whole wheat pita bread, or on top of a bed of greens - whichever fits YOUR carb goals best! Top with 1/2 an avocado for fun.
