All week I've been eating salads for lunch. This was yesterday's creation. It started out with a bed of organic baby spinach and Iceberg lettuce.
Then sliced strawberries were added along with strips of orange bell pepper. The three-pack was on sale this week at Aldi, the multicolor red, orange and yellow was priced at a dollar forty-nine for a package. Wow, they're usually over three dollars for three peppers.
Then I added a diced Roma tomato (four for forty-nine cents making them about twelve cents each) and a few Garbanzo beans. I open a can and run cold water over the contents and drain the beans using the lid. Then I transfer them to a covered container for use all week. I do the same thing with organic black beans.
To top the salad off I added a boiled egg and served it with Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing.

Topped off with a small amount of shredded Queso Quesadilla cheese and a boiled egg, this was truly a filling lunch.
