healthy lunch: strawberry spinach sandwich + salad | two healthy lunch recipes that can be tossed together in 10 minutes or less; both the strawberry spinach sandwich and salad can feed a small crowd or pack up nicely for lunches and picnics! | www.nourishmovelove.comWe’re back with another variation of our 30 Minute Meal Series! So far Dietitian Stacie and I have teamed up to bring you breakfast in the form of a savory sweet potato, turkey sausage egg bowl + egg bake, made from the same wholesome ingredients {of course this meatless meal easily carries over into a dinner favorite too}. And dinner, lemon chicken with capers + garlic roasted veggies, a classic staple in both our households.

So now it’s time for a lunch recipe. Actually two lunch recipes with a very similar ingredient list, including some of my summer favorites — strawberries, spinach, and avocado.

I’m sharing a simple way to glam up your typical brown bag, turkey sandwich lunch. While Stacie is sharing a fresh Strawberry Spinach Salad with Strawberry Champagne Vinaigrette

Both the sandwich and salad are easy to make, and they feed a small crowd or pack up nicely for work lunches and summer picnics!

This simple, yet much sexier, turkey sandwich is only six ingredients — sprouted grain bread {or wrap or collard green wrap}, deli turkey, strawberries, baby spinach, avocado, and alfalfa sprouts. That’s right, no mayo necessary thanks to the creamy, ripe avocado.

And you can stack this healthy, summer sandwich together in 5 minutes or less!

I originally intended this recipe to be a quick lunch fix, but I think it would make the perfect party platter. Ladies, as you know we are about to enter the season of bridal and baby showers.

How delicious {and cute, let’s be honest pinterest has taken showers to a whole different level} would this sandwich/wrap platter be at a shower?! Talk about a super simple, instagram-worthy, crowd pleaser! 

No need to worry if you have vegans or vegetarians joining you because you can easily make this vegan-and-vegetarian-friendly by simply losing the turkey. With or without the protein, this strawberry spinach sandwich still provides a great deal of substance while packing plenty of flavor.

If the sandwich bar is already taken care of, you can turn this ingredient list into a fresh, party salad. I just love the sweet tang of the strawberries paired with the creamy richness of the avocado!
