Looking for a quick and healthy lunch that’s perfect during your transition out of a juice only Reboot…or any day for that matter? These delicious pockets are packed with nutrients and flavor. Plus, they’re super simple to make, easy to customize and freeze well to help you stick with your healthy eating goals when the busy week gets in the way.
You could certainly make your own dough but I like to use store-bought gluten-free pockets to help save time. But be super picky. Read the ingredients well and be sure to avoid products with the Top 5 Chemicals that Turn Our Food Toxic or the Top 5 Food Ingredients You Should Never Eat. If your great grandmother wouldn’t eat it, you probably shouldn’t either.
Aim for balance with a whole grain pocket, protein-rich lentils, phytonutrient packed greens, and antioxidant rich pumpkin. A fall favorite year round! In the off season, look for boxed pumpkin that’s BPA free. Eat the rainbow with this beautiful, satisfying lunch.
