A hearty salad or grain bowl is the perfect way to combine all the necessary elements of a mid-day meal. I love a giant bowl of greens, mixed with protein, veggies, and perhaps a grain. There are so many possibilities! To satiate your appetite AND wanderlust, introduce ingredients such as miso, tahini, curry powder, or yuzu. Elevate a sandwich or wrap with a swipe of tapenade, a dash of cumin, or a hint of jalapeno. And in the end, never underestimate the power of coarse sea salt or some freshly cracked peppercorns.
