Complete ingredient list in photo.

You’ll need a sharp knife, a cutting board, and a bowl. Mix everything in a large bowl, grab a spoon and dig in! Or, you can impress your lunch guests and serve this on lettuce leaves. Easily serves 3-4, depending on portion size! Remember, you can adjust the seasonings to suit your taste buds. You can follow Vanessa on Instagram at @vanessa_eats_clean_food.

F Cucumber rolls

Cucumber and Prosciutto with Olives on Skewers, @primaldish

  • 1 cucumber, peeled and julienned (or sliced very thin) lengthwise into 6 slices
  • 3 slices of prosciutto, cut in half lengthwise into 6 slices
  • 8 kalamata olives
  • 1 teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 skewer sticks

Start with one olive on the end of each of your skewers. Next, lay the cucumbers slices flat on a tray or plate. Place one slice of prosciutto on top of each cucumber, then roll it up and carefully stick the skewer through the middle of the cucumber roll. Repeat, placing an olive in between each cucumber roll, and then repeat on the second skewer. Once you have two loaded skewers on your plate, whisk together olive oil and vinegar and drizzle over the top. If desired, add salt & pepper.  Find more recipes like this at www.PrimalDish.com

F Sausage

Sausage, Onion and Pepper Sandwich, @whole_in_onehundred

  • 2 compatible Italian Sausages
  • 1/2 Red onion- sliced
  • 1/2 Bell pepper
  • Baby arugula
  • Dijon- read your labels! Annie’s is a great compatible brand

Start by slicing the Italian sausages lengthwise down the middle, but don’t cut all the way through. Pan sear for a couple of minutes on each side until the edges are crispy and browned. Set aside. Next take your sliced pepper and onion and sauté in olive oil till soft and fragrant. Pile the sausages high with baby arugula, caramelized onion and peppers, and Dijon. Find more recipes like this on Instagram at @whole_in_onehundred.

F Egg Roll Ups

Effortless Egg Rolls with Pickled Vegetables, @sustainabledish

Makes two rolls (one lunch serving)

  • 4 pastured eggs
  • 1 scallion, diced
  • 1 tsp butter, bacon fat or coconut oil for frying
  • 2 toasted nori wrappers
  • 4 TBS sauerkraut (use your favorite kind – I really like Wildbrine Madra Curry & Cauliflower in this recipe)
  • 1 TBS fish roe for garnish (optional)
  • A square shaped omelet pan works nicely with this dish, but is not necessary.

Mix two of the eggs and half of the diced scallion in a bowl. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Heat the fat in the pan, then pour the egg in the pan. Cook until just set. When done, place on a sheet of nori. In the center of the egg, place 2 TBS sauerkraut and lay it lengthwise. Roll the seaweed and eggs up, including the sauerkraut. Garnish with fish roe if you wish. Use toothpicks to hold wraps in place if you’re traveling with them.

F Salad

Summer Salad, @clean_eating_journal

Start with your favorite salad base (arugula, kale, baby spinach, romaine). Add any protein (chicken, salmon, shrimp, tuna salad, chicken salad, canned fish or meat, hard-boiled eggs). Include some seasonal fruits (berries, peaches, watermelon, apples, grapes, jicama). Throw in more veggies for crunch (cucumber, red onion, diced peppers, celery). Sprinkle some chopped nuts (pecans, almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds). Top with EVOO + lemon juice or balsamic, or your favorite #Whole30 dressing from @tessemaes. DONE.
