Monday’s are always hectic.  With classes all day, getting a run in, cooking meals, and study time, my Monday’s are jam packed, so I always want to make a quick and easy lunch on Monday’s.  Today was no exception!  It’s 9:30PM, and I am just now getting a chance to sit down and write a quick post on my lunch today!  This is what study breaks are for! 🙂

Lunch today was one of my favorite go-to’s when I’m in a rush but still want something light and healthy that tastes great.  I found this Israeli salad on Pinterest from the following pin.

I love this salad!  It is so simple, delicious and good for you!  A while back, I was on a stuffed avocado kick, and I realized that an avocado stuffed with this deliciousness would be fantastic!  I was right!  It’s SO yummy!  If you would prefer, you could just chop up some avocado and add it to this salad recipe (this also makes a great salsa!), but stuffed avocados just look so neat and cute.  This easy meal looks like it takes A LOT more time than it does!  Here is the recipe!
