  3. Fruit Salad will be a great addition to a simple lunch. Toss together your favorite fruits (blueberries, cantaloupe, oranges, and strawberries) and enjoy.
  4. Broccoli with light hummus will satisfy you for your afternoon snack and cool you down. Raw broccoli and cold hummus, will keep your taste buds happy and your stomach full.
