Looking for a quick, high-protein lunch you can make in minutes? This is it. It’s fresh, filling, and full of plant-based protein, fiber, and essential fatty acids.

Salt and pepper to taste (add a dash of cayenne if you like spice)


1. Toss together all ingredients until the mixture is evenly distributed.
2. Eat immediately or chill in the fridge for a few hours. High-protein lunch done!
