The Making of a Massive Marcus Lunch!

Was kind of bored this afternoon so I decided to take pictures of my lunch being made.

I had a bunch of vegetables that needed to be used up so I got the knife and cutting board out and went to work. I cut everything nice and thin and cooked them in the oven on a round cookie sheet with some olive oil and a touch of Cajun seasoning for some zip!

After my vegetables were cooked I mixed them up and put them in a container. Then I BBQ's 6 chicken breasts that I had marinating in the fridge. After the chicken was cooked and cooled I sliced it all up into another container and got some other ingredients ready.

Next it was time to put it all together and plate it! It's a BBQ'd chicken sandwich with roasted vegetables, sliced tomato, baby spinach, and spicy mustard on a thin round multi grain bun. Served with a side of more baby spinach, sliced pineapple, strawberries, a glass of skim milk and my daily multi-vitamin.

And the final picture is my close up artistic shot. Good enough for a magazine. More than good enough for lunch! BURP! Excuse me :)

I think it's a good mix of vegetables, fruit, protein and carbs.

Thanks for following!



  1. MMMmmm....I want to come eat at YOUR house :)

  2. I love colorful food! Looks delicious!

  3. Are those the 100 calorie sandwich thins? That looks like a great meal. Like Julia said..nice colors too.

  4. I like taking the time to make the food look good as well as taste good. I think there is an art to cooking. I was missing the red pepper today.

    Obviously lots of leftovers. I can add the vegetable mix to almost anything. On the side, in my breakfast omelette, etc etc... A good way to get a shot of veggies added to my meals.

    I just looked Al and those buns are 170 calories.
