When you are looking for quick and healthy meals ideas a salad and a smoothie are a perfect combination!
This Cantaloupe Orange Smoothie is filled with fruit, which makes it a great beverage for a quick lunch. The smoothie uses orange juice as a base, and then adds in some cantaloupe and banana, for lots of fruit in one delicious glass.
One of the reasons I like this smoothie so much is that I am really not a big fan of orange juice. It is such a healthy beverage – but I just don’t like to drink it. With this smoothie I get all the vitamins and nutrients of orange juice, but the cantaloupe makes it taste completely different.
- 1 cup orange juice
- 1 cup chopped cantaloupe
- 1/2 banana
- Combine all the ingredients in a blender and mix well.

For a quick lunch I combine my smoothie with a tasty salad, like one of the Ready Pac Bistro Bowl Salads from Wegmans. I really enjoy eating salads for lunch, but somehow I am rarely motivated to make my own! It is so much more convenient to grab a few already made salads when I am at Wegmans. There are so many varieties it is hard to pick a favorite.
I like the Spinach Dijon and the Santa Fe Style, but for this lunch I used the new Chopped Greek Salad with Feta Cheese.
The salads are cleverly packaged with the salad greens on the bottom, and all the fixings in a container on top. They even include a fork! This Greek salad was tasty, and had a generous serving of olives, chicken and Feta Cheese.
At my local Wegmans the salads are in a display right inside the front door, which makes them easy to grab for a quick meal!
