Quick and easy meal ideas

Saturday, August 18, 2012

SparkCoach prompt ahead. :)

I'm actually really terrible at coming up with things that are simple, healthy, and fast. My one thing I do love is my turkey lavash wraps, inspired by the ones they sell at Kroger in the deli. I LOVE those things, and I'm so addicted to them. I asked the lady in the deli what they used for the filling, and she showed me the cheese spread they use. :)

So I use a green sandwich wrap, some spreadable garlic herb cheese (Alouette brand), low-sodium turkey, a couple of red leaf lettuce leaves, and occasionally a slice of low-sodium provolone cheese.

It's really filling, and can be sliced into pinwheels. I eat the whole thing (about 450 calories) or cut it in half when I'm not feeling the whole thing. A lot cheaper than spending $5 for the premade ones. :)

I also love throwing assorted raw veggies onto a plate. Carrots, broccoli, tomatoes, and some cheese cubes, and it's super yummy!

I suck at easy, though. I tend to default to breads or premade, high-sodium packaged things when I don't feel like cooking.

    Sounds like one of my go to lunches when other things aren't available. Except, I've laid off the cheese now for most things.

    It sounds good. I am going to write this down and when I go to the store get these ingredients. Lately, I have been very careful about what I am eating. I am still walking 4 miles a day, trying to keep busy.

    Oh, I love that idea! I even have a mini crockpot I could do just one in, for me!

    Yum, I will have to try that wrap. My favorite thing to make is chicken breast in a crock pot with a jar of salsa. Shred it when it's done and you can do tacos, burritos, chicken on a salad. I even made an omelet with it.
