Make Your "Meat Dish" Mostly Veggies

This Sparked Me!

I have a hard time eating veggies, but I've found that many meat dishes can be "cut" with them! Tuna salad, ground beef, even burgers. When you make them, put in more cut up veggies, like celery. The veggies tend to take on the flavor of the spices you are cooking your met in! You save calories and fat by cutting down on the meat, but you don't sacrifice the flavor at all. One "meat dish" serving can then also include a full serving of veggies!

A really good veggie-loaded "main course" are Asian-inspired lettuce wraps. 3 oz of turkey plus ~1.5 oz chopped celery (that's 2/3 of a serving), with some hoison sauce (2 tbsp). Fills two leaves- about 1.5 serv veggies! Only 170 calories, and 18 g of protein :)
