New Lunch Menu Items at the Cloverleaf Café

Saturday, October 01, 2011

I mostly eat salads for lunch made with lots of veggies and a variety of protein options, but I do like a good sandwich now and then as well. So my menu options look like this:

Veggie Chopped Salad (Three Ways)
¾ cup each of 3-4 different veggies (chopped celery, carrots, sweet peppers, cherry tomatoes,etc)
sliced green onions to taste
1 Tablespoon Newman’s Lite Dressing (I fancy the Sesame Ginger) or other lite dressing of choice
****Choice of Protein:
with ¼ cup albacore tuna packed in water (drained and rinsed): total salad 200 calories or 2 WW points
with ½ garbanzo (or other) bean: total salad 246 calories, or 4 WW points
with 2-3 oz cooked shrimp, turkey, or chicken: approx 250 calories or 3 WW points

Tuna Salad Sandwich with Crudities
1 thin whole wheat sandwich thin, lightly toasted
¼ cup albacore tuna packed in water (drained and rinsed), 2 tsp. mayo, and ¼ cup chopped celery combined together
Serve with assorted crudities (carrot and celery sticks, slices of sweet peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc) – approximately 250 calories, depending on choice of veggies, or 5 WW points

Cheesy Tomato English Muffin (This is also on the breakfast menu and you will probably see it again on the dinner menu)
Toast one whole wheat English Muffin. Top each half with a slice or two of ripe tomato and ½ oz grated cheese of choice. Broil for a minute or two until cheese is slightly browned and bubbly. Serve with raw veggies of choice (carrots, celery, sweet peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc) - approximately 300 calories, depending on choice of veggies or 7 WW points

Turkey Breast Burger Sandwich with Crudities
1 Turkey Breast Burger (I make these for dinner one night and then have one for lunch the next day)

1 whole wheat sandwich thin
Mustard or condiment of choice
Choices of fresh veggies (carrots, celery, artichoke, jicama, cherry tomatoes, etc)
Approximately 300 calories depending on veggies and condiment choice or 6 WW points

Vegetable Fried Rice
½ cup each chopped carrots, celery, and mushrooms lightly sautéed in 1 tsp olive oil
Add additional veggies (1/2 cup chopped spinach and or cabbage, green onions) and 1/2 cup cooked brown rice. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add one lightly beaten egg, cook until set. Add a teaspoon of low sodium soy sauce (optional). Approximately 300 calories or 5 WW points.

Bon Appetit!
