Homemade Goodness Locked Inside a Whole Grain Tortilla Shell

Basically, you will always require four ingredient categories: the shell or wrap, a protein source such as lean meat or drained beans, vegetables and spices. Whole grains can also be added; one of the best whole grain sources is cooked rice as it marries well with the traditional Spanish spices and flavor combinations.

Summer Squash Wrap Recipe

The ingredients: yellow squash, light sour cream, drained black beans, ground chili powder, cracked black pepper, salt, and a flour tortilla shell.

Opt for a shell that contains less than 100 calories when available; we like a local store's brand which contains a skinny 80 kcals.

Begin preparation by slicing the squash lengthwise into this strips. Either grill the squash or cook in a non-stick pan on the stovetop using cooking spray. Salt and pepper for seasoning.

Next, add chili powder to the drained beans and heat well in the microwave. Also, warm the flour shell.

Now we're ready to build out wrap. Add strips of the yellow squash to the shell then top with the seasoned beans and a bit of reduced fat sour cream. Roll and enjoy. These are truly delicious and if you have a bounty of summer squash that you just don't know what to do with - this is a great way to use it up in a very flavorful manner.

Great Side Dishes That Add Healthy Values to a Dieter's Meal Plate

The next time that you steam a batch of white rice, make it a generous batch because it can be used for all sorts of tasty creations when one is dieting - or not, for that matter.

It can be stuffed into homemade burritos, it can be added to a skillet of lean cooked meat of your choice with fresh vegetables to create a dynamite, lower caloric casserole or stir fry.

Add a serving size of your favorite dressing or sauce to your portion and you'll be in Dieter's Heaven. Better yet - wrap the concoction into your favorite tortilla or wrap.

Quick Spanish Rice Recipe

For a quick Mexican rice recipe, add a serving of light, reduced fat margarine to a non-stick skillet. The margarine should contain no more than 40 calories. Next, warm 1 cup of the steamed rice in your microwave - unless it is coming straight from another heat source, such as the steamer.

While the rice is warming, add about 1/3 cup of chopped onions and assorted colors of bell pepper to the melted margarine in the skillet. Cook to bring out the flavors of the vegetables as this will assist in seasoning the rice. The heat sweats out the pungent, flavorful oils of the food - thus adding flavor as well as texture to the recipe.

Add the warm rice to the vegetables; also add ground chili powder and a 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin. You can also add a spoon or two of your favorite salsa as well as fresh or dried cilantro.

The amount of ground chili powder that is used will depend upon how spicy you want like your rice.
