Lunch Menu - It's a Wrap! A very large wrap!
For our lunch menu and our dinner menu we will be enjoying healthy wraps. You can use your favorite wrap sources such as flour tortilla shells. If you've never tried flax wraps, you just might fall in love all over again. Make sure your wraps for both lunch and dinner contain no more than 150 calories each.
We like to warm our wraps before filling. They can be warmed in the microwave OR prepared on the stove top using cooking spray which gives the wrap a crispy crunch and a beautiful golden brown color.
For our lunch menu we will use this delicious mix for our wrap: 2 cups of any variety of shredded lettuce, 1 small chopped tomato of any variety, 1/2 cup of chopped or sliced mushrooms of any variety, a few sliced black olives if desired, 1/2 cup of cooked chopped or cubed lean chicken, 50 calories worth of your favorite shredded cheese, 1 serving of full-blown sour cream (60 calories).
To prepare, line one side of the wrap with the lettuce. Top with the cooked chicken. Top with mushrooms and olives. Dollop on the sour cream and added the cheese. Roll to wrap. Enjoy water or your choice of beverage using optional calories if needed.
Mid-Afternoon Snack - Enjoy 100 calories worth of popcorn.
Dinner Menu - Philly Wrap
You know the drill from lunch. This time we're preparing a delicious Philly Wrap. Line one side of the wrap with 150 calories worth of prepared roast beef that has been warmed on the stove top with 1/2 cup of any variety of chopped onions + 1/2 cup of any variety of sweet bell peppers that have been finely chopped. Cook until the onions are clarified.
