Here are some healthy lunch and snack recipes that will make meal prep easy during the hot Summer months!
Think of it as a salad except that it’s easier to eat and more fun.-:) You could add in some protein with shrimp, chicken or tofu to make it a more filling lunch.
rice paper–avocado–your favorite veggies
- Soak your rice paper in a large bowl of warm water for about 10 seconds (or follow directions on your package).
- Lay it on a moist clean towel and layer on your veggies & if you want. Sprinkle with rice vinegar or Asian dressing.
- Roll it up burrito style by rolling forward once, tucking in the sides and continuing to roll forward.
*Optional step: sauté your veggies in 1/2 Tbsp of sesame oil, 1/2 Tbsp soy sauce and 2 garlic cloves.
3 Tbsp soy sauce, 3 Tbsp nut butter, 2 tsp chopped garlic, 1/2 tsp sesame oil
Turkey and Veggie Roll Ups
Another easy grab and go snack or light lunch idea. These are surprisingly tasty eats!
organic deli meat
green beans & carrot slices
Roll up 1-2 steamed green beans, a carrot slice and a strip of mustard.
Chicken Salad Lettuce Wrap
1½ pounds pre-cooked chicken (I use a store bought rotisserie & remove the skin)
½ cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
¼ cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup red seedless grapes, cut in half lengthwise (20 grapes)
½ cup coarsely chopped unsalted, raw walnuts or pecans
1 cup thinly sliced celery (about 3 stalks)
Combine yogurt, mayo, vinegar, honey, salt, and black pepper in a large mixing bowl. Add chicken, grapes, and celery and toss until everything is coated in the yogurt sauce. Give it a quick taste and adjust salt and pepper if needed. Chill before serving.
