Eating healthy doesn’t need to take a long time. If I can make it work living in a hotel for 2 months, you can do it for lunch during the week!
Here is a simple idea for a wrap you can pack the night before:
What you’ll need:
A Whole Wheat Tortilla
Canned Salmon (Better yet if it’s fresh!)
Low Fat String Cheese
Hummus (I like Trader Joe’s Spicy Hummus!)
The recipe is simple. Spread hummus on the wrap. Cut a couple long slices of cucumber and pepper. Lay them down. Open your can of Salmon. An average can has enough for two wraps. Then string your cheese. Lay it on top and your are good to go!
All together this has 480 Cals, 32g Protein, 28g Carbs, 23g Fat, and 7g of Fiber. If you are looking to cut calories buy a Sonoma low Carb Tortilla (they sell similar ones at many stores, but they definitely have them at Trader Joe’s!). That will drop the calories and carbs to 400 Calories and 19 Carbs. The Low Carb Tortilla will also up your protein to 34g. Remember though, Carbs aren’t always bad. I’m at Bikram yoga training, doing 2 yoga classes a day. It is important to fuel your body. Even with the normal whole wheat tortilla, I’m still within my ratios!
Make sure you give yourself good fuel for lunch to carry you through your day!
Come spring every year my religious customs have me fasting from meat in Friday. (I have also given up alcohol as part of my Lenten sacrifice. ) I still need to get my protein though to recover from my strength workout with my visiting friend Deb and yoga class and fuel me to run tomorrow with my runners!
