Are you in a lunch rut?? Tired of eating out? Tired of the same boring lunch? It doesn’t have to be this way!!! I’m here to give you some easy, healthy lunch options that will keep you full, keep you going and won’t wreck your new year’s diet! Check them out!!
TURKEY ROLL UPS
First, I wanted to share with you a new recipe (if you can call it that). This is SO simple and basically features everything you want in a sandwich, just without the bread! We make these often and mix up the ingredients for variety. This is my son’s #1 request for his school lunch – yes, even more often than PB&J! Customize with whatever you like! Makes 1 adult serving
4 slices deli turkey
1 slice cheese, divided into 4 smaller slices
1 tomato, thinly sliced
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1 tsp mayo
1 tsp mustard
- Place turkey slices on a cutting board. Spread mayo and mustard over turkey. On one end of the turkey slices, place cheese, tomato slices and avocado slices. Roll turkey up and serve! You could secure rolls with a toothpick but it’s not necessary. These will keep in the fridge a couple days.
*Other options: use ham, beef, or even sliced deli chicken in place of the turkey. For vegetables, you can use bean or vegggie sprouts, lettuce, spinach or kale, pickles, etc. Basically, whatever you like in your sandwich, put in these rolls!
