|Hummus & Avocado Bacon Wrap with Broccoli Rabe for Lunch!|
Daily Tidbit: Cantaloupe is loaded with Vitamin A, a powerful antioxidant, and is great for your eyes. I typically eat mine plain, but here are some other ideas from Real Simple Magazine of ways to serve it:
Breakfast: Breakfast sandwich & Fruit
Whole Wheat English Muffin with 1 tbsp of Low Sodium, All Natural Peanut Butter &
½ Banana, sliced
1 cup of chopped Cantaloupe
Regular Coffee, black
|This is how my wrap looked before I wrapped it up! Finished product above.|
Lunch: Wrap with Veggies
“Small” Flour Wrap stuffed with Roasted Red Pepper Humus, Baby Spinach, 2 slices of Turkey Bacon, Red onion slices and ½ Avocado
Served with cold Broccoli Rabe (sautéed last night with EVOO, garlic, red pepper flake and salt for 20 minutes, covered)
Water with Lime
Regular Coffee, black
*I compared various sandwich/ bread options in the fridge and chose the wrap because it was 90 Calories with 16 grams of carbs and 3 grams of protein, though it was higher in sodium (270 mg!) than the whole grain bread option which had more calories and carbs.
Snack: ¼ cup dry roasted, lightly salted Peanuts, Fat Free Milk
Snack: 1 Plain Hard Boiled Egg, Fat Free Milk
Dinner: Girls night out: Indian Take out!
Way too many potato chips and sour cream dip (an old fav!) and some baby carrots too!
My friends and I shared four yummy Indian dishes:
-Vegetable Samosas - these are like large dumplings filled with Veggies and fried
-Molai Kofta - a Vegetarian Meatball dish in a creamy nut & herb sauce
-Baigan Bharta - a Vegetarian Eggplant dish with peas in a spicy tomato based sauce
-Chicken Makhani - Chicken cooked in a tomato based dish with cream and butter
-Garlic Naan – delicious Indian bread! I could not say no to this! Check out pic above!
*These dishes come with delicious and flavorful Basmati rice which I managed to avoid eating in an effort to keep my simple sugars and carbs to a minimum (particularly after eating all those potato chips and the garlic naan bread!)
For those not especially familiar with Indian cuisine, this website does a great job describing the dishes:
