I’m not gonna lie. Today’s lunch is soooooo boring. I ran out of time last night to make a substantial and interesting healthy lunch for myself. Whoops! In typical Good to be the Cook fashion, I’m eating a plethora of seriously random but healthy things today:
1/2 Leftover Grilled Chicken Breast
2 Large Carrots, peeled, cut, and ready to dip into 1 Laughing Cow Wedge
1 Salad, complete with a whole bunch of lettuce, sliced carrot, sliced sweet pepper, 3 sliced Grape Tomatoes and 1 Tablespoon Dressing… that’s all I had left!
and… 2 Hard Boiled Egg Whites.
See what I mean? Like, how boring, and strange of me? Oh well! I save one Apple and a Greek Yogurt for later and I’ll be roarin’ and ready to go for my long workout evening.
Since today’s lunch is so not photo worthy, I wanted to tell you about a lunch I made last week…
If you didn’t see this ridiculous all-in-one dinner of Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Baked Potatoes, check it out now!
For this lunch, I used the leftover chicken I had while making this recipe. I love to make enough food the night before that I’ll be able to use it over again for lunch. It’s a great way to save money and time!
Grilled Chicken Wrap
1 Whole Wheat Wrap
4-6 ounces Grilled Chicken Breast, diced or pulled
1 Tablespoon Honey Mustard
1 handful Lettuce
2 Slices Cucumber, cut into smaller pieces
2 Cherry Tomatoes, cut in half
1/4 Avocado, Diced
Directions: Starting with the chicken, pile everything onto the middle of the wrap. Drizzle with the honey mustard. You can use more if you’d like… mustard is the best dressing you can use (in terms of healthy!) Fold the wrap first lengthwise, then from the bottom, and then the long side. I recommend starting the folding already on a sheet of foil, so you can use the foil to keep everything in place. (Burrito style) When you go to eat it, pull the foil back and keep it on the bottom so it doesn’t fall apart.
This was a great meal and an awesome change up from my normal Turkey Sandwich. I think that the avocado replaces the need for cheese… it’s creamy and tastes so good! I ate the wrap with a handful of baby carrots, a laughing cow cheese, and an apple. It was really filling! I wish I had this today too
