Everyone I talk to is busy – rushing to school, work, practices, meetings… My kids are often hungry, but feel that sitting down to a “real meal” is time consuming. I’ve narrowed down the problem to silverware. It looks like our members are in the same boat, take a look at what I found this week. Were tortillas on sale?
For breakfast, Emily is whipping up Breakfast Rollups and Turkey Sausages. My kids are pretty fond of these wraps – the peanut butter holds the banana in place. JoAnne C. is making Scrambled Eggs to Go, with Plain Non Fat Yogurt; adding your own fruit, or even low sugar jam/preserves is a good way to add flavor to plain yogurt while keeping the sugar low (there’s a lot of sugar in some yogurts!). Deana is making Strawberry Ricotta Breakfast Wrap, with an Orange. If you aren’t a fan of ricotta, cream cheese works just as well.
The fun doesn’t stop there, for lunch Emily is twirling up Roast Beef Wraps with Carrot and Celery Sticks – Packaged, Kimberly is rolling up Hummus Veggie Wraps and an Orange Waldorf Salad, Kathryn has it covered with Turkey and Swiss Lettuce Wraps and Carrot and Celery Sticks – Packaged (I’ve never actually bought the packages, but if it’s faster, go for it!) Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt, and Tortilla Chips.
And finally, wrapping up the day (sorry), Kristina plans Avocado Chicken Tacos which would pair nicely with a salad or a fruit salad, and Kathryn uses the tortilla in Seven Layer Tortilla Pie with Crispy Sweet Potato Wedges.
Tortillas freeze beautifully, so if you catch a sale, or have to buy a large quantity at a warehouse club, no worries about using them right away.
Have a great week – we’ll see you around…
