I used to get so tired in the afternoons. Sometimes having a really hard time keeping my eyes open. Like I had to put my head down on my desk for a few minutes. Thankfully, I work from home! Of course, now I realize that it was my lunches. Mostly carb heavy lunches.
These days, my lunches are healthy and filled with protein. I have so much more energy!
I wanted to share some ideas with you. I'm not one for prepping and eating the same thing day in and day out. I need, no, crave, variety.
Spinach and Black Bean Quesadilla
Quick and easy to grill up. See Recipe
Grilled Turkey Melt (or Ham)
Sometimes I miss deli meats! So I was determined to find deli turkey and ham that was only 1 pt for 2 oz. See Recipe
Buffalo Chicken Nuggets
I can't tell you how much I love these spicy nuggets! I like to serve them with some Dijon mustard. Delicious! See Recipe
These are a great little side to have in the fridge to go along side whatever you are having for lunch. See Recipe
Pepperoni Pita Pizza
A Joseph's Pita and your imagination. That's all you really need for these pizza's. See Recipe
Buffalo Chicken Burgers
ZERO point burgers? Say it isn't so? Yep! Put it on a low point roll or on a salad or just eat it by itself. So delicious! See Recipe
Southwest Turkey Burgers
I was looking for something just a bit different. Adding in the mushrooms and tortilla chips was genius. See Recipe
Just simple. Pure protein. I like to have these as a snack, lunch, dinner. Whatever I'm in the mood for. Taco seasoning gives them great flavor! See Recipe
I wanted something cool and crunchy as a side dish this week. This will be an awesome salad during the summer months. See Recipe
I hope some of these recipes inspires you to try out new things this week!
