Quick post today. Over the weekend I was reading Good Housekeeping, one of my guilty pleasures, and on the cover was one of my favorite “celebrity” doctors, Dr. Oz. In the issue he spoke about the importance of proteins and how so many people on diets are more concerned with what not to eat rather than what TO eat. There were tons of fabulous protein packed meals, and easy recipes like chicken meatballs and glazed salmon steaks. Last night I made the lentil salad, and paired it with one of Dr. Oz’s 75 calorie wraps. Super easy and super yummy. I may never eat another whole wheat wrap again!
Lettuce wrapped turkey:
1 big piece of lettuce
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
3 slices fresh turkey
No need to write the directions!
Rinse and drain 2 cups of green lentils. Add to 5 cups of hot water, and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain and set aside. Made a bed of chopped lettuce, add 1/2 cup cooked lentils to the center, and surround with diced cucumber, tomatoes, and red onion. Drizzle with your favorite light dressing.
Have a great MONDAY everyone!
