My friend Nina was telling me the other day that it’s hard to eat healthy when another friend always suggests to order food out for lunch. It got me to thinking that I haven’t put any lunch ideas up on the blog yet. Now is the moment. I have two ideas for you today. The first idea is a “Go Green Turkey Wrap.” No, the turkey is not old and green. The turkey wrap is a green idea because you’ll save energy by cooking extra vegetables when you make your dinner, and then you’ll use the leftover vegetables in a sandwich wrap the following day. You’ll also save money and gas by taking your lunch to work, and by doing so, you’ll help your pocketbook and the environment.
The second idea is that you could create a pool with your coworkers, and each day a different person will make lunch for everyone else in the pool. That is, if you trust the hygiene of everyone in the pool. It could be something fun to do and each person could do their best to make interesting healthy lunches. Let me know if you try the lunch pool!
Ingredients: (For 1 person)
Whole-wheat flatbread (I use flatbread from Flatoutbread.com)
2 slices turkey
½ to ¾ cup vegetables (i.e. Green beans, asparagus, zucchini, grilled onions, roasted bell peppers etc.)
Lettuce – 2 to 3 leaves, washed
Olive oil – 1 to 1 ½ teaspoons
Oregano – 1/4 teaspoon
Lay the flat bread on the counter. Place two slices of turkey on the flatbread and top with the vegetables and the lettuce. Sprinkle with oregano and then drizzle the olive oil over the vegetables. Roll the flatbread up like you would roll up a carpet.
Have a great lunch!
