If you’re like me, and you like to serve sandwiches for dinner, you’ll love these Dijon Peppercorn Wraps. I developed this recipe for Laura’s Lean Beef and with 223 calories, 7.3 grams of fat and 19 grams of protein, you can feel great eating these for dinner. Feel free to substitute chicken, but steak is great with the homemade Dijon sauce. This recipe is perfect if you have a hectic afternoon schedule (that’s me everyday with 3 kids).
I had a wonderful, light, crispy salad last week while in Alys Beach Florida so I decided to try to replicate the recipe at my own house. Grilling fresh tuna is so easy, and the lemon marinade makes it so fresh and juicy. Serve the tuna on mixed greens with your favorite toppings. This version includes avocado, pink grapefruit, tomatoes and carrots. If you don’t have time to make your own dressing, use your favorite jarred version. Grilled Tuna Salad with Avocado and Grapefruit is a great way to taste summertime and the good things in life.
My friend, Kelli, recommended a version of this salad recipe to me that she said she served with fresh grilled fish. I decided to make it a main-dish salad so I added cooked grilled chicken and made a few alterations to make it my own (This recipe is adapted from Clean Eating magazine). You can also use a rotisserie chicken or shrimp if you’re short on time, or feel free to add olives, pepperocinis and even lettuce.
See me today, June 11th on NBC 13 Daytime Alabama at 11:30 a.m central time.
Kelly, one of my dear friends and running partners, has been talking a lot about eating “raw” foods lately. She’s one of the most intelligent and healthy people that I know, so when she talks, I try to always pay close attention. I have always been intrigued by raw food diets and juicing. I served up this platter of fresh raw carrots with a homemade Dijon Vinaigrette, and they sure went fast. It was a simple way to get some raw veggies in the kids’ diet, but also makes a great side dish or appetizer.
