This isn’t going to be an original recipe from me… but this is going to give you a few quick ideas.
I’m in a spring “diet and exercise” accountability group and we are all trying to get ourselves “summer and swim-suit” ready like everyone else! One of the things I’ve found is that I need something “quick” sometimes. That can be hard when you are trying to eat CLEAN and FRESH and LOW to NO carb. So… I’ve searched and found a few great recipes that should be pretty quick to whip together.
From Rachael Ray there is some BBQ chicken wraps:
Barbecued Chinese Chicken Lettuce Wraps
Another GREAT option would be to use Quinoa! It has so many great things in it, and I love to use quinoa to boost my protein without necessarily having to add meat to a dish. You can boost this dish with all sorts of veggies too! Giada has a great recipe here:
Another quick and easy idea? FRIED RICE! My kids LOVE fried rice. I do have to skip the eggs for my sweet little boy… but we can have it as a main dish if I’m feeling like taking it easy, or as a side dish with anything from chicken nuggets, to shredded pork, to wings!
(I consider rice a good carb… just not in excess… it’s pretty close to it’s natural from in comparison to other carbs)
Grill out! Take your burgers, hot dogs, steaks, potatoes, veggie kabobs, etc… and GRILL! You can wrap your meat in some lettuce, or put it on top of an amazing salad! If you have a gas grill, it’d only take about 15 minutes to grill something! Before you leave for work, pop your meat and veggies in a ziploc with some marinade and then quick toss it on the grill for dinner when you get home! Seriously… 15 minutes later you’ve got dinner!
Need a quick marinade that’d work for meat or veggies?
(personally I’d use coconut or soy aminos that taste JUST LIKE soy sauce… but you use what tastes good to you!)
Ok… so that’s it for now, good luck cooking!
And now, for the song of the day:
