I work full time…So not only do I try and make sure that my kiddos have healthy lunches, it’s important that I’m fueling up with nutritious weight loss recipes so I can get through the work day, as well! On most days I work during my lunch, so I’m always looking for easy meals to take with me to have on hand. I’m also lucky that I live close to the office where I work, and that I can run home and grab something, too. Yesterday, I literally had 15 minutes to grab something before rushing back to work. BUT…You’d never know that the AMAZING dish I created, took less than those 15 minutes! I had the following items in my fridge:
-Left over turkey
-One yellow squash
-A handful of red grapes
-A few chopped almonds
Introduce: “Noon Time Rush”
-Take the yellow squash and slice it up. Saute with olive oil, a small tab of butter, or with cooking spray. Salt and Pepper. Cook until lightly golden on the edges
-Chop up the turkey into bit-sized cubes.
Put the squash, turkey and grapes into a large dish. Mix together. Top with chopped almonds. Sprinkle with sea salt. DEVOUR at your desk!!
This would also be a great, QUICK dinner entree to have with a side salad, or sliced fruit.
What is a quick, healthy recipe you make when you need something on the spot, that’s in YOUR fridge?!
