When it comes to quick and easy meals, tuna wraps are ideal.
Grab a few pouches of quality tuna (don’t buy the cans, they’re a mess to drain), add chopped veggies, then wrap up the works in a whole grain tortilla. Simple, right?
It’s not that I’m skipping wheat wraps these days to save calories, or because I’m sensitive to gluten. I simply love the fresh crunch those green leaves give to every bite of whatever filling I decide to drop in the middle.
Do you remember the broccolette I bought at Costco a few weeks ago to serve with this chicken in a lemony thyme sauce?
We liked that broccoli so much, we decided to dish it up with meaty chunks of cod, and lacking the energy for a multiple pan meal determined a roast in the oven was the way to go.
This time of year when I’ve spent the weekend shopping, shmoozing with friends, and generally goofing off, I need Mondays to get back on track. That includes a few lighter meals to ward off any holiday pounds that might have crept on over the weekend.
I used to relegate this particular shellfish to special occasions. I thought it was too expensive to put in my cart, but that wasn’t true.
As my lovely sister-in-law and I were drooling over salad recipes this weekend, Vanessa made just that comment.
She said that many recipes required an amazing list of ingredients, most of which she would have to buy, and probably never use again.
What’s more, the instructions were endless. As a working mother of two young boys, she had no time, or energy, to tackle a cooking project.
While tilapia can’t compare to crab, it’s certainly less expensive, and did a good job as a stand-in for its more popular seafood cousin.
