Healthy Holiday Eats

December 19, 2012

With the holidays in full swing I’ve been trying to eat healthy when I’m not at events (I’m so glad no one can see the half eaten peppermint brownies on my desk as I type away…).  That being said I’ve been starting my day off with half a Meyer lemon (from my tree!) squeezed into hot water.  It’s supposed to jump start your metabolism and is surprisingly tasty. 

I like to eat throughout the day so I’ve been making Greek Yogurt parfaits with homemade granola and blueberries (can’t forget the drizzle of honey!).  A great lunch idea is something my sister got me turning onto… Trader Joe’s sells low carb tortillas and I put a little hummus, mixed greens, and roasted chicken or turkey breast, a couple veggies (cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.) and you’re good to go!

For dinner at home this week I was pleasantly surprised with some of this low-cal finds.  Check them out!

Balsamic Chicken with Roasted Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Asparagus

Pork Chops with a Mustard Maple Sauce : I served with Couscous and green beans…  it’s a tad on the vinegary side but if you’re into that (like me!) it’s a hit… and at 254 calories a serving… you’ll get over it! 🙂
