What’s for Dinner: Lettuce Tacos

I love tacos but the calories from the tortillas add up fast. Solution, use lettuce for your wraps!

Lettuce Tacos

Take your favorite taco toppings, put in lettuce and enjoy! It doesn’t get much easier than that.

In mine I had tzatziki, ground beef, tomatoes, onions, red pepper, avocado, cheese and hot sauce.

Another great dinner, under 600 calories and super quick and easy to make.

What’s for Breakfast: Blueberry Yogurt Overnight Oats

This is such a quick, easy, delicious and healthy breakfast. I have discovered that I enjoy oatmeal more cold than I do hot so this is perfect for me. The toppings and things you can add are endless giving you an easy breakfast that can be different every day of the week.

Blueberry Yogurt Overnight Oats

This morning I added:
1/3 cup oatmeal
2/3 cup water
1/4 cup honey greek yogurt
1/2 tbsp ground flaxseed
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1/3 cup blueberries

Mix it together and let it sit overnight in the fridge. I use quick oats for mine so I often only let it sit for an hour or two before eating it.

Total calories: 305 calories

It really is perfect for a quick breakfast. I usually rotate between this and eggs; often hard boiled eggs because they are easy to pack and eat once I get to work.

What’s For Dinner: Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

I loved everything about these. Super super easy, delicious, full of flavour and low in calories. These cooked up super fast and dinner was on the table in about 30 minutes. My husband even ate them and he dislikes tomatoes.

I used chicken breasts sliced in half to make them nice and thin, this is easier to do if you cut your meat still partially frozen. My husband commented on what an awesome job I did slicing the chicken. I felt very proud.

Grilled Chicken Bruschetta

I served mine with some homemade bread, cottage cheese and sliced cucumbers. The bread was perfect for dipping in the extra bruschetta sauce but not really calorie friendly. I will be making these again very very soon but next time I will be skipping the bread. Dinner was about 700 calories with the bread, without the bread it is very calorie friendly.
