Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Healthy Grilled Chicken Lunch Tortillas

I'm trying to be healthy, and right now I'm in love with grilled anything, along with pico de gallo.  I'll put pico on just about anything at the moment.  I searched the grocery store for something I could make at home that would be fast AND healthy and not straight out of a frozen box.  Found it and it's only 330 calories!!!

3 oz. Tyson Grilled & Ready Frozen Chicken Strips
2 (7 inch) La Tortilla Low Carb/High Fiber tortillas
2 Tbsp. pico de gallo
2 crispy leaves of lettuce
1/4 cup Fat-Free 4 Mexican shredded cheese (Sargento)
2 Tbsp. Fat-Free Honey Dijon salad dressing (Maple Grove Farms)

Measure out 3 oz. of chicken and cook it in the microwave according to the directions (~3 min.).  Divide the chicken strips between two tortillas.  Top the hot chicken strips with cheese (1/4 divided between the two tortillas).  Then add the lettuce, pico (1 Tbsp. for each tortilla), and dressing (1 Tbsp. for each tortilla).  

And....you're done!  Just fold them up and eat them like a soft taco. 

These take less than five minutes to put together, they're only 330 calories for BOTH of them, and they're super filling and healthy!  Perfect for those of us on the go and who don't have a whole lot of time for lunch but still want to be healthy.
