Tasty Tuesday

Every Tuesday this month expect tips for healthy back-to-school lunches, snacks and quick meals.

The healthiest back-to-school lunch wrap ever: Use a low carb wrap and fill it with chopped vegetables, ¼ cup of quinoa, shredded turkey (or shredded soy meat, cubed baked tofu, beans, or hard-boiled egg), and a thin layer of hummus. Roll it tightly. You can make this ahead of time and refrigerate.

Healthiest back-to-school snacks ideas include: 100 calorie pack of nuts, fruit and nut butter, unsweetened Greek yogurt with berries or grapes, veggies and salsa or bean dip, homemade trail mix (high fiber cereal/dried fruit/seeds), baked whole grain crackers and a wedge of low fat cheese. Remember that a frozen water bottle can keep perishable chilled.
