It has been a while since my last post – but we are still planning our meals and cooking healthy. I have had to resort to preparing and freezing some meals so that we are not eating out but when I have the time I still prefer to prepare fresh meals using fresh ingredients as they are available.
This lunch was simple, fast and loaded with goodness.
Prep Time: 10 minutes ~ Serves: 2
- 1/2 cup guacamole
- 1 cup chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
- 1/4 cup green onion
- 1/4 cup red pepper (optional)
- 1 celery rib
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1/4 cup celery leaves
- wraps/naan bread
Mix all ingredients together and spread onto a wrap or naan bread. That easy! It is also a great source of brain food Omega 3’s with 3mg EPA and 4mg DHA of a recommended 2.5mg per day! Hitting it outta the park. Adding red pepper (as the daughter suggests) ups the vitamin C in this recipe by 41% with just a 1/4 cup. Smart Girl!
Darling Daughter’s Notes: I really liked this with the Naan bread. I was thinking that there could be a little less lemon juice and maybe you could add some red pepper to the mix.
