This easy, healthy lunch recipe swaps out ingredients for healthier options. Eating healthy can be easy by simply changing out regular foods for healthier alternatives.
You know I love to hit all four food groups with one meal- so here’s another one! As always, it’s quick and easy and uses items you probably already have in your kitchen.
Here’s what you need:
One Thomas’ bagel thin (only 3 weight watchers points per bagel!)
Low fat cheese slice
Mayo ( I used reduce fat Kraft mayo with olive oil)
Toast the bagel and layer deli turkey, one low-fat cheese slice, a few spinach leaves, then finish with a light layer of reduced fat mayo. Done! You can add other vegetables- tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, kale, etc. to get some extra vitamins and greens in your diet. I’m low on veggies at the moment so I had to stick with spinach. I’m not a weight watchers expert, but if you are using the plan, I think this is pretty low in points too. (I’m estimating 7 points if you use 2oz of turkey and about half an ounce of mayo).
When you’re a busy Mom, quick and easy meals are a must. You can still make healthy choices even when your in a hurry. Swapping out food items for healthier choices (such as low-fat cheese, healthier breads and meats, etc.) can make a big difference in your health (and your waistline)!
