Tuesday Twists

It's National Nutrition Month! Let's run with that...

Cinnamon Harvest (Kashi) cereal with *half of a banana and skim milk.

A turkey sandwich gone not-so-boring. Roasted turkey (you can't really see, but there are 4 slices there), romaine lettuce, yellow bell peppers and slices of ripe, red tomato with mustard on whole wheat bread. I rounded out the meal with a handful of snow peas. Crunchaliscious!

Afternoon Snack:
Crackers (Special K multigrain), reduced fat white cheddar cheese, grape tomatoes

Leftover turkey meatloaf, 1/2 a baked sweet potato, steamed broccoli. When it comes to the sweet potato, I eat the skin, too. It adds a nice texture, it's good for you, and helps fill you up! I'm not really a butter person, so give them just a sprinkle of kosher salt and a quick spray of olive oil. A little yogurt spread is good, too.

Plain Greek yogurt lightly drizzled with agave nectar, strawberries, and sprinkled with spice cake crumbs (some of my spice cupcakes didn't come out in one piece, so I had to get creative)

*Tip- if you make smoothies, you can freeze the other half of a banana for a smoothie later. Bananas aren't too great looking in frozen form, but taste perfectly fine. Blended with other fruit, it's great. Besides, the more of the fruit that's frozen, the less you need to water it down with ice.
