Let me just tell you that this is one of my all time favorite lunch meat sandwiches to take to work on a regular basis--it's high in protein, healthy fats, and most importantly leaves you feeling full and satisfied when served with a small side!
What you need:
- 2 slices Sara Lee 45 calorie Healthy Multi-grain bread (90 calories)
- 3-4 slices (aka like 4 oz) of your local deli's buffalo chicken (approx. 100 calories)
- 1 slice of Sargento's Thin Sliced Colby Jack Cheese (40 calories)
- 1 tablespoon Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil (45 calories)
- 1-2 pieces of lettuce to add a little crunch (optional - 5 calories)
CALORIE TOTAL: 275 Calories
PS: Sorry about the half-eaten sandwich photos...I wasn't lying when I said this is my all time favorite lunch meat sandwich.

This week's Rest Day Recipe was made and suggested by my good friend, Larisa. This side dish or snack, if you will, is not only super yummy, but it's also filled with lots of good stuff: Brussel sprouts have 3 grams of protein and a lot of vitamin C and carrots, well you know about them right?; carrots are filled with vitamin A.
Soooo, for this recipe all you have to do is mix together some salt, pepper, garlic, dried mustard and olive oil. Once you do that, season the brussel sprouts and carrots with your delicious new concoction and roast it in the oven at 350F for 20 minutes or until tender!
And if you're trying to make this for dinner, they go really well with chicken and brown rice! Enjoy!

I don't know about most of you, but I often find it really difficult to eat healthy when life gets crazy busy. I like to make things ahead of time to take on the go that are simple, healthy, low in calories AND DELICIOUS. These mini breakfast wraps are are definitely one of my favorite pre-prepared meals--clocking in at only 260 calories. I usually will eat one or two fresh then freeze the rest of them for those mornings I'm running a little bit late :P Ingredients:
- Eggs (and milk for fluffy eggs)
You can also watch me struggle to film myself making them on my Day 17 video. lol :P
