Low Fat Lunches

As a stay at home mom, I am literally home everyday. My kids don't go to MDO or KDO, and we aren't at preschool age yet, which means I'm serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner, everyday. I don't really struggle with breakfast or dinner options, but for some reason, lunch stumps me.

Now, I shouldn't admit this, but we do go to Chickfila quite often. I love their Southwest Salad and the kids love their grilled nuggets and fruit cups. And I really shouldn't admit that I'm on a first name basis with most of the lunch staff, including the manager. Nope. Not admitting it.

So, I'm hoping that you all will want to participate in this little link up idea I had. If you have a low fat lunch idea (since it seems like most of us are still in "It's January! I'm dieting!" mode) then I hope you'll link it up here. Have a picture? Even better!

So, here is my contribution. It's above, in the picture. I use a 70 calorie spinach tortilla, top it with 1T of chive spread, 2T of cheese, 4 slices of (thin!) ham and 4 slices of turkey. Total calories? 350. Not bad! And you could add a ton of veggies to this if you like - tomatoes, peppers, onions, lettuce...I'm just not a huge fan of veggies.

So, I hope that you will link up with me and share your Low Fat Lunch Ideas! And tell your friends - the more recipes, the better!
