Part 1:

In a large plastic zip bag, combine olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, oregano, greek yogurts and salt and pepper. Massage to mix.
Add chicken into the bag.
Massage to make sure chicken is full covered and marinate for at least 20 minutes, up to 12 hours.
Drain the chicken from the marinade, discarding the marinade.
In a skillet, heat some olive oil over medium-high heat.
Add chicken when it is hot, and cook, flipping part way through. Cook approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Cooking time depends on thickness and size of the chicken. Cook until internal temp is 165 degrees.
Remove from pan, and let cool.
Once cool, cut into bite sized pieces. Just make sure you let it cool, or all the juice will run out.
Meanwhile, make cucumber salad by chunking the cucumbers, and tossing in a bowl with the lemon juice, olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, and oregano. Set aside
Make tzatziki sauce by combining the Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, dill weed, lemon juice, lemon zest in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper. And add mint (optional)

Grilled Zucchini Hummus Wrap

Grilled Zucchini Hummus Wrap

Grilled Zucchini Hummus Wrap

Fresh veggies are grilled to perfection and packed in this Grilled Zucchini Hummus Wrap! One of my favorite things about this is how versatile it is. You can change up the veggies based on your personal preferences. Don’t have kale? No big deal, just throw in some spinach! Just use whatever fresh summer produce you have on hand! Just be sure not to skimp on the hummus. It is what makes the whole wrap come together so nicely. I used Sabaras Roasted Red Pepper Hummus, but you can make your own or use whatever flavor you like most.

INGREDIENTS:

1 zucchini, ends removed and sliced
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tomato, sliced or handful of cherry tomatoes
1/8 cup sliced red onion
1 cup kale, tough stems removed
2 slices white cheddar or chipotle gouda cheese
2 large Udi’s gluten free tortillas
4 tablespoons hummus

INSTRUCTIONS:

Heat a skillet or grill to medium heat.
Remove the ends from the zucchini and slice length wise into strips. Toss sliced zucchini in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place sliced zucchini directly on grill and let cook for 3 minutes, turn and cook for 2 more minutes.
Set zucchini aside.
Place the tortillas on grill for approximately one minute, or just until grill marks are visible and tortillas are pliable.
Remove tortillas from grill and assemble wraps, 2 tablespoons of hummus, one slice of cheese, zucchini slices, 1/2 cup kale, onion and tomato slices.
Wrap tightly and enjoy immediately.

Cheeseburger Lettuce Wraps

Cheeseburger Lettuce Wraps

Cheeseburger Lettuce Wraps

Cheeseburgers are so yummy! And, once you take out some of the bad stuff that fast food joints add – you actually get a pretty well rounded meal! Here is my healthy take on In n’ Outs Cheeseburger Protein Style!

INGREDIENTS

Patty
2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
6 slices American cheese
2 large heads iceberg or romaine lettuce, rinsed then dried
2 tomatoes, sliced thin
small red onion, sliced thin
SPREAD
1/4 cup light mayo
3 Tablespoons ketchup
1 Tablespoon dill pickle relish
dash of salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Heat a grill or skillet on medium heat.
2. In a large bowl, mix together ground beef, seasoned salt, pepper and oregano.
3. Divide mixture into 6 sections then roll each into a ball. Press each ball down flat to form a patty.
4. Place patties on grill/pan and cook for approximately 4 minutes on each side or until cooked to your liking. (If using a skillet, only cook 3 at a time to avoid over-crowding.)
5. Place a slice of cheese on each cooked burger. Place each burger on a large piece of lettuce. Top with spread (see recipe below), one slice tomato, red onion and whatever else you like. Wrap the lettuce up over the top and serve. Enjoy!

Spread: In a small bowl mix together all the spread ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use.
