Here's my go-to formula for lunches & dinners
Here are some fun pepper sandwiches that follow the formula, and are SUPER filling, healthy, and delicious 😉
1. Shrimp & Avocado Salad-Filled Bell Peppers
🥒 2 cups veggies: 2 medium cucumbers for the salad + 1 bell pepper
🥑 100-200 calories of fats: 1 avocado, chopped
🍤 4-5oz protein: about 20 medium shrimp, cooked from frozen in a pan with an oil spray
Season with fat free vinaigrette dressing and red pepper flakes! I love the Trader Joe’s fat free balsamic vinaigrette. Here’s a list of my fave TJs dressings.
2. Mozz & Tomato-Filled Peppers
