I was standing in line at Meijer yesterday and could not help but notice all of the magazines in the checkout aisle. I hardly ever take the time to read them but the JanuaryFebruary issue of Cooking Light caught my eye.
This issue contains recipes for simple quick breakfasts, all-day snack solutions, jazzed-up microwave lunches, and fast and healthy entrees! Who wouldn't want recipes and ideas for all of those meals?
Last night's dinner inspiration came from one of the "Jazzed-Up Microwave Lunches" recipes.
While I was at Meijer I stocked up on all of the necessities - avocados, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes, mushrooms, hummus, the list goes on and on.
I already had turkey burgers in the fridge so I changed up their Gardenburger Black Bean Chipotle Burger recipe a little bit to fit what I had on hand.
My burger consisted of: 1 turkey burger, spinach, cucumbers, avocado, and hummus all stuffed into 1/2 a pita pocket. I also had cherry tomatoes and mushrooms on the side and then a little bit later snacked on a handful of nuts.
Let me tell you - this was absolutely delicious. I loved how the cucumbers added a crunch to the sandwich and the avocado was super creamy!
A perfect meal in my book.
If you hadn't noticed, I added a "Recipe" tab to the blog. Just click on it and you can find a list of all the recipes I have had on the blog. I haven't posted many recipes yet but am working on cooking/baking more and sharing them with you all!
