I am loving wraps lately to use up leftovers. You can add whatever you like to them, and they’re usually fairly healthy – especially if you get whole wheat tortillas.
So after I made grilled Chuck steak the other night, I made wraps for lunch with the leftovers.
I sliced the steak, reheated it gently by sauteeing in a pan, then layered it on a tortilla with cheddar, chimichurri, avocado, and tomato. If you have enough steak left, this would work as dinner the next night too.
Or, you can make a salad. Prepare the steak the same way, then toss it lightly in the chimichurri. Place over your green of choice, adding whatever toppings you like. I put romaine lettuce first, then cheddar and tomato, the steak, and avocado. It’s great with this homemade dressing.
My lovely sister had the idea of making burrito bowls too – rice and beans topped with these same ingredients.
If you used lean beef, you can feel good about making a healthy choice for lunch. It doesn’t take much time at all, and as a mom, it sure feels more grown-up to eat one of these options than it does to eat a PBJ or grilled cheese (not that I have anything against those classics).
Now enjoy a very simple but elegant feeling second meal!
