I’m a blonde wrapper! Artichoke and Sun-Dried tomato style :)

Wrap Collage

Wraps are a fabulous low-cal substitute for sandwiches!

A significant amount of calories are cut because a tortilla is substituted for two slices of bread. If you’re careful with the ingredients, you can cut 1/2 the calories out of a regular lunch.

So fast, so easy, and tastes good cold! This is a great lunch idea to bring with you to college or work 🙂

Breathtaking flower fruit spinach salad!

This delicious mouthful of healthy Fitspiration will absolutely take your breath away. I brought this baby to a party this weekend and all my friends LOVED it!

It’s easy, healthy and BEAUTIFUL (if I do say so myself… and I do!)

Did I mention it was cheap too? My fridge is almost always filled with fruit (since I make fruit smoothies every morning), so I used all the left-over fruits I had in there, and created this flowerful beauty!

My boyfriend brought in some lovely flowers from my front garden, so I threw those in for some extra color too.

I really love that this is such an impressive looking salad that took such little effort to throw together for a party. Keep it in mind for your next hang out!

P.s Oh my gosh you guys, aren’t my food-ography pictures getting so much better??!? I’ve been practicing with different lightning techniques with my camera and it’s been making SUCH a big difference.

Rustic Tomato Basil soup, 1/2 mozzarella tomato pesto sandwich- my Italian lunch in San Diego!

This incredible italian style lunch began with and INCREDIBLE tomato pesto I found at the farmers market last weekend.

A precious little old Italian man had his own booth set up, and I spent a good 20 mins talking to him about all the natural ingredients in his various flavors of pestos.

After trying 2 (more like 7) differeny flavors on his sample french bread slices, I fell passionately in love with his fresh tomato basil pesto. I couldn’t wait to get home to slap some of it on a sandwich!

Thus, the creation of this Italian style San Diego lunch 🙂

I loved it cold, with a bowl of my delicious tomato-basil soup. (See my tomato basil soup post for the recipe)

Perfect lunch to perk up a gloomy day!

5 Minute Vegetarian Panini! A Fitspirational Classic

2109 2108

In a hurry? Need some thing quick but still want to stay healthy?

This 5 minute vegetarian panini is GREAT because you can pre-prepare 3 different kinds at the beginning of the week, and after a few minutes on a panini maker; they’re ready to eat!

If you pre-prepare all the ingredients you want on your panini, and keep them individually ready-to-eat in your fridge- it makes for a quick and healthy meal on the go.

I made this panini last night in less then 5 minutes and it took me 2 minutes to heat it up today on my pink panini maker. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think sandwiches get any faster then that.

Gorgonzola garlic salad

You haven’t had a true salad until you’ve tasted this one. I know I know I know what you’re thinking; …garlic and pears??? EW!

WRONG! Think again. The savory flavors of the roasted garlic vinaigrette, go astonishingly well with the sweet Anjou pears.

This salad is quick, fresh and a delight side to any main course, or a perfect lunch all on its own 🙂

Ps oh my gosh you guys, these pictures turned out so great!! I’m getting so much better with my food photography!

A Mexican Fiesta (healthy nachos) FEAST for two! I have the best boyfriend ever.

Mexican yay

 

After a long day of work, I arrived home and my boyfriend had come over and made me this DELICIOUS and HEALTHY Mexican feast for two!

He home-made those whole wheat tortilla chips, and even made a fruit smoothie to go along with it. The quesadillas are made with whole wheat tortillas and stuffed with avocado and real cheddar cheese. Everyone knows I’m an avocado addict, so I almost passed out when I saw this sitting in the kitchen waiting for me.

Healthy nachos, I think yes!
