STAYING HEALTHY

Although the months are cold, dreary and dark, I do my best to find ways to positively embrace this time of year. The holidays are wonderful, as they are times spent with loved ones, and with indulging in all sorts of sinful deliciousness. 

But once January rolls around, it’s time to start life anew with New Years Resolutions, fitness goals and find your footing again with healthy meal options. 

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not easy and I still find reasons to talk my husband into getting pizza here and there. Which is never difficult! Ha! 😀 So to keep us both on track and choosing healthier meal options, we are big on prepping our meals and snacks for the week. Or even for a few days at a time.

HOW TO MAKE HEALTHIER CHOICES

  1. Start with how you shop at the store. A great rule to follow is to shop the perimeter of the store. Stick to the outside aisles. This is where you will find produce, dairy, meats, and healthy beverage options. The middle aisles are the ones that are best to avoid as they contain those delicious bags of chips, crackers, and cookies.
  2. Prep your meals and sides ahead of time. Even if you’re not into meal prepping every single meal for the entire week, it helps to have your produce washed, chopped, and ready to go when you need to quickly put something together. Pre-cook chicken for grab-n-go, chop up and prep a large salad to pull from, or pre-steam your vegetables for another healthy option to add to your lunch of dinner.
  3. Be active! Make exercise or trips to the gym a top priority. Even if it’s walking on the treadmill at an incline. Any form of exercise is better for you than no exercise. Don’t be intimidated by those “going hard” at the gym. Do your own thing without a care. Everyone is there for their own agendas, so be there for your own. Get moving – no matter what you prefer or are comfortable with!
  4. Unplug from life at least once a week. Stop checking social media or doing endless hours of surfing the internet. Allow yourself to completely unplug from the outside world at least once a week and dedicate that time to being active, meal prepping, or spending time with loved ones.

TURKEY PINWHEEL MEAL PREP – done 2 ways!

These turkey pinwheels are a favorite in this household with my husband and me. They come together easily, are served cold (so no cooking!), and they are great for on-the-go. If you’re not a fan of spinach tortilla wraps, then swap them out with any 10 or 11-inch tortilla wrap of your choosing. OR go for the low-carb option and wrap them in sliced zucchini or cucumbers!

Did I mention they are kid-friendly? Yep. Easy, packable finger food for the little ones to enjoy for their school lunches.

OR you can enjoy it with a side of sweetness with this Turkey Pinwheel Meal Prep option. Dunk your side of veggies in extra hummus (any flavor – I love mediterranean style) and tackle your sweet tooth with a side of your favorite fruit. Like the strawberries and blueberries you see pictured.

HOW TO MAKE TURKEY PINWHEEL MEAL PREP

Full recipe can be found below in the printable recipe card! 🙂

It’s all in how you layer your wrap prior to rolling it. 

  1. Lay one tortilla flat on a large cutting board and spread a thick layer of cream cheese (or hummus) all around the tortilla, from edge to edge.
  2. Layer spinach and remaining ingredients (sliced turkey breast, roasted red peppers and/or cheese) towards the lower two-thirds of the wrap. 
  3. Starting at the lower end of the tortilla, roll tightly from the filled end to the empty end. The ingredients will shift as you are rolling and that is ok! Continue rolling until the filling is tightly wrapped and it is holding together firmly.
  4. Make and wrap any remaining tortillas. Wrap each tortilla roll in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. This will help to keep it tightly packed.
  5. Chill in the fridge for approximately 30-60 minutes (or until ready to eat or prep!) so that the ingredients get some time to mingle and soften slightly. This will help with the cutting process.
  6. Slice into 8 equal slices and add to your meal prep containers with the remaining ingredients and sides.
