I was first introduced to the Protein Box at Starbucks. Starbucks is truly a treat for me because the nearest location is about 30 miles from where I live. When I get the chance, I’ll run through the drive-thru and grab myself a Skinny Caramel Latte! I decided to recreate my own similar Protein Box. You will notice my version has more calories and a whole lot more protein. This has become one of my favorite lunches on weekdays at work. I love the variety of foods and it keeps me satisfied all afternoon and it’s super healthy!
Lunch today was delicious. I had a Mission 100% Whole Wheat Tortilla, 2 oz. Sara Lee Lower Sodium Turkey Breast, 1 Lettuce Leaf, 1 Tomato Slice diced, 1 tbs. Hellmans Light Olive Oil Mayo, 3 oz. (about 1/2 cup) sliced Cucumber, 3 oz. (about 1/2 cup) Baby Carrots and 1 tbs. Green Goddess Dressing for dipping. 339 calories calculated at Livestrong.
My delicious lunch today was a chicken club sandwich with lettuce and tomato, 1/2 cup black grapes and 3 oz. baby carrots with 1 tbs. green goddess dressing for dipping. Who said eating healthy was boring and bland? The nutrition facts I recorded at Livestrong are below.
This meal is heavier on the sodium than I would like it to be, but I’m not going to worry about it. I’ll just make sure to eat less sodium for dinner to make sure I stay within my daily allowance.
