Skinny Salad Wraps for a Healthier #SundaySupper

I don’t know how you feel this time of year, but I’m feeling a little ‘fluffy’.  I’ve been running my booty off (yet, the booty in question remains) and have signed myself up for at least one race a month through the summer to keep me motivated to train.  Coming up this Saturday, I’ll be running in the Charlotte 10 Miler.

While exercise is definitely a must, so is taking a look at what we’re eating.  This week for #SundaySupper, we’re doing just that.  Our contributors have slaved over calorie counts, ingredient lists and their favorite recipes to bring you a ‘scaled-back’ selection of delicious lighter for you recipes.  My booty is thankful.  While I very much enjoy all of the festive holiday eating, I don’t always enjoy working to undo the damage.  Perhaps these recipes will make it a little easier.

For us, we’re always pressed for time, so I need things that are quick and incorporate filling, nutritious foods.  Salads are always yummy, but sometimes staring at a plate of lettuce gets a little boring, so I decided to wrap up some of our favorites.

A very, very blurry salad wrap...

A very, very blurry salad wrap…

The key to a healthy salad is using small amounts of flavor packed toppings.  This is especially true for your cheese and dressing.  If you aren’t careful, you can turn a seemingly healthy meal in to a dietary train wreck.  These wraps hold true to those principles, incorporating blue cheese, dried cherries and a balsamic vinaigrette – all in very limited quantities.  There’s no lack of flavor though!  The grilled chicken adds a great source of protein, and while you can use store bought grilled chicken strips, it’s really simple to make your own!

    “Fluffy” – I’m giggling at that description. Kudos to you with running and staying fit with exercise. The wrap has so much of what I like with the blue cheese, dried cherries, nuts, and the dressing. Great recipe.

  36. Lol, if only it were my booty that was the problem. Mine is my ginormous Santa Claus belly that keeps expanding. I wish I had the discipline to train for a 10K. Good for you! And this salad wrap looks amazing. Such fantastic flavours! I used to hate chicken breast but I’ve grown a new appreciation for it in the past year. I love cooking with it now – what a great source of lean protein.

  37. Dipti Joshi says:

    Very healthy and nutritious meal idea.

  38. Megan says:

    I love making sandwich wraps with random items in my kitchen! This totally looks like something I would make!

  39. Yes I have to confess I am guilty for over loading my wraps quietly behind the camera. You are right that’s a unnecessary load and small flavor packs are the best solution. I d love one of your wraps now!

  40. Sarah says:

    This is great! Without the almonds I can even make it for the school kids

  41. Great looking recipe…love the interplay between the bleu cheese and dried cherries for added flavor without a bunch more calories! Thanks for sharing!

  42. MommaLaura says:

    This time of year I too am feeling rather fluffy. I keep trying to get back into running but life gets so crazy that I struggle taking the me time to do it. I am trying to take inspiration from you and just get out there and do it

  43. Wraps are such an awesome idea…and with these flavours, I’m sure this wrap doesn’t fail to deliver!

  44. Sarah says:

    I love adding cranberries to my chicken salad too! love the little bit of tanginess it adds! Love the salad wrap and everything in it!

  45. Wraps are a great way to go skinny! Terrific idea. And I love the addition of the dried cherries. I throw them into all kinds of salad and this is another great way to use them.
