    Liven up your meals with fruits and vegetables! Fruits and veggies should make up half our plate at meals. They’re high in fiber and nutrients while low in calories. Add more to your meals with these great recipes:

    Recipe suggestion I got from Liz, great alternative to “just a sandwich”

    Mixed Bean Wrap:
    Drain, rinse and mix 1 can garbanzo beans, black beans, and kidney beans. Store in recloseable conainer.

    1/2 cup of bean mixture
    1 tablespoon salsa
    1 tablespoon low-fat sour cream (or greek yogurt)
    1 tortilla (or 1/2 pita bread)
    (2 carbs and 1/2 fat)

    To make this a meal, I add 1oz cheese on the side, 1 cup raw veggies (peppers/cucumbers/etc)
    1 fruit serving

    I was very surprised to find that I really enjoyed this. I have never eaten beans except “cooked” in something (i.e. chili) and this makes a very filling meal I almost can’t eat it all! Please feel free to make changes to suit your taste and comment on this link to let me know what you think. I am always looking for new recipes/ideas. Thanks!

      I love this too–it’s kind of surprising how yummy it is! I love your idea about using a pita in place of the tortilla. I will definitely try it.
