I am a huge fan of steak and love all kinds of cheeses — this meal is a delicious combination of both! I got the idea from a pre-made meal I saw at Trader Joe’s and figured I would try something like it. It’s easy and healthy and I hope you find it as appetizing as I did.

tomato spinach goat cheese steak wrap

Ingredients:

  • Thin slab of steak
  • cherry tomatoes
  • spinach
  • goat cheese (or any cheese that crumbles)

Directions:

  1. Cut your steak into about two inch strips.
  2. on each strip crumble/sprinkle the cheese, layering sliced tomatoes and spinach leaves on top.
  3. Roll it all together (somewhat like you would a cinnamon roll) and put a toothpick in it to keep it together.
  4. Place in a baking dish and broil for no more than 5 minus each side.

Note that it is somewhat messy to eat, so maybe don’t make this for the queen 😉 but it is absolutely to die for once you figure out how to eat it. Enjoy!


This meal is simple and yummy as well as very healthy!

You will need:

Salad-

  • 1 small lemon

    Lemon & Avocado Salad Ingredients

  • 1 small avocado
  • Cheese of choice (I used cheddar because I didn’t have any other cheese around, but I would suggest parmesan)
  • Lettuce or spinach (or both!)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Croutons

Dressing-

  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 3 tbs white or red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar
  • Lemon juice (from the lemon above)

Directions:

  1. Rinse lettuce/spinach and rip into a large bowl.
  2. Grate as much lemon zest as your lemon allows over the lettuce.
  3. Cut the avocado into wedges and separate into your bowl.
  4. Sprinkle grated or crumbled cheese into the bowl.
  5. Add croutons, salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Using a sealable jar, squeeze the lemon into it and add the vinegar and olive oil. Seal and shake well. (Note: Depending on the size of your lemon you may want to squeeze half the lemon first and taste before adding the other half. I personally like a very lemony flavor!)
  7. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss.

Enjoy!

NOTE: If you are presenting this to company you may want to add the avocado last and arrange it nicely, as it tends to fall to the bottom when tossed.

I love mushrooms, and portobellos are just big enough to make a meal out of. Really it looks more “piled” than “stuffed,” but adding veggies makes portobellos perfect for lunch!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 large portobello mushroom
  • 1/2 of a tomato
  • a few slices of onion

Instructions:

  1. Preheat a oven or toaster oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place the portobello mushroom on a baking sheet or dish, stem up.
  3. Cut very thin slices of butter and place them around the inside of the mushroom.
  4. Peel a clove of garlic and mince or put through a garlic press. Sprinkle it around the inside of the mushroom, over the butter.
  5. Slice a tomato and place around the stem.
  6. Grate some lemon zest over the tomatoes.
  7. Sprinkle your choice of shredded cheese over the whole thing.
  8. Place in the oven for 20-25 minutes. A fork will easily slide in when it is done.

Enjoy!
