Fall Turkey Apple Wrap with side spinach salad
1 Whole Wheat Tortilla (I like Maya’s brand, they’re a medium size and only have 90 calories per tortilla)
1 medium red apple – sliced (Your favorite kind of red apple)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg
4 oz. (for one adult) Baked Turkey Breast (I use Kirkland oven roasted turkey breast – from Costco. It’s precooked and so easy to use)
1/4 C cottage cheese (I use Kroger fat free, for kids use the regular)
1/2 – 1 Tbsp spicy brown mustard
1-2 Cups Fresh Baby Spinach
1/4 C (about 50g) Fresh chopped Strawberries
The quantities here are for 1 adult. Adjust for how many are in your family (and for kids).
Heat a skillet to medium, spray with cooking oil (I like Pam olive oil best, or a tsp of Coconut oil, you don’t need very much, just enough so that the food doesn’t stick). Slice your turkey into thin deli slices, or chop into pieces (anyway you like it), sauté the turkey in the skillet until heated. Add apple slices and cinnamon and nutmeg. Sauté the turkey, apples & spices, until the apples soften a little.
Heat the tortilla in a pan, to warm it up and crisp it a little. Heat both sides.
Mix the cottage cheese and mustard together, add more mustard if you prefer, or for little kids omit the mustard if they don’t like it. Put your tortilla on a plate, add the turkey & about 1/2 of the apples, put the cottage cheese mustard mix on top, wrap it up (served warm). For a side salad, simply use the fresh baby spinach with strawberries on top. You can add the extra apples on the side. I don’t use salad dressing because the strawberries are sweet enough, but anyone can certainly use their favorite dressing.
**This recipe is very low in fat, especially if you use fat free cottage cheese. 1 adult serving with quantities listed above is 362 calories, 44g carbs, 2g fats, 42g protein (16 grams of sugar, 14 of those are from the apple and strawberries, no added sugar). Because this recipe is so low in fat, you can add some shredded mozzarella cheese to your wrap or salad if you like! You can also use Ham for the meat. I use Turkey because of the lower fat content and higher protein. (1,006 g sodium)
