Our glorious extended spring is OVER and the heat of summer has arrived. Never ending ninety degree days are in our foreseeable future. Using the oven is a big no-no at my house during the summer. Our AC doesn't work well and the house is always uncomfortably warm; using the oven would exacerbate that.
Since oven-baked anything is a bad idea, and even the thought of boiling water makes me sweat, I plan to serve up simple no-cook wraps and summer salads. Not only are they healthy, but also inexpensive, delicious and filling on hot summer days. Here's my no cook healthy menu for the week:
Monday: leftover barbacoa meat from sunday dinner + tropical cabbage salad
Tuesday: hummus, tzatziki, tabbouleh on naan bread + mango smoothie
Wednesday: tuna or chicken salad wraps (tuna mixed with mayo, whole wheat tortilla, lettuce, bell pepper strips) + watermelon
Thursday: going on a long trip - leftover wrap sandwiches
Friday: rice and bean salad + watermelon
Saturday: cafe rio salad (canned black beans on quesadillas with salad greens, store bought cilantro lime dressing and pico de gallo)
