Tuna Wraps & Applesauce

Happy Super Sunday!!!! I hope everyone is having an awesome day so far :) Today is very low-key for the Meggilizz, I'll be going over to my friend's house tonight for a little Super Bowl partaaaay action. It should be fun!!

This morning I slept in just a *tiny* bit but made it to the church on time :P I had a green monster for breakfast.

Today's recipe before blending:

2 handfuls spinach
1/2 banana
1/2 c frozen strawberries
1 T coconut oil*
1 scoop vanilla whey powder*

It was delicious, as usual! After church, I picked up a Starbucks FF latte and went to the store to get some produce that I'd forgotten yesterday afternoon. How can you forget carrots & tomatoes??? I guess you can, and I did. Hmph.

Somehow I found myself with a LOT of extra apples in my fridge and not wanting them to go to waste, I'd normally make apple crisp. But being that is NOT the most healthy option, I went in search for a good recipe for homemade applesauce instead. I smooshed together a few recipes in my head, then kinda just winged it ;)

Meggilizz's Homemade Applesauce

11 apples--mixture of Pink Lady, Red Delicious and Empire
1-2 t brown sugar*
1/2 c water
2 T cinnamon
1 T cloves
1 t nutmeg (I would've added more, but ran out)
1 T olive oil
1/2 T French sea salt

I chunked the apples rather than chopping them b/c I like applesauce more chunky. Put everything in a big pot together, cover and heat on low for 1-2 hours. My stove is pretty hot (even on low heat) so I cooked mine for only about an hour and 15 minutes.

And the finished, delumptious applesauce!

Now I've got a nice supply of applesauce and Mexican-type dishes in my freezer, this blog may get a little repetitive over the next few days folks!!!

For lunch I made a wonderful healthy tuna salad wrap. I mixed together the tuna filling:

1 can white tuna, packed in water
2 t olive oil
1 t mayonnaise*
1 T FF sour cream
Salt, pepper, Bombay Veggie seasoning (luff that stuff!!)
1/2 avocado, mashed up
2-3 T diced onion

Then layered the tuna stuffing with spinach and tomatoes on a Flatout* wrap.

Rolled it up and had it with some baby carrots. :)

Ohhhh babies!!!! This was a truly nomtastic lunch affair!!! I'll probably make up some more tuna filling to have on hand for lunches this week. Perhaps in a pita pocket would be less messy than a Flatout, oui??

I'm outtie for now, gonna read my Pirate book that a certain someone gave me and head over to my friend's house for the game. See y'all later!!!!! :D
