On the rare occasion that we head out to a restaurant to eat you can find me ordering one of my two favorite kinds of meals; some kind of wrap, or a fun dish that’s been transformed into a salad. These dishes seem to be all the rave right now; the simple wrap takes on gourmet spins and the boring salad becomes a fun and exciting new take on classic dishes.
Unfortunately, as these dishes become chock full of fun ingredients their calorie count begins to climb through the roof! You’d think a BBQ chicken salad would be better for you than a plate of BBQ chicken and a couple of sides, but once they add the deep fried cornbread croutons, cheese, crispy strips, and the creamy sugar filled dressing you are in for a calorie overload!
I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands by coming up with a dish that not only gives me what I love to eat while dining out but that also keeps me feeling guilt free about what I’m ingesting. Fresh and delicious Chicken Fajita fixings are stuffed into a warm flour tortilla along with plenty of Litehouse’s OPA Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing and fresh lettuce creating the Ranch Chicken Fajita Salad Wrap. The OPA Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing is so low in calories I can add a couple of spoonfuls to each wrap giving it a creamy indulgent taste and nixing the need for any high calorie cheeses. You won’t miss the cheese, I swear!
Without a good fajita seasoning mix all you have is bland chicken and vegetables wrapped in a tortilla. There is nothing fun about that. Premade seasoning mixes give the sweet and smoky flavor I’m looking for but they also provide insane amounts of sodium, sugar, and unwanted chemicals. Yuck! What’s the point of cooking at home if you’re just going to riddle your food with all of that terrible stuff? Instead try making your own. It is super easy, even more delicious than anything you can buy at the store, and happens to be cheaper to make at home too! Slicing your meat thin and marinating it in my fajita seasoning mix insures maximum flavor that will leave you feeling satisfied and happy to dine in.
The next time you get a craving for your favorite restaurant food think about everything that goes into that plate of food. Do they really make everything from scratch back there in that kitchen? How many sodium and sugar filled sauces make it into your food? Wouldn’t you like to know that your daily calorie intake isn’t being blown in a single meal? Do you really want to spend the money on eating out? Take control of your food and try eating in instead!
