Veggie Bowls or Wraps

Lettuce, black beans, corn, tomato, avocado, taco sauce, sour cream
Saylor was here this weekend and I needed to make a gluten and dairy free lunch for him, so we looked in the refrigerator and made a meal.  Left overs often make great lettuce bowls or wraps.  My grandson loves these in place of a sandwich.  His favorite is a BLT without the bread.

Lettuce, tomato, bacon and mayo
You can also make tacos with out the shell. Here are some suggestions for filler.

Black beans
Fresh salsa or taco sauce
Sour cream (Saylor has to pass on this)

This is another great way to use up those tomatoes, corn, lettuce from your garden.

Variation - You can add meat to it if you like.  Left over grilled chicken or steak, or taco seasoned hamburger.  Add some grated cheese of your choice.

Make a salad of what ever you have in the refrigerator and put a little ranch dressing on the fixings.   Sliced red onion or green onion, grated carrot, radishes or what ever veggie your garden is producing.  

Fill leaf lettuce with a chicken or tuna salad.  Would be great with a chicken salad with walnuts and grapes. It is a great way to get rid of some carbs and calories by just skipping the bread.

Hope you have a great day, be happy and may God bless you and yours.
