3. Grain Bowls

I like to use Trader Joe’s Riced Cauliflower as my base and then top with shredded chicken and veggies. For more grain bowl ideas, click here.

4. Lettuce Wraps

5. Tacos

Just heat up any leftover meat, seafood or veggies you have in your fridge, add to some corn or flour tortilla, top with some salsa and/or guac and you have the recipe for a delicious taco! for taco recipes/inspiration, click here.
