A good way to re-use some of the rich and heavy leftovers from all the holiday dinners without ending up feeling extra stuffed is just to take a smallish portion of the decadent food and throw it into a somewhat light lunch. Your little portion will satisfy any craving and provide maximum flavor and taste. Just add extra volume with fresh veggies and you’ve got the ultimate lunch.
A tiny handful of buttery green beans tossed in with a giant helping of fresh romaine, carrots, bell peppers, and cucumbers. All topped with a drizzle of blue cheese dressing.
Or for the mexican food lover (like Chris), mix about a third cup portion of pulled shredded pork with light slaw and hot sauce and roll it up in a palm-sized corn tortilla. Voila! This should make your tastebuds and your waistline pretty happy.
