Thai chicken lettuce tacos in like five minutes for lunch yesterday. So easy, so light, SO GOOD. The fresh herbs and dressing get me every time -like I take one bite and am instantly thinking WHY DON’T I EAT THESE EVERY DAY.

(Macros = 15c/8f/27p and 240 calories for these five)

Obviously these are SO LIGHT! Leaving plenty of room for twice as many if you’d like! OR… a carby bowl of oatmeal a couple of hours later. Sometimes I want all those macros together, and sometimes it’s amazing to get two delicious small meals out of the same numbers…
