Ham & Veggies “Sushi” Recipe + Clean Eating Challenge Week Meal Plan

14325739085_0308a43a7a_c

Happy Monday Everyone!!  I hope you all had a great weekend. I totally have a case of the Monday’s right now, from such a nice relaxing weekend.   As I mentioned yesterday in my post and on my Facebook Fan page last week, I am hosting a 7 Day Clean Eating Challenges and posting a clean eating recipe each day this week! Today’s post is going to include both a fun and easy recipe for Ham & Veggies Sushi, as well as my Clean Eating Challenge Meal Plan.

Ham & Veggies Sushi is an easy snack or lunch pairing to get a little extra protein and veggies into your day. Or even a great finger food for the kids.

To get started, you are going to need some of your favorite veggies- or whatever you have on hand- prepped and ready for assembly.  Here is what I dug out of my fridge… over half the rainbow here! Sweet red and yellow peppers, carrots, cucumbers, dill pickles, cooked asparagus and avocado.  This is what I had on hand, but you could totally throw in some spinach, celery, zucchini, squash, etc.

 

Then bust out your favorite humus!. I normally buy the hummus that is on sale- no brand allegiance here. I love anything with Roasted Garlic, however this brand could step it up in the garlic flavor department. And if you know me, you know I can’t handle any spice, so the Spicy 3 Pepper hummus is for The Fiances “sushi”, not mine.

Then you need some meat. We had ham at home- which is why it is in the title too- but you could do this with turkey, chicken or roast beef too.

Now it is time to assemble your “sushi” roll.  This is The Fiances roll- a thick layer of ham (6 slices overlapping 3/4 of the way), red & yellow peppers, avocado and pickles (his favorite!).  Next roll it all together and slice with a serrated knife.

There you have it, a ham and veggie sushi roll!  Snack on friends!
