Cooking with Kelly: A perfect Asian-inspired dinner

I'm trying to eat lots of protein in the days leading up to the Fort2Base Race (which, BTW, the online registration closes at midnight), along with lots of veggies. Now that we're only three days out, I'm also upping my salt intake so that I can retain a little bit of water. I hope that this will give me a little extra hydration come Sunday.

So tonight, I made one of Tim's favorite meals: The Pampered Chef's turkey wonton purses. Technically speaking, this is an appetizer, but any appetizer can be a meal with a side dish. I added steamed edamame with salt for a protein-packed, slightly salt side dish that doubled as my veggie. Plus, both the wontons and the dipping sauce is made with soy sauce, so more salt. Yum!

I really love this meal, even though it takes a little bit of time to assemble the wontons. The spice is awesome and it manages to be lower calories while super tasty.
