“Eat your vegetables. Don’t become one.”
I have this unproductive habit of purchasing large containers of organic greens and ignoring them. A bowl filled with greens just isn’t my first choice when putting together a lunch.
However, I know that I could find all sorts of health reasons online to eat more, raw veggies. How to proceed? Think, think….
Bingo! One of my favorite foods is a wrap. Meat and cheese and various sauces inside a tortilla-like holder always gets my vote for a tasty lunch. Adding a bunch of lettuce would be manageable. My task, now, is to make sure I always have tortilla wraps in the house when the good nutrition fairy inspires me to purchase organic greens.
Full disclosure – I’m shying away from gluten. However, there are various gluten free wraps. Not all of them are created equal. It took a bit of experimenting to find one that works for me. My current wrap of choice –
I really like this particular wrap because it’s tasty, flexible, and firm enough to take a lot of filling.
My latest creation included the last of the deli chicken, shredded cheese, spicy peanut sauce, sliced jalapeños and a boatload of greens. When using cheese I generally place that on the wrap first and nuke it for about 20 seconds. That keeps it from escaping and taking up residence on the front of my body.
I also enjoy roasted veggies with spicy peanut sauce with organic greens. These are all fast and easy lunches, which are also a great way to use up bits and pieces of leftovers. The possibilities are endless, which is the way I like my possibilities.
