Happy Wrapping

Romaine Wrap

I love romaine lettuce. It’s soooo crunchy  and can be used in many different ways. One of my favorites is to use it as a wrap for other yummy food. In the photo above, I had zucchini hummus, shredded cabbage, shredded carrots, and avocado. Wrap it all up and there you go! You have a quick and easy meal.

Another favorite is the walnut meat tacos. Be sure to try those babies…they will knock your socks off! In that recipe, I made it as a salad, but you can also wrap them in romaine leaves. Side note…those are my “stand by” recipes for salsa and guacamole. They’re amazing. And that cashew “sour cream” could be used on just about anything.

And lastly, on a variation of the recipe above, comes probably the fastest raw meal around…salsa and guacamole in a romaine leaf. So tasty and satisfying!

Happy Wrapping!

    I wrap everything in lettuce. So good. My favorite is hummus, cucumber, dill, tomatoes and carrots….or avacado and hot hot salsa!

    zucchini hummus? yum! What is in it? Can you use your vita mix (like reg hummus) or do you have to use a food processor?

    That walnut taco recipe is awesome (kids like it, and so easy to make!)
    I just don’t do very well on nuts these days- too heavy, I guess:)

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
