Green Wrap

March 9, 2010 at 1:50 am 17 comments

I’ve been eating a lot of this lately. I’ve talked about it before…but it’s worth repeating. It’s so easy to make…and it’s filling and raw! The raw diet does not have to be fancy or gourmet. It needs to be easy and something you will do willingly and joyfully. This makes me happy every time I eat it.

It’s also something that is very easy to take with you if you have a busy schedule (take the components of it in separate containers and assemble at work or in the car). If you are traveling and you need a healthy option for a meal, you could just run into a grocery store and grab some romaine, an avocado, and sprouts, and you’d be good to go. I would suggest carrying a little container of sea salt or dulse flakes in your bag so that you’re prepared at all times!

My favorite (more complex) combo is:

Romaine leaf or butter lettuce leaf
Untoasted nori
Cucumber strips
Green onions (the green part)
Mashed avocado + lime + sea salt
Cilantro or basil
Homemade salsa (if I have it on hand)

    I love romaine wraps!! I like to make vegan raw “burger” recipes and just skip the dehydration phase (since I don’t have one!). It makes a great filling for lettuce wraps.

    What great timing I’m going to get the ingredients tonight (I have all but the sprouts and the lettuce) and have this for lunch tomorrow! Can’t wait. This will be easy to take with to Boji too.

    What inspiration! I am just transitioning to raw and trying to drag a husband and 2 teenage boys along! I made these with what I had…red leaf lettuce, avocado mixed with lime juice, carrots strips, cilantro and sprouts I sprouted myself…everybody loved them! Thanks so much for your wonderful blogs…you are inspiring healthy change in my family!

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
