Green Wrap


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
Sprouts
Cilantro or basil
Homemade salsa (if I have it on hand)

Enjoy!

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!

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
