lentil wrap wrapped

I absolutely love wraps- you can quickly stuff a ton of food in them and they just roll up into a clean and easily transported meal.  Perfect for work.

This super easy wrap consists of the following ingredients:

  • 1 whole grain, high fiber wrap
  • 1/4 cup of canned lentils
  • Red peppers, chopped
  • Salad herb blend (parsley, red onion, chives, shallots, garlic, dill)
  • Hummus

I also recommend putting spinach on it.

‘Cado’ ‘n’ Cuc’ Sandwich

In Beyond Easy, Lunch, Sandwich on May 29, 2010 at 2:40 pm

This is not a recipe, per se, but rather instructions for making a darn tasty sandwich!

Guac Sandwhich

My lunch today consisted of one of the above sandwiches.

Ingredients for One Sandwich

  • 1 whole wheat, organic English muffin, toasted
  • 3 or 4 pieces of spinach
  • 3 or 4 slices of a peeled cucumber
  • 4 slices of avocado

Josh put cheese on his sandwich, which he said he really liked.

Tip: put the avocado on the top layer- the sandwich will be unstable if your put them lower on the sandwich.

Yes, every bite of an avocado is packed with fat and calories, but it is not bad fat. The nutritional benefits are outstanding!

I put the left over slices of avocado in a bag with lime juice so they will stay fresh.  Thinkin’ about making some tasty guacamole tomorrow!
