I really like to have fun. Throw a birthday in the mix, and you’ve got a recipe for too much fun.
Too much fun usually involves too much wine, and this calls for a much needed detox, with lots of green vegetables and gallons of water. Don’t worry, if you want to detox, then you shouldn’t sacrifice yummy food. You just have to get a little more creative.
These collard green wraps were my sister’s idea, post-wine tasting trip (you can look forward to tomorrow’s post for those goodies)… I was hesitant, because I’m not a fan of collard greens…but I was seriously mistaken. Collard greens are a hidden gem for healthy recipes: they are versatile, provide interesting texture, and taste great, too.
Give these wraps a try the next time you need to take a break from having fun. Or, just throw them in your weekly rotation of healthy food. These are my newest go-to…hello, skinny? I hear you calling my name.
Detox Green Wraps
I made these wraps with groceries purchased from Whole Foods — everything is already prepared, so this truly is the perfect weeknight meal that takes all of TEN minutes to prepare. Or less. Do it.
You will need:
1 collard green leaf per wrap
Sesame tofu sticks
Avocado, cut into slices
Quinoa Salad (your favorite variety – check out the prepared foods section)
Seasoned Rice Vinegar
1. Spread the hummus on the collard green leaf
2. Pile high with quinoa, tofu, carrots, and edamame beans
3. Add avocado. Drizzle with rice vinegar.
4. Hold like a taco. Munch. Enjoy!
