Yummy in Mah Tummy Low-Carb Wraps

IMG_5672.JPG

Oh hey, Collard Green (Goddess) Wraps. Where have you been all my life? There wasn’t too much green about this. I saw this recipe floating around as a low-carb alternative to wraps, and I knew I just had to try these. These wraps aren’t hard to make, but just require a bit of patience, prep for chopping and time to assemble. You can add such different flavors by mixing up the hummus, the protein (swap chicken for tofu, turkey, beef, etc.) and the herbs. Plus, it’s near the end of collard green season, and stores are bursting with these huge, beautifully dark green leaves.

Glowing After These Moroccan Chickpea Glow Bowls

Remember that Avocado Tzatziki? Obviously it had a purpose — for Moroccan Chickpea Glow Bowls with Avocado Tzatziki 🤗. The original recipe called these “detox” bowls and I can see why. You’re definitely satisfied after eating these, but not in an overly full, stuffed sort of way. The flavors are great! I haven’t experimented too much with Moroccan cooking and spices, but the blend was on point and a nice change from Thai, Indian, Mexican or Italian cuisine. I also tried these swapping the rice for shredded, plain chicken, which works well if you want a carnivore option. The mint in the tzatziki pairs so well with the spices and the jalapeño cilantro hummus adds a nice kick (but you can use any hummus or omit it entirely). The wonderful thing about these glow bowls is you can play around with them, swap ingredients, mix and match and really make them your own.

The Never-Go-Hungry Breakfast Sandwich

Power Breakfast Sandwich

I don’t know what I just made, but this Power Breakfast Sandwich should be illegal. It’s been quite warm up my fourth floor apartment in Boston sans AC.  For the breakfast, I’ve been sticking to things that are cool and no fuss — overnight oats, smoothies, yogurt parfaits or cereal. Lately, they haven’t been cutting it. I’ve been craving a breakfast sandwich. Not a usual ham, egg and cheese, but something downright different. Plus, I saw this mouthwatering avocado egg sandwich on Hungry Betches instagram account. (All of her food looks ridiculous — ridiculously tasty that is.) I knew I need avocado in this sandwich after seeing that. Sriracha sounded like a good pairing, and I have hummus begging to be used in my fridge. My mom got the idea of pairing hummus and eggs after making one of Giada De Laurentiis‘ veggie breakfast wraps with hummus and poached eggs. Toss in some spinach over a multigrain bagel, and an unlikely grouping of ingredients to make the best breakfast I’ve had in ages.
