What’s The Wrap?

Since we’re in the middle of the Total Wellness Challenge I am now, more than ever, on a constant search for ways to eat more vegetables. I don’t like complicated recipes. If it has too many ingredients I’ll pass right on by.

Creating a wrap is personal; you can add any healthful ingredients you have on hand. To satisfy a sweet craving I often use apple chunks. Here’s my most recent collard creation:

Ingredients For Each Wrap

2 large collard leaves, cleaned and dried

2 Tablespoons red pepper hummus

1/2 can of white tuna

1/4 of an apple, chopped

1 slice red onion, minced

1/4 avocado, mashed

Handful of baby greens like spinach, romaine etc.

Drizzle balsamic vinaigrette


Wash, dry and prepare your leaves. (See video here)

With two leaves overlapping and thick center stems horizontal to you, begin adding the rest of the ingredients: Spread hummus evenly on leaves then top with tuna, apples, onions, avocado and baby greens. Drizzle with small amount of balsamic vinaigrette and sprinkle lightly with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.

Fold both sides in then carefully begin to roll your wrap as tightly as you can. Cut in half and enjoy!
