Veggie Wraps & Green Smoothies!

Here's what we're eating around here this week! Veggie wraps, with green smoothies. Here's the great thing-you don't need a recipe for either! Just do something like this:

Open up a tortilla and throw in whatever fresh veggies you might have on hand, and if you don't have tortillas, use a cabbage or lettuce leaf as a wrap. Today for lunch we had cabbage leaf wraps filled with cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions, sprouts, green onions, lettuce, and some homemade Gyro sauce. In a blender, just throw in some chopped cucumber, fat free plain yogurt, and garlic. Yum!
And green smoothies? Easy! Just toss in any fruit you have around. Today we had fresh pineapple, banana, and some blueberries. Blend that up with some water, and once that's blended throw in your greens! I added baby spinach. I also added some stevia to make it a bit sweeter. The girls love this too!
So, veggie wraps and green smoothies are on the menu for most of the week. Dinners a bit more complicated, and I will post some new recipes we tried at the end of the week!
Now, go eat your fruits and veggies!
