Wrapping it Up

I’ve been on a collard wrap binge lately.  Pre-raw, I wasn’t a big fan of collard greens.  They are extremely good for you, but I didn’t care for their taste or texture cooked, unless they were chopped up itty bitty into a soup.

Turns out I prefer them raw.  I make wraps with whatever cashew spread I have on hand, typically either garlic cashew mayo or cashew red pepper spread.  I then top it with whatever veggies I have on hand, thinly sliced.  I make 3-4  and find it to be a perfectly filling and crunchy lunch.

What’s for lunch for you these days?
