Rock and Roll-y Guacamole Wrap

guac

I crack myself up..Rock and Roll-y.  Here is the breakfast I made for today- a fresh, gorgeous, healthy, satisfying guacamole wrap. On some days, I just want simple without a lot of fuss. I have major projects and assignments due today and more on Friday so this is how it is going to be all week! I am happy to report that even with a bit of end of semester stress, I am still MPD (More Pounds Down)!

Guacamole Wrap Recipe

Gather:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tomato
  • 1/2 small onion
  • Handful of cilantro (chopped)
  • Ground pepper to season
  • Squirt of lime juice
  • 1 Ezekiel sprouted whole grain wrap
  • Baby spinach leaves
  • Daiya cheese

Create:

Peel and chop the avocado. Place into bowl. Add chopped tomato (I leave the seeds and everything in but that is up to you). Add chopped onion and cilantro. Mash and stir together. Season with ground pepper and lime juice.

Place the wrap with spinach and cheese on top in the microwave for about a minute. Top with two teaspoons of guacamole. Wrap and enjoy! ~Amanda Rae

Corn, Black Bean and Pineapple Fiesta Salad

BeanCilantroSalad2

This was the perfect recipe for a sunny day! I wanted something cold but satisfying and this did the trick. Not the mention the fact that it was so incredibly easy and I am ALL about that. It keeps in the refrigerator for a few days nicely too. Would be a great dish for a cookout and next time, I am going to put it on some brown rice!

Corn and Bean Fiesta Salad

Gather:

  • 1 can of low or no sodium black beans
  • 1 can of pineapple chunks
  • 1 package of frozen corn
  • 2 teaspoons of chopped red pepper
  • 2 teaspoons of chopped green pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon of diced purple onion
  • Handful of cilantro coarse chopped

Create:

Cook the corn as directed. Add corn to large bowl and allow to cool. Add all ingredients to the bowl and let chill in refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

Also…did you know:

Pineapples take about 18 months to grow.

One cup of pineapple has about 135 calories and 33% of the RDA of Vitamin C. Enjoy! ~Amanda Rae

Slow Cooker Kale Soup Recipe

CookingKaleSoup

There is nothing quite like coming home and thinking “Ahhh…I don’t have to cook.” I use this slow cooker kale soup recipe about once per week. It is never quite the same soup twice but it always tastes GOOD. It feels like “healing” after a day of stress and work. It is also great for taking to school the next day for lunch.
