Protein Roll-up

Here's a new healthy creation I conjured up yesterday:

1 Whole Wheat Tortilla/Wrap/Flatbread
2 Tbsps Hummus, any flavor (although I recommend Joseph's Supreme or 1001 Spices)
2 slices Light Bologna
10 slices of pepperoni

Spread Hummus in a rectangle in the middle of the wrap. Layer with bologna and pepperoni and roll. Enjoy!

"Healthy" being a relative term, right? :-) I like using a bit more hummus and tossing on some chopped scallions and edamame.

Oh absolutely, that's the beauty of it - improvise your own wrap. That's just what I made last night and thought I'd share. If I had more veggies in the house I think I'd add those too! Love green onions! But I must admit, I don't know what edamame is...

Improvising your own wrap is a great way to go, and edamame is awesome--they're soybeans in the pod or out of the pod (for Kelly's wrap) that you can buy in the natural or regular frozen foods section. They're also sold near sushi--but those are already cooked and a little mushy sometimes. If they're frozen, you boil them quickly or microwave them, salt 'em or not, and eat 'em. They're great as a snack and very good for you.

For awhile, I was heavily into roasted turkey and hummus on flax seed/whole wheat lavash.

Other tasty thoughts for wraps, depending on your tastes:
1) Roast turkey, pesto, red pepper, spinach.
2) Cheese, tomato, avocado, cucumber, honey mustard.
3) Tuuuuuna--although layering some greens in there is key to structural integrity--a soggy wrap is not a happy wrap. I have a friend who makes his tuna salad with hummus instead of mayo and swears by it. I don't think it's for me, but it's an idea.
