It's day 6 of my cleanse and I'm craving two things: solid food for dinner and wine. Especially the wine.
The soups I can handle, I just wish it wasn't so hot out because I feel like I'm in an inferno sitting in my living room, on a suede couch with a steaming bowl of soup in my lap. I'm sweating just thinking about it. And yes, if you're wondering, I always eat dinner on my couch.
Why? Because we don't have a dining room table. Actually, we don't have any table whatsoever (much to my mother's chagrin). We live in New York City, space is extremely limited, and for a great kitchen, we gave up space for eating. So we eat on the couch. We make compromises for what's important, huh?
Anywhoo…back to what I'm eating. Lots of yummy smoothies and soups of course, but the lunches are my favorite. I've been eating these veggie wraps for the past three days and they are now one of my favorite meals. One that I'm definitely going to be enjoying long after the cleanse.
I started with my fave gluten-free tortillas, the brown rice version from Trader Joe's (the non-TJ brand is Food for Life), then added homemade hummus, quinoa, carrots, cucumbers, avocado, and greens. So easy, but seriously so tasty!
So easy in fact, I've giving you a step-by-step tutorial of how to put it together. This is my first tutorial, so let me know what you think. I was hoping it would be easy for you to pin and save for later!!
- 1 brown rice tortilla
- 2 tablespoons hummus
- 1/4 cup cooked quinoa (I used rainbow)
- 1 small carrot, grated
- 1/2 small cucumber, sliced
- 1/4 avocado, sliced
- 1 handful greens
Assemble the ingredients inside the wrap in the order listed. Roll it up and enjoy!
