Short and Sweet – April 8

Okay so my last post didn’t really get as many hits as my previous posts, so I’ll keep it short and sweet because I have some reading to do. Last week I ate A LOT of junk food. Don’t judge me! It was delicious. But yeah, I need to get that out of my system haha.

Vegetable Hummus Wrap

Ingredients:
•Wrap of your choice (I used Mission’s Zesty Garlic Herb wrap because I couldn’t find the 100 calorie ones at the store)
•Hummus of your choice (I used roasted pepper)
• Vegetables of your choice (I used baby spinach, shredded carrots, peas, avocado)
• Lime Juice

Cooking Instructions

1. Spread the hummus on the wrap (I used 2 table spoons)
2. Evenly spread the vegetables on the wrap
3. Roll the wrap tightly
4. Cut into pieces (optional)

TIP! If you’re going to cut it into pieces, cut them into thicker pieces. It’s really hard to cut them in thinner pieces. Also, roll it REALLY tightly or it will fall apart.

Also made these beauts to snack on. They are DELICIOUS!

Ingredients:
• 2 ripe bananas
• Greek yogurt
• Crushed almonds
• Cinnamon (optional)
• Popsicle sticks

Cooking Instructions

1. Peel and cut bananas in half
2. Cover bananas in yogurt
3. Cover bananas in almonds
4. Sprinkle cinnamon on
5. Freeze

These were kind of difficult to make haha. I had to crush the almonds myself with a ladle. I couldn’t figure out how to effectively coat the bananas in yogurt. Eventually I just figured it was easier to dump spoonfuls of yogurt on it and spread it around with the spoon. Dipping the banana in the yogurt did not work out for me.

OH! You can also mix the cinnamon into the yogurt before you put the yogurt on the banana if you want…
