This may be the most recipe-less recipe I’ve created! Besides the sauce, everything else is more of just a cut and go… and if we’re being honest Trader Joe’s has it all pre cut and ready if you are pressed for time! (They truly are the best market of all markets!) On to the wrap….
Feel free to adjust it to your liking by excluding any ingredient or adding some of your other favorites.
Swiss Chard is my choice of wrap and it gives it the most perfect robust crunch. If you’ve never had Chard before this is a great way to introduce it to your regimen. Swiss chard is one of, if not the most, nutrient dense greens! It’s packed with powerful antioxidants for fighting cancers, protecting your skin and keeping your brain young. It contains a good amount of magnesium, potassium, calcium and vitamins A & K and it’s useful in regulating blood sugar levels by managing insulin release with an enzyme called alpha-glucosidase. Quadruple whammy in the world of bang for your bite!
Turmeric is my spice of choice for these, as it’s one of the most powerful herbs for an immune system boost; which we can all use this time of year. It also contains curcumin; an active ingredient that plays a big role in reducing inflammation in the body; leading to less risk for disease.
Parsnips and carrots are the main veggies for the base of the wrap. Both are fantastic root vegetables for a source of energy promoting carbohydrates that are full of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
The broccoli rice ised is a take on traditional rice and tastes oh so wonderful in combination with the rest, leaving you with a satisfied stomach.
I chopped up a fresh salmon burger and added it to the mix for healthy omega fats and protein. Other combinations that would pair, are beans for vegetarian or vegans, tofu, shrimp or crab.
The sauce contains some of my favorite flavors and nutrients that are also digestive friendly and immune system boosting however it would be sumblime with a simple hummus, guacamole, pesto, or salsa.
