One of my favorite God-given traits is my intense love for vegetables. I have loved eating vegetables since as far back as I can remember. My parents never had the typical toddler power struggle with me at the dinner table. I never complained about eating my brussels sprouts or cauliflower (pickled beets are the exception, yucky).
To this day, I crave vegetables above almost everything else (except for ice cream during pregnancy). Some of my favorite "snacks" include: a plateful of steamed broccoli sprinkled with sour salt and fresh lemon juice, cucumbers and tomatoes soaked in salad vinegar, artichoke hearts dipped in butter and an avocado with a tiny bit of salt.
Veggies are great snacks, but they can also be a part of a great meal. One of the things I have been enjoying lately is making lunches for myself on the weekends. This is typically when I have the most time to be creative with my beloved vegetables. One of my recent lunch staples is a delicious, and extremely simple, turkey wrap. It takes me no more than four minutes to put this together.
Top a giant piece of flatbread with:
A zig-zag of mayo (omit this if you want to make it more health-friendly)
A zig-zag of mustard
A couple slices of turkey
Sprinklings of: seasoning salt, salt and pepper
Other ingredients I have been known to add:
Green bell peppers
I always use Flatout Flatbread for my wraps. I discovered it a few months ago and everyone in my family loves it, including Mr. Picky Elijah.
Once all of the ingredients are laid out, roll up the flatbread, cut in half and EAT.
