Today was a crazy busy day - lots of running around and lots of running (17K) - In the winter I like to run to and from the studio where I usually end up doing a lot of demo in the classes I teach (and in the summer i’m on my bike most of the time).
So it’s really important to me to fuel up with light, easily digestible foods that are highly nutritious - BUT it’s equally important to me that what I make tastes deliciously good!
Because I had a long busy day I chose to make something light and I wanted the base to be a lot of leafy greens - as usual … if you follow my blog. We know from a previous post that leafy greens do a lot to manage the proliferation of free radicals - especially after exercise - and anything we can do to mitigate the proliferation of free radicals will reduce inflammation in the body. And this is exactly what I want after an active and full day.
The collard green wrap is awesome because it takes the place of a regular wrap if you want something light or something unprocessed - I filled it with the following ingredients:
4 Steamed Mushrooms
2 Handfuls Spinach
1 Small Handful Parsley
2 tsp Hemp Seeds
¼ Apple - Chopped
3 oz Tempeh
Drizzle of Vega EFA Oil
1 tsp Mustard Seeds
(Salt & Pepper to taste)
I made my drink with 1tsp Maca (by Sequel), Organic Cacao (per serving it offers up 3 grams of protein, 4 grams of fibre and ZERO grams of sugar - ummm LOVE chocolate without the sugar non?)
Then I added in homemade Almond Milk, Cinnamon, a drop of Agave to sweeten and about 2 tbsp of Silken Tofu to add thickness and a little extra protein.
So tasty!! Enjoy - this took me less than 10 minutes to put all of this together.
