Healthy Roll Ups

I was at Whole Foods today and passed by a display of tortillas. I got an idea of making fun, healthy, bite-sized roll ups. There were so many different flavors & colors of tortillas and this is such a fun way to get your protein, nutrients, or antioxidants in; on the go. It’s also a good bite sized snack when you have those late night munchies or cravings. It’s better to satisfy your tastebuds late at night with something healthy and bite sized rather than something processed. Try it and let me know what roll ups you come up with šŸ™‚

Here is a chicken roll up to get the ball “rolling” hehe.

You will need:

1 tortilla (I used a wheat tortilla by Rudi’s)
grilled chicken breast
sliced cucumbers
hummus
fresh black pepper

Spread the hummus.Ā 
Slice the chicken breast and cucumbers into thin pieces.Ā 
Layer the chicken breast and cucumbers on the tortilla.Ā 
Add some black pepper to taste.Ā 
Now roll the tortilla starting from the end. Use the hummus at the end as “glue” to hold the roll together.Ā 
With a sharp knife, slice the roll into bite size pieces.Ā 
And, done! See, its so easy. This is a more fun and tasteful way to get your protein in for the day šŸ™‚

I blended avocado with a dash of almond breeze and some stevia (sugar) as a sweet treat šŸ™‚

Being healthy doesn’t always have to be boring and bland. Try and find new and fun ways to change up your food so you don’t get so bored/tired of eating “clean”. Email, message, or comment me with what you came up with šŸ™‚ I love hearing from you guys. Cheers to a happy and healthy lifestyle ā¤
