Oftentimes when people find out about how I eat, they say something to the effect of, "... so you eat, like, salad?"
Usually that's the point at which I try to convince our hypothetical person that I'm not a salad-crazed lunatic by talking about more complex dishes; nuts, seeds, dehydrated treats, pizzas, pates, cakes, cookies, etcetera. But I have to say, deep in my heart of raw hearts, SALADS ARE MY FAVORITE. And wraps? Wraps are just another way to bask in the green glory. (Shimmy shimmy.)
The past few days I have been living off the most simple, satisfying salad wraps you could possibly imagine. Here's the basic recipe:
- Salad. This can, obviously, mean a number of things. Greens, dressing, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, whatevah. Be creative!
- Sprouts. Alfalfa, chickpea, sunseed, pea shoots, etc.
- Avocado, slice-y or dice-y.
- Optional: a nut/seed pate of some sort.

In other news, as of last night I can officially hold a headstand! YES! After taking a long walk with the lovely Claire this morning, we both spent about half-an-hour experimenting with upside-down-ness in the family room. I have videos. And this picture of Claire:
