Veggie Wrap and 3 ingedient spread

I may have mentioned that I recently purchased some whole grain flatbreads, well I have been using them daily. I've made wraps several times and I've used them twice as a sort of crust.

First I want to share this beautiful veggie wrap that I had for lunch the other day.(and the day before that as well)

This is, obviously, not raw. The flatbread isn't raw and I used a small amount of yogurt that I had been straining for a few days.

 Look at the color in that!

I julienned carrots, yellow squash, and cucumbers...chopped a small amount of red onion, added a few large leaves of romaine lettuce and a tiny bit of crumbled feta.

Rolled it up and there you have it.

Almost.

I made a spicey spread to go on it - strained yogurt, garlic chili sauce, and a tiny dash of peanut butter (raw almond butter would have been better, but I'm fresh out).


This wrap is so simple yet so delicious. And it can be prepared with whatever veggies are in the pantry at the time.

These wraps are quite filling yet very light. I never feel weighed down after eating them because they are mostly live foods. Full of nutrients, easily digested, and moves through the GI tract quickly (which is a good thing to help prevent colon cancer and other illnesses)

What's not to like about that?
