It's a Wrap

First, I wanna thank all of ya'll for your kind words and support about my stupid burglary situation. It really sucks, but your comments made me feel better.

Before all that crap happened, I made some awesome Breakfast Veggie, Fruit, & Nut Wraps:

I had extra Tofutti cream cheese lying around, and I wanted to eat in some way other than smeared on a bagel. So I did a little Google search for cream cheese ideas and stumbled on a recipe for kid's healthy breakfast wraps. I don't remember where I found it, and I really didn't use the recipe — just the idea — so I can't link to it. But the wraps were touted as a way to get kids to eat their fruits and veggies for breakfast.

I'd planned on using up some extra Food for Life Brown Rice tortillas, but discovered they were kinda moldy. Ick! So I made my own whole wheat tortillas using Jessy's recipe on HappyVeganFace. These were awesome and super easy to make. And it felt good knowing that I made my own tortillas.

The insides are stuffed with Tofutti cream cheese, shredded carrot, organic raisins, dried apples, and raw walnuts. These made me feel all healthy for the beginning of my day. And I think they'd also make a great pre-workout snack in the afternoon.

Love the making your own tortillas. Perhaps I'll give it a whirl. Hope things get figured out with the burglary. That is awful!
