How To Make My Favorite Butter Lettuce Salad

I love me a good salad. If you have been part of the community on my blog for sometime, you know this. However recently,  I have been getting more adventurous with flavor combos and ingredients. Today I am sharing my most recent creation, which has become a favorite for my lunches at work. It’s so easy to throw together the night before or in the morning before you leave. I know you will look forward to eating this salad as much as I do!  Continue reading How To Make My Favorite Butter Lettuce Salad

Easy Breakfast Wraps – Gluten Free & Paleo Friendly

Breakfast is easily my favorite meal of the day. I love almost any and all breakfast food. When I was in college down in California, the breakfast burrito was reigning breakfast champ. I loved all the breakfast goodness wrapped up in warm tortilla.  Since finding out that I am allergic to gluten, I have had to modify many breakfasts and pretty much gave up on the breakfast burrito due to lack of large corn tortillas. I have successfully re-reated french toast and pancakes, two of my current favs, but I was missing a one handed breakfast wonder… until now!

This is no breakfast burrito, but it is pretty darn close – all the breakfast goodness rolled up into a tasty meal! These wraps make a great on-the-go breakfast. They are paleo friendly, gluten free and very easy to make. You can even make the filling ahead of time to save precious moments on a busy morning.

I stumbled upon these paleo wraps one day at Whole Foods. I do not follow a paleo diet, however I was intrigued that they were gluten free. I checked the ingredients and they are made mostly of coconut, which means they are very low carb and gluten free. They were on sale so I figured, “I’ll give them a whirl”. So glad I did!!!

I garnished mine with some of the mixed greens I used and some baby heirloom tomatoes. You could also pair this with some spicy salsa. Whether you are looking for a paleo friendly recipe or not, these wraps are great and super tasty. I enjoyed being able to mimic a large tortilla with them, something I haven’t been able to do in a long time. If you aren’t a coconut fan, you could substitute 2-3 corn tortillas and have breakfast tacos instead of the wrap. πŸ™‚

XOXO
Stay Sweet!
