Random Recipe Exchange

Well, you all know that I LOVE recipes. Therefore I LOVE to participate in Pam from Random Thoughts Recipe Exchange.

For this recipe exchange we were suppossed to post a favorite "Lunch Recipe." I've been trying to eat better; less meat & chicken and more veggies.

With that said I bring you the

California Veggie Wrap

1 tbsp. spreadable cream cheese or your favorite salad dressing
1 large (10-inch/25-cm) flour tortilla, regular or flavored
2 tbsp. shredded carrot
2 tbsp. thinly sliced red or yellow pepper
2 tbsp. chopped red onion
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 avocado, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup baby spinach leaves (or torn arugula)
1/4 cup alfalfa sprouts
salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Instructions
Spread cream cheese or dressing over the tortilla .
Arrange all the filling ingredients in a row along the center one-third of the tortilla. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Roll the tortilla up as tightly as possible to enclose the filling without tearing the tortilla. Cut in half crosswise and eat immediately, or wrap both halves in plastic wrap to pack into a lunch bag.

Remember you can add extra veggies or substitute if there is something in the wrap you don't like. Be creative!

Perfect! I've been really trying to eat a lot less meat too, and much more veggies and fruit. This looks so yummy!

I love cooking. I make a quick Mexican type meal that is so good and easy. I cook some red peppers and onions in a pan, add some chopped up chicken until cooked. Then I add some black beans and salsa until heated through and eat it that way. You could add some cheese or put it in a tortilla if you'd like.

If you go to you can search for healthy recipes from Cooking Light magazine that are really good.

Mmmm... I'd have to add sliced cucumber to this for some crunch! Thanks for sharing!
