Food of the Earth

I never understood that expression - Food of the Earth...well given that all food is from Earth doesn't that make ALL food Food of the Earth? Oh, the FH told me the expression is Fruit of the Earth...if only my natural hair color was blonde. This Veggie Wrap is Earth Day friendly because you're not using any external energy to make it and it's good and Earthy with lots of Veg. So Happy Earth day.

Very Veggie Hummus Wrap

What you need:
Hummus (see this post - now this Hummus I made with 1 can of Chick Peas and 1 can of Small White Beans because I wanted more beans for protein and fiber for my bun in the oven)
Wraps (I use the Carb Watch kind that have 9 Grams of Fiber)
Mozzarella Cheese
Roasted Red Pepper
Red Onion Diced Small
All the Veg

What you do:
1. Make the hummus. I recommend adding the white beans here because it makes it yummy with extra protein. Sometimes I add grilled chicken if we have leftovers.

2. Chop up all your Veg - now you obviously don't need all this veg - but it's a great way to use up the veg and get in your daily 8 servings. Put in a big bowl and dump in a good amount of hummus so that your vegetables get coated with your hummus.

3. Put a bed of lettuce down on your wrap and then scoop in your Vegetables. Wrap it up and ENJOY! It's so yummy and healthy and filling.
