Roll into Lunch with these 2 new Rolls!

Getting bored of the same old Sandwiches & Salads? My kids sure are! Here’s an easy & yummy way of getting unstuck & still keep it Healthy!

ROLL #1.

This works best if you make extra Brown Rice the night before & have it cold & ready in the Fridge. I know most people say you need ‘sushi’ rice to make sushi, but it’s just not the case! When you’re ready grab your Nori sheet & Roller & add a bunch of Brown Rice. (mines a little yellow because I cooked it with Turmeric)

Make sure you get it all the way to the end or it won’t stay closed when you roll it.

Now there are a million ways to fill your Sushi. Cucumbers, Salsa, Lettuce, Hummus, Chard, Olives, Beans,Carrots, ANYTHING! Today I really wanted to just keep it SUPER SIMPLE! All I added was a bunch of Roasted RedPepper Miso.

I rolled this baby up, cut & ate it faster then a bat~outta~hell!!! πŸ™‚

Because this Brown Rice wasn’t ‘sushi’ rice, it wasn’t as sticky. But that didn’t bother me one bit. These babies are SO fast & easy to make, plus they taste delish & are healthy (depending on what you put in them).

ROLL #2

These Rolls were inspired by my Aunt who brought over some really cool Wraps (& some delish Trader Joe’s Almond Butter over on a trip here a few weeks ago)

These wraps are even simpler then the Sushi ones above.

Simply take your favorite Sandwich fillings (here we have Almond butter & Raspberry Jam). And….

You guessed it πŸ™‚

ROLL!!!

Pop these babies into your lunch (or your kids lunch). And away you go! Easy, Simple, Healthy! Add a Banana in there if you’re keen. Or make a salad wrap, Bean wrap, Hummus & Salsa wrap, the possiblilites are Endless!

What are your favorite Rolls to make? Have I inspired you to make anything yummy today?

Remember, It’s still May, & May’s Mantra is:

Everytime u eat it’s an opportunity to make yourself healthier or more ill. What will you Choose?

2 New Yummy Bite~Sized Vegan Healthy Amazing Treats

Since we have made the family decision to stop eating products with eggs in them, I thought that I should stock our fridge with some Yummy Bite~Sized Vegan Healthy Amazing Treats. So far I’ve made 2 different Yummy Bite~Sized Vegan Healthy Amazing Treats, but I’ll keep them coming if you find them a good addition to your fridge.
Black~Bean Brownie Bites

1 can Black Beans

3/4 Cup Vegan Chocolate Chips

2Tbsp Maple Syrup

Blend the ingredients together in your Ninja (or blender) & then scoop into mini~cupcake holders!

*the Chocolate chips stayed a little crunchy which was a really nice surprise!

I put these in the Fridge & they have kept well so far!

Banana Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunchy Bites

1 Cup Crunchy Peanut Butter

2Tbsp Coconut Oil

1 Cup Vegan Chocolate Chips

1 1/2 Banana’s

1tsp Vanilla

Blend the ingredients together in your Ninja (or blender) & then scoop into mini~cupcake holders!


Here is a photo of both of them. I’ve also made the Black Bean Brownies with Black Soy Beans & they had a slight Coffee taste to them. Great!

You can add Maca powder, Cacao powder, Spiralina powder or anything else if you want to bump up the Healthy πŸ˜‰

What are your go~to Vegan Treats? Care to share? πŸ˜‰

Quick Mini~Muffins (& they’re healthy to boot)!

Since my mini~detox has been over I’ve had a mini craving, not a craving for sugar (like pop or candy), but definitely a craving for something sweet. I consider things like Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Pears or Apples to be Healthy Sweet Treats. I scoured the web for some sort of Healthy Cookie/MuffinΒ  kind of recipe & finally took a bit of this recipe & a bit of this one, as well as substituting some ingredients I was missing for ones I had.Β  Let’s see if I can put~down what I did πŸ˜‰

I started with a big bowl & mixed together:

1 3/4 cups of ChickPea Flour

1/2 Cup Unpacked Brown Sugar

1 tsp Baking Powder

1 1/3 cups of a mixture of Sunflower & Pumpkin Seeds

2 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Nutmeg

1 tsp Salt

I also mixed together these in a bowl & let it sit for a while:

1 Banana mashed

Chia~Egg (1TBSp Chia with 2 TBSp Warm Water)

1 1/4 cup of Vanilla Rice Milk

As I was mixing all of these together I was also heating over Low heat:
1 Chopped Apple

1 Grated Pear

1/4 cup Maple Syrup

When all my mixing was done I realized that the cookies I thought I was be making just wouldn’t work out, they were waaaay tooooo runny.

SO….

I put them in the mini cupcake holders & baked them like that instead!

350*F for aprox 8-10 minutes

When you’re trying to get muffins out of the Tins & they’re piping hot ~ try using a chop~stick…

Then let them cool, & enjoy!!

*remember, these are mini~muffins, so you can totally enjoy 3 or 4 at a time!!!

 

Chia~ also know as one of Natures super food, is rightly named! It is gluten-free, rich in Omega 3, high in Protein (complete Protein no less) & both insoluble & soluble Fiber, an amazing Anti~Oxidant & will fuel your body with sustainable Energy!

Pumpkin Seeds~ These delish Green seeds are really high in Iron, Zinc & Phorsphorus. Pretty high in Protein & a wonderful source of Fiber, a handful a day is extremely beneficial!

Sunflower Seeds~ These tiny wonder seeds are full of B Vitamins, Iron, Zinc, & Vitamin E! Try to buy them Raw as the Roasted ones tend to be rancid by the time you get them.
