White Bean Hummus and Veggie Wrap

White Bean Hummus and Veggie Wraps

I probably should have named January Healthy Sandwich Month.

Why not start now? Welcome to the final installment of Healthy Sandwich Month! We’ve already gotten our omega-3’s with the Lemon Dill Salmon Wrap and eaten everything green and delicious in the Deep Green Sandwich. Now we’re going to keep the protein high and clean out the crisper (do people still call it the crisper? The drawer in the refrigerator? Someone please tell me you know what I’m talking about…) with this white bean hummus and veggie wrap.

Hummus is kind of hit or miss for people, but if it freaks you out I encourage you to give this one a try. It’s made with white beans so it’s even creamier than traditional chickpea hummus, plus I added some herbs and seasonings that make it taste like ranch dressing. So, yeah, you’re basically having a salad drenched in high-protein ranch dressing and wrapping it up in a tasty tortilla.

If you just can’t find it go ahead and chop up your own broccoli and carrots into thin but crunchy strips….

On Monday took a yoga class for the first time in years. It’s crazy how something can seem so easy and so hard at the same time. I mean, yoga is just stretching, right?? (Not right.) My friend Mary from The Kitchen Paper is kind of a yoga expert. Her instagram feed is constantly begging…

Lemon Dill Salmon Wraps - This will be my easy, healthy lunch!

Lemon Dill Salmon Wraps

It feels sooooo cliche to have my first recipe of the year be healthy. Yes we’re all probably coming out of a sugar coma from eating too many white chocolate covered pretzels over the holiday, but maybe we’re not all setting a strict diet for the new year. Maybe we’re just trying to detox a…
