Chickpea Avocado Lettuce Wraps

2017-08-11T22:01:32+00:00 August 11th, 2017|Food & Drink, Friday Recipe, Wrap|

We are always on the lookout for a tasty, lunch that is vegan and high in protein and fiber.  These Chickpea Avocado Lettuce Wraps from shelikesfood.com were perfect and yummy too! They had a slight tart flavor and the avocado helped everything stick together well.  It’s easy to make and the filling can also be used as a sandwich with bread or on rice cakes. It travels well, without getting soggy, and makes a great lunch for a picnic too! Health benefits of chickpeas: Chickpeas, like other legumes, have always been touted for their high fiber content. However, there has been research indicating that fiber from chickpeas had better health benefits than other sources of dietary fiber, including better blood fat regulation, specifically showing lower levels of LDL-cholesterol, total cholesterol, and triglycerides. Chickpeas contain about 12.5 grams of fiber per cup, which is 50% of the Daily Value!   Chickpea Avocado Lettuce Wraps We didn’t have jalapeños and we added tomatoes, but we will definitely try this with jalapeños next time! INGREDIENTS 1 large avocado, removed from skin and diced Juice of 1 lime 1 (15 ounce) can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon cumin 2 tablespoons chopped onion, white or red 2 tablespoons chopped […]

This creamy green popsicle is packed with healthy ingredients to keep the skin hydrated, smooth, and beautiful. The best foods for the skin are high in water content to keep the skin hydrated, and high in antioxidants and vitamins to bring the best out of your skin. Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients in this creamy green popsicle. Avocados are a certified super food, containing essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and amino acids. They are known to increase the absorption of important nutrients such as beta-carotene, alpha-carotene, and lutein. The D-manno-heptulose sugar found in avocados helps improve the production of collagen, which is crucial to keeping the skin healthy and young. Coconut water is packed with fluids and electrolytes that not only keep you hydrated, but your skin as well. Hydrated skin is healthy, glowing skin. Lime, like all citrus fruits are know for their beneficial effects on the skin. Lime helps rejuvenate your skin and protects it from infections, thanks to its antioxidant, disinfectant and antibiotic properties. Kiwi is jam-packed with tiny, black seeds that contain the high levels of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, that is responsible for improving the moisture and elasticity of skin. Creamy Green Popsicles Ingredients: 2 Avocados ½ Banana Juice of 1-2 […]

Today seemed like a good day to post our green pudding recipe. We've been loving chia seeds lately and wanted to experiment with a chia seed dessert. This started out as a smoothie, but ended up more like a pudding, which was a nice surprise. The avocado gives a creamy almost whipped consistency, while the chia [...]
