Greek Collard Wraps!


Tzatziki Sauce

  • 1 cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2.5 ounces cucumber, seeded and grated (¼-whole)
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill
  • Salt and pepper to taste

The Wrap

  • 4 large collard green leaves, washed
  • 1 medium cucumber, julienned
  • ½ medium red bell pepper, julienned
  • ½ cup purple onion, diced
  • 8 whole kalamata olives, halved
  • ½ block feta, cut into 4 (1-inch thick) strips (4-oz)
  • 4 large cherry tomatoes, halved

Next, Prepare the Meal:

1. Mix all of the ingredients for the tzatziki sauce together and also store in the fridge. Be sure to squeeze all of the water out of the cucumber after you grate it.


2. Prepare collard green wraps by washing leaves well and trimming the fibrous stem from each leaf.


3. Spread 2 tablespoons of tzatziki onto the center of each wrap and smooth the sauce out.


4. Layer the cucumber, pepper, onion, olives, feta and tomatoes in the center of the wrap. I’ve shown them spread out in a line to display each ingredient, but when assembling these wraps it works best to keep all of the ingredients close and toward the center of the leaf. Imagine piling them high rather than spreading them out!


5. Fold as you would a burrito, folding in each side toward the center and the folding the rounded end over the filling and roll.


6. Slice in halves and serve with any leftover tzatziki or wrap in plastic for a quick lunchtime meal!


This makes a total of 4 wraps, 1 per serving. Each serving comes out to be 165.34 Calories, 11.25 g Fat, 7.36g Net Carbs, and 6.98g Protein.


Dark Chocolate + Cranberry Nut Mix!


This is SUPER simple, and one of my favorite snacks. Of course, be sure to eat in moderation because the dried fruit carry a good dose of sugar, and the nuts + seeds pack in tons of protein and healthy fats!


Ingredients:

  • Whole Lightly Salted Cashews
  • Whole Lightly Salted Almonds
  • Dried Fruit (cranberries, cherries + blueberries are my family's personal favorites)
  • Dark Chocolate Chips OR Crumbled Dark Chocolate Bar (you can find this in the Baking Isle at your grocery store)
  • Shredded (no sugar added) coconut
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • (unshelled) Sunflower Seeds

Next, Prepare the Snack:
Simply toss all of the ingredients together and store in a closed container or baggy!

Voila! Now, you've got a snack that will help kill that sweet tooth (or even that salt tooth) without giving your body processed "foods" & poor nutrition that may have fulfilled this craving in past-times!
