Sometimes it is easier to prepare a delicious and healthy meal than we think. Many times I find myself discouraged to make something nourishing & healthy at home for fear that it will take too much time. When the fact of the matter is, as soon as we put that fear to the side we start creating wonderfully delicious things.

What’s on the menu for todays lunch & takes less then 10 minutes to prepare?

In my fridge months ago a friend & I made an amazing Kimchi. We made a gallon jar of it, so I am just now getting to the last of it. Earlier this week I went to a friends house to drop off some medicinal item’s & she gifted me with the most delicious tangelos from her backyard! After spending the morning out of the house, running errand and forgetting breakfast, I came home & wanted to create quick nourishing meal, that was warm, satisfying & flavorful. That’s when I looked through the fridge & realized I had all that I needed to create this lovely meal depicted above.

Organic Ingredients:

1 Flatout wraps

4 Baby Portables

Handful Purple Kale

Handful Fresh Spinach

1/4 Purple Onion

1 Garlic Clove

Olive oil

Himalayan Salt

Black Pepper freshly ground

1 Glop Jalapeño Artichoke dip from Sprouts

Method:

Heat olive oil in skillet on medium heat. Dice up onion & garlic, place in pan once oil is heated, cover with salt, cook for about 3-5 minutes. Chop up shrooms, kale & spinach, toss in pan, cover with salt & pepper. Cook for about 1-2 minutes. Spread Jalapeño Artichoke dip onto wrap, place cooked veggies inside, wrap up tightly & place back in pan. Brown each side lightly, takes about 30-60 seconds per side. Remove from pan, slice & enjoy!

I had forgotten to fill wrap with the Medicinal Kimchi, so I added on the side & scooped on top of wrap as I ate it. Peeled a fresh tangelo & enjoyed!
