The most delicious thing I've ever eaten.

Okay maybe that's an exaggeration. Certainly the most delicious fajita/wrap I've ever eaten.
Dan and I feasted on these last night and were extremely satisfied. We couldn't have fit meat or cheese on these badboys if we wanted to ;)

As you can see I needed *two* toothpicks to hold it together. It was a mouthful!

The makings:
-Whole Wheat Tortillas (which turned out to contain L-Cysteine Hydrochloride, rendering them unvegan. oh well)
-Spicy Hummus (protein)
-Guacamole (good fats)
-Kale (calcium, iron, protein, vitamin c...the list goes on. kale is a power vegetable!)
-Parsley (vitamin c & a, iron, folate, potassium, calcium... parsley also contains various anti-carcinogenic properties. just sayin')
-Green Onions
-Tomatoes (vitamin c & a, lycopene, an anti-carcinogenic [especially when cooked])
-Carrots (you should know what's in carrots by now)
-Green & Orange bell peppers (mad vitamins, obviously, and a potent cancer-fighter)
-Mushrooms (selenium [good for the fellas], and other stuff, most notably potassium [lowers blood pressure] and riboflavin [an essential b-vitamin])
-Alfalfa Sprouts (This is the ONLY plant that supplies the full range of vitamins, from vitamin A, B complex [even B12], C, E to K. Alfalfa sprouts placed in indirect sun for a couple of days before harvesting, even produce nutritious blood-healing chlorophyll. They also contain calcium, folic acid, magnesium, manganese, molybdenum, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, sodium & zinc. MM!! <3 I loves me some sprouts)
-and lastly, salsa. (another source of lycopene)

I can't wait to make another one <3

bon appetit!

Veggie (or more appropriately Beanie) Sloppy Joes

I threw these together the other night and they were insanely delicious, though VERY sloppy when first made, more like Chili, lol. I just smothered a slice of toast with it, followed by another piece of toast (which I also smothered). Still very tasty, but they were much better in my opinion after the mixture sat in the fridge for a night.

Drain a can of kidney beans and mash them up in a pot. Leave some chunks. You could also use any other bean that has the same texture as kidney beans.
Add a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. Heat up on medium.
Once heated, add spaghetti/tomato sauce of your choice (I used some kind of chunky tomato & basil one), as much as you want, just taste as you go along, but don't make it too liquidy. You could even use Manwich mix and just use as much beans as meat indicated on the can.
Heat it all up.
Add some cumin, chili powder and cayenne, to taste.

Bam. Vegan Sloppy Joes.
I was also going to add a little ketchup but forgot. I think that could be good.


No pictures, unfortunately. And there may not be any until I get a new camera :(
