Perfect for lunch or dinner, this healthy wrap is packed with protein and fiber. Coupled with the fact these only take minutes to make, it is a quick and healthy option for any busy day. I substituted kale for traditional romaine for a boost of vitamin A, iron, calcium, B vitamins and antioxidants. I also added some grated parmesan for flavor and ground flaxseed for the omega 3s.

When you're invited to a dinner party, you may not expect to be doing the cooking yourself, but that's exactly what I did last weekend. At a recent gathering of friends, I was surprised to see that we actually made our dinner and then sat down to eat it. Organized by a dear friend of mine, Parties That Cook came to his house and set up work stations, gave us recipes, showed us some chef tips, and let us take the lead. After we cooked our dishes, we went to another room and drank cocktails while the professional chefs turned the cooking area into a fabulous dining room complete with candlelit place settings.
While I would have loved to make the delicious dessert, I was actually pleased to be on "team kale," as I picked up a new healthy recipe that I can share with you!
It's hard to imagine that so many leafy greens can withstand the cold temperatures of Winter, but they somehow manage. Greens like kale, chard, spinach, arugula, and bok choy are abundant right now, which is a big win. These veggies are good for you and so versatile: they work in soups, salads, curries, and on their own. Keep reading to find out which Winter greens recipes we'll be making this season.
