You've heard it a million times..breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I concur...breakfast is definitely one of my favorite meals! I don't eat much meat given my 90% Vegan- 10 percent Sinful diet , but every Sunday Jim and I make pancakes (Gluten Free!) slathered in maple syrup, and we dive headfirst into sinful by enjoying 2 pieces each of apple cinnamon bacon that we buy from Whole Foods!


Skinny Sexy Breakfasts-Breakfast Wraps

The rest of the week though? I try to keep it really healthy and wraps like the one shown above are a  really satisfying meal for me. I don't eat gluten as a rule, but these ancient sprouted grain wraps from Engine 2 don't hurt me at all and they make a wonderful container for so many diferent tastes. The wrap shown is very simple; Avocado , Tomato, Red Onion and a bit of shredded vegan rice cheese with some siracha sauce and a teaspoon of my new favorite "Mayonnaise", a wonderful product that I discovered this weekend called Just Mayo! I've tried many vegan mayonnaises and I do like Vegannaise alot, but Just Mayo is soy free which is important to me! It's also absolutely delicious! If I'd had a handful of arulgula I would have added that too. The sky's the limit when it come to yummy fillings! Another favorite is red onion, sliced mango, cilantro, chipotle mayo or "mayo" and a bit of shredded chicken or a vegan substitute. Thats delicious too!

So there you have it...the basic Skinny Sexy Wrap. Try other fillings and see what you like the best and let me know. Tomorrows breakfast wrap will be a vegan Banh Mi, a Vietnamese treat which is possibly  one of the best sandwiches on this earth. They are normally on a baguette and filled with cucumbers and onion, pickled cabbage and daikon radish and flavored tofu or shreds of spicy roasted pork or chicken. The whole thing sits on a bed of spicy mayo and is sprinkled liberally with cilantro. It is divine! Mine will be all of the same ingredients on a wrap instead of the baguette (which I miss dearly but does not miss me!) substituting spicy chinese flavored baked tofu for the pork. This is why I don't miss eating meat all of much. I've learned to make most of my favorite foods vegan and if I can do it so can you. I'm a former junk food queen and trust me, you want my vegan Mr. Hero "Cheesesteak" recipe. You won't easily know the diference and as a matter of fact ,one of my clients almost completely fooled her husband with one! I say almost because halfway through eating it he remarked that he wasn't feeling as full as normal. That's when she told him!

 

Have a wonderful day, my fellow Skinny Sexy Foodies!
