BLT Wrap Recipe

It has been forever since I posted a new recipe on the blog, so I am going to try to do it more regularly like I had planned in the beginning, bare with me. The foods/recipes I choose, I choose either because I have made them before, I have tried them before (someone else made it), because they are easy enough for me to make — therefore hopefully easy enough for all of you as well, or because they interest me enough to share with all of you. Typically I get my recipes off of Pinterest, but sometimes they are of my own or family member and/or close friend. 

 

I love wraps, they are simple to make and are very filling depending on the size you make them. Not to mention you can stuff them with whatever your heart deserves, making them as healthy and hearty as you would like or as unhealthy as you please. LOL The world is your oyster when creating a wrap. This particular recipe is the “BLT wrap” — for those of you who don’t know what BLT means: bacon, lettuce, tomato BUT of course there will be added ingredients to make it extra delicious, but feel free to play around the ingredients to your liking. 

 

Ingredients:

 
  • 10 slices of bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (quartered)
  • dash of salt and pepper
  • 2 cups of shredded lettuce
  • 4 burrito sized tortillas
  • 3 oz of cream cheese (softened) 
  • 1 tablespoon mayo
  • 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard 

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine the quartered grape tomatoes with the dash of salt and pepper
  2. Inside a another small bowl, combine the soften cream cheese with mayo and dijon mustard (mix well)
  3. In a large bowl, combine bacon, lettuce and tomato with the sauce
  4. divide the mixture evenly among the 4 tortillas 
  5. Roll the wrap tightly and cut in half on a diagonal 

As said before you may substitute ingredients to your preferences. Enjoy!

Roasted Maple Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes (Recipe)

https://soundcloud.com/shay-lonfitnesswonderwoman-moss-fitness-wonderwoman/thursday-recipe-roasted-maple

Last Saturday I missed the opportunity to share a recipe with all of you, but was able to do one on my podcast last Thursday. This particular recipe, is for anyone who enjoys sweet potatoes, personally, I do not, so I most likely will not give this a try, but my family loves it so I know they make something with similar ingredients during the holiday months. Hopefully this quick recipe will be one you share with the folks. 

 

Ingredients:

 
  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • maple syrup (preferably pure) 2 tbsp
  • cinnamon 1/4 tsp
  • nutmeg 1/4 tsp
  • pepper 1/4 tsp
  • salt 1/2 tsp
  • olive oil 1 1/2 tbsp

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper or tin foil and spray it. (or without use of parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray)
  2. Cut the sweet potatoes in cubed shaped, and place them inside a mixing bowl. Add the olive oil and maple syrup on top of them, then sprinkle the spices, mix together until the sweet potatoes are well covered
  3. Dump onto the cookie sheet and bake them for 15-20 minutes (should be tender and slightly crispy) and you will want to stir the sweet potatoes half way through cooking time.

Enjoy!
