Tortilla Addict

I love meals that involve tortillas!  Wraps, fajitas, quesadillas, breakfast burritos, you name it.  I used to eat a ham and cheese quesadilla every day as my after-school snack.  I took it to the next step during college, tortillas were my one staple food - I would even eat PB&J on my tortillas.

Fortunately, I've grown past my tortilla addiction.  But sometimes, you just have to revert back to an old favorite, or give it a new twist.

This combination of flavors and textures is definitely worth repeating!  Can you believe I pulled off another vegetarian meal without any complaints?

Mushroom & Asparagus Wrap

In a skillet, sautee mushrooms, onions and garlic.

In another skillet, sautee asparagus, sliced tomatoes, garlic and sprinkle with veggie seasonings.

Prepare your tortillas with a layer of avocado and a handful of shredded cheese.

Next, simply pile on the asparagus and tomatoes, followed by the mushrooms and onions!

Wrap it up, or eat it like a taco, however you prefer!

Don't forget dessert! I had a serving of vanilla yogurt, topped with blueberries, blackberries, crumbled graham crackers, and peanuts!

Did you notice anything missing in my dessert?  That's right - chocolate.  No, I didn't go all day without my chocolate fix - I actually had an Attune bar for a snack earlier and it satisfied my daily craving!

These are probiotic bars.  Most everyone has heard of antibiotics, whose job is to kill bad bacteria.  A probiotic is basically the exact opposite of antibiotics - it is a dose of live microorganisms that are healthy for your digestive and immune systems.  Attune bars have a very reasonable amount of calories, 3-4g of fiber, and are obviously great sources of probiotics and calcium!  There's also only a few grams of sugar!

Of course, don't expect it to taste like a hunk of Dove chocolate (my favorite).  My personal opinion of the Attune bar is that it tastes healthy and chocolatey, too.  If you consider the health benefits, this is a great option to consider when you're craving a snack.

What's your favorite meal that involves a tortilla?
My favorite is probably fajitas!  Or, ya know I could just eat the tortilla all by itself!


  1. i miss graham crackers so much!!! arent they delicious!! <3 are there wheat free graham crackers out there.. i hope so!

    my fav tortilla is an egg and kale one with mustard and red onion. really simple a fast! :)

    oh but i just remembered how yummy almond butter and banana is inside a tortilla too!

  2. The mushroom and asparagus wrap looks delicious. We often do vegan burritos with home made chipotle sauce, brown rice, refried beans, pico de gallo & more...
