Wraps and tacos

photo 2Eating Food should be easy and nothing is easier in the plant-based food then a wrap, burrito or taco. Basically if you are using the small corn tortillas double up, this is how they are served by Mexicans so this has to be the correct way. For non flour, wheat or corn use lettuces or red cabbage or kale. The red cabbage wrap above is filled with sweet peppers, quinoa and cilantro with a bit of Cholula hot sauce and avocado. The tacos are mushroom, onion, bell pepper and a chocolate mole sauce. To bring out more flavor keep hot sauce on hand, sea salt, amino acids and nutritional yeast. Burritos without cheese was a bummer at first but then I started eating burritos with sautéed spinach and mushrooms and that gave me a nice flavor and texture that brought the rest of the items together. The only wrong way to make this stuff is to not add enough stuff. If you can hold it with your thumb and pinky finger you have failed, add more plants and enjoy.

Nude breeze on the beach or Coconut Mango banana smoothie (V)

 

If blenders existed on the night of the last supper Jesus would have requested this beauty. I considered calling it Breast milk of angels or ice bath in the tropics but stuck with nude breeze on the beach. When you take your first sip regardless of being on a tropic island or not you will feel the warm sun on your skin and smell the tropic fruit as a cool breeze cools your bare skin. There are a few ways to make it I will write out the recipe and put the alternative items in parenthesis.
