Garden Spinach Herb Wraps

I was in charge of lunch for the fam yesterday! Here's a glimpse! 

{Garden spinach herb wraps with orange slices}

The recipe: Spread your favorite salad dress onto a spinach wrap (I used vidalia onion), pile high with lettuce, broccoli, avocado, sprouts, tomatoes and anything else you want! Roll up and eat. Loved it!

And, this is what my sweet sister made along side:

{Homemade honey mustard dressing. Colored with turmeric-- no dye in this! I'll be posting the recipe later on}


My workout today was fun. I ran 2 miles, did a 20min FIRM workout, a few minutes of upper body weight lifting and a 15 min stretching session. That's it! Left me feeling invigorated, along with my green smoothie :) Speaking of which, we are now on Day 2 of 7 for the Green Smoothie Challenge!  I worked off this recipe as a base for my breakfast. It's my old faithful, and I needed something quick and easy this morning.

Coming up tomorrow is a green chocolate raspberry smoothie! Can't wait to try this new recipe! It sounds amazing. Remember, your smoothie doesn't have to be the color green to have greens in it. There are definitely ways to hide those nutritious leaves and make it pretty. Have fun and be creative!


How about you, did you go green today? 
I would love to see your smoothies recipes! Please comment and share with the rest of us!

All that food made me hungry! I haven't had a smoothie today, but yesterday I blended together unsweetened almond milk, frozen spinach, and blueberries and cream protein powder.... so delicious and it kept me full for hours!

Sounds delicious! I'll have to give the cream protein powder a try :)

Yay! I am doing the green smoothie challenge too! So fun. Always bananas, apples, and spinach for me, but today I got a green smoothie from whole foods (because I was too busy to make my own!) and it had kale, celery, lemon, and apple. Very yummy. I'm going to try to post about it later tonight! Oh, and your blog is beautiful! I will be following :)
