Summer is here! And with fabulous sunshine and longer weekends ahead, comes pools, beaches, boating and bathing suit season. While I am really, really excited for all the above – I also know I need to maintain a healthy diet during the week so I feel my best when it’s time to put on the bathing suit. So for my DIY recipe this week, I decided to make these healthy detox kale wraps. Super filling, refreshing, tasty and easy to make! Here’s the recipe:
Let’s start with the dressing. What you’ll need:
-Lemon juice (2 lemons)
-Salt, pepper and sugar
Poor 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a bowl. Combine with lemon juice.
Combine with lemon juice.
Mince the shallots and add to the bowl.
Then add a pinch of salt, pepper and sugar. Dressing is done!
For the kale filling:
– Kale (1 bunch)
– Cooked quinoa (1/2 cup)
– Cherry tomatoes, halved (1/2 basket)
-Cucumber sliced and quartered (1/2)
Add your kale to a big bowl.
Pour in the dressing to soften up the kale leaves.
Mix in the tomatoes and cucumber slices.
Mix in the cooled quinoa.
Add a little (or a fair amount) of feta.
Mix it all together and voila! Serve with a low calorie wrap or even in pita pockets. I like to add a little Sriracha to mine for an extra spice. Yumm!!! and healthy 🙂
