Detox Kale Wraps!

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:

-Olive oil

-Lemon juice (2 lemons)

-Shallot (1)

-Salt, pepper and sugar

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)

-Feta

 

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 🙂
