Lettuce Wraps and Hot Chocolate!

Morning guys!!  Hope your weekend was fantastic!
I didn’t get up to too much this weekend, but I did make 2 yummy recipes I thought you might ENJOY!

First off it’s rainy and windy here, I decided to stay home all day in my PJs,  do some reading, and studying… I also decided hot chocolate was just the remedy to such a day. 

Now since I hadn’t had my green smoothie yet, I decided to make my hot chocolate with amazing grass and these other culprits
I blended it all together in my magic bullet and popped it into the microwave.  It was to die for and full of tons of goodness!

Bad news though – it’s official, amazing meal DOES NOT like my stomach – or the other way around. 
Oh well… it tasted amazing!  Guess I’ll have to try something else next time!

Then I got creative for dinner. 
I have been craving lettuce wraps since we were in Victoria
So I decided to make them – with a few healthy twists of course!

I cooked up some tofu, veggies, cilantro, hosin sauce and chinese 5 spice!
Rather than using tradition iceberg lettuce which has virtually no nutritional value – I opted for Radicchio!
I filled it with the tofu mixture

and added some hummus!  This was my first time buying this kind and it’s fantastic!
And I served the lettuce wraps with roasted sweet potatoe, which I popped in the oven with some cinnamon, salt and curry powder.
All together now!
I ended up adding the sweet potatoes into the wrap, as they were missing something!!

I think next time I will use ground turkey, as I wasn’t a huge fan of the tofu!!  But other than that it was good!!

All that mixed with this…
and this
Made for a pretty OK Sunday!

Blog traffic was super slow this weekend, so if you didn't’ get a chance to read yesterdays posts, HERE THEY ARE!!

  1. Those wraps look wonderful! Amazing Grass upsets my stomach too - such a bummer because it tastes yummy.

  2. Uggggggg! As soon as I read the title of your post in my google reader, I was like "Noooo!" I just went to the store about 30 minutes ago on my lunchbreak. One thing I really wanted to buy was hot chocolate mix, and I totally forgot! Grrrr!

  3. That sucks about the Amazing Grass, especially since you have such a big container of it and that stuff is NOT cheap :(

    The radicchio wasn't too bitter?
