IT’S A WRAP #TORTILLA SCRAMBLED WRAPS

Trying my utmost best to maintain a fine balance. Thus, for breakfast, I went the whole grain route. I did so by employing the aid of Mexican tortilla wraps. These wraps are loaded with about 9 grams of fiber which was music to my ears as I like to incorporate as much fiber in my daily meal plan. Fiber keeps me satisfied for an extended period.

Wraps were warmed on both sides in a hot skillet just enough to maintain easy folding. They were then lightly buttered (optional) on the filler side. Wraps were filled same with:

COLON HAPPY DRINK ##CUCUMBER JUICE

It doesn’t take much for yours truly to celebrate. There’s no need to wait for once per year. For me, every day is a celebration. So, what did I do? I fetched two of my champagne chutes and went to town. By the way, these two are gifts from a good mate. Seems like we’re always in a celebratory mood. Thanks to her……yeah!!

Had a couple of medium-sized  cucumbers.  But, I know their shelf lives are very low. Can’t afford to let them go to waste. Never felt like having them in a garden salad or pickling them. So, yours truly opted to chop them up and make a refreshing cucumber juice.

  3. Chopped cucumbers in sizable pieces to accommodate blender (standing).
  4. Used my knife to mince ginger.
  5. Added water, juice of lemon and all the other ingredients in blender and pureed same to a smooth finish. (I made sure to further liquefy honey with a little boiling water)

Guys, I served my  cucumber juice in my champagne chutes. I had both chutes (just minutes to chug down). It was refreshing and quite tasty.  I knew for sure that I started my day just right. I’m over the moon knowing that I had incorporated great fibers and other beneficial nutrients to my body. Salud!!
