What’s In My Tortilla Today? Not Deja Vu All Over Again!


2014-01-23 12.53.27


It almost seems like deja vu all over again* sometimes, doesn’t it?  I mean, these tortillas often look the same, but if anyone is really paying attention, they will know they are all different.  I swear, they are!

So without further ado, here is today’s tasty tortilla:

Whole wheat tortilla, homemade garlic sweet potato hummus, onion, romaine lettuce, cucumber, avocado, carrot, raw sunflower seed, black pepper, hot sauce and the (if it’s not famous yet, soon to be famous) Phoney Baloney’s Coconut Bacon.  Hungry yet?  You should be!  I better be too because this tortilla is huge.  Oops!

Healthy Hypocrite Tip:  Did you know that onions fare better (that means, last longer and taste better) if you do not refrigerate them? That is, while they are still whole.  I do refrigerate them when I have a half left over, but not for very long.  I usually buy smaller sized onions if I know I won’t be using the whole onion in a recipe so I don’t have to refrigerate.

* I must credit the great Yogi Berra for this quote.  He also claims, “I didn’t really say everything I said.”


What’s In My Tortilla Today? Vegan Gluten-Free Elvis!


GF Elvis

I know how crazy it sounds.  I never had this Elvis before so I was pleasantly surprised by how much I like it.  I stumbled across a fantastic vegan fake bacon product and I’m in love.  Phoney Baloney’s Coconut Bacon is insanely awesome and  delicious!  It’s made from coconut chips so it’s crunchy and salty and perfect.

Today’s tortilla is a Trader Joe’s Brown Rice Tortilla (gluten-free, as advertised), crunchy peanut butter, coconut bacon and banana.  And that is it.  Easy as can be.  Great for any time of the day morning or night.  Of course, I folded it in half and it was like an Elvis quesadilla (sans cheese).

On the healthy to hypocrite scale, this is a 50/50.  Healthy points for the gluten free tortilla, fresh fruit and peanut butter made from only peanuts.  Hypocrite points for the coconut bacon which has a high sodium content (just don’t eat a ton of it at one time–not easy, but you can do it!).

Healthy Hypocrite Tip:  The best peanut butter is the kind that is made from peanuts and only peanuts.  Organic is best.
