Down to business: I think that bowls and wraps are one of the easiest things to adapt to being plant based. And they are so yummy and quick to throw together. I work full time so usually I don't feel like a big cooking extravaganza on weeknights. The weekends are another story, however.
Tonight's wrap was a Mediterranean version...it was tasty, filling and chock full of plant-strong goodness.
Prep time: 5-10 minutes (depending if you have leftover baked tofu!)
1 whole wheat tortilla
1-2 Tbsp hummus
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1 Tbsp chopped olives
1/2 avocado, sliced and chopped
1/4 cup red cabbage, shredded
1/4 cup baked tofu cubes
1 handful basil leaves
Balsamic glaze, healthy drizzle (I get this from Trader Joe's and it is a staple in my pantry!)
Ready, set, go!
1. Lay tortilla on plate and spread on hummus
2. Add veggies, tofu and drizzle with balsamic glaze
3. Roll and devour!

Today's recap of meals/snacks:
Breakfast: Slice of whole wheat toast with peanut butter and banana. Amazing!
Lunch: Rice and beans with tons of veggies, spinach and corn salsa.
Afternoon snack: I had a huge cup of herbal tea when I got back from my lunch break. It was so cold outside! Also a Fuji apple.
Dinner: Mediterranean wrap and steamed kale. And a couple spoonfuls of pomegranate seeds for dessert!
Small victory: No caffeine today! Nothing, zip, zilch.
Uh-oh: Actually I think I had a fairly great day today! Plus, I'm learning the less I focus on my mistakes, the better. Life is about forward steps. We all have days/moments where we take some steps backwards. But if we've got momentum in the right direction, that's what counts!
