Quinoa & Kale Wrap

July 15, 2015

 Hello My Loves,

The past couple weeks I have been all over the place. Work, gym, driving school, recording , writing and trying to get my Etsy shop on the map. Its not an excuse but I've been stretching myself so thin that my food prep has been suffering for it.

And lets be honest, once you start food prepping your life does change. I love not having to wonder what or where my next meal is coming from. I love the comfort of being able to know everything that is going into my body AND it makes calorie counting a cinch!

I remember as a child going out to eat was always a treat. At my age with my goals in mind its a NIGHTMARE. There's only so much Churassco (Portuguese Chicken) and steamed veggies a girl can eat.

Yesterday I popped into Metro and discovered this wonderful wrap. Quinoa , kale and hummas on a whole wheat wrap. Mmmm Mmmm Good! So naturally the frugal woman who resides in my brain wanted to recreate this delicious wrap on a budget.

Quinoa & Kale Wrap A La JoRita


1/4-1/2 Cup of Quinoa Cooked- If your counting calories use whatever is appropriate to stay within budget! .

2 Tbsp of Hummus - I used the roasted red pepper flavour.

2-3 Leafs of Kale

1 Large Wrap - I went with Whole Wheat.

1/4-1/2 of Tomatoes, Peppers, Cucumbers chopped into cubes

Splash of Lemon Juice & Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper to Taste

  1. In a bowl mix together Quinoa,veggies, salt, pepper, lemon juice and olive oil. 
  2. Spread 2 Tbsp of Hummas onto wrap
  3. Lay Kale leafs down on the hummus.
  4. Spread Quinoa blend over kale
  5. Wrap it up
Enjoy..On nom nom

If you feels its a bit dry you for your liking. Use 1 Tbsp of Hummus to spread on the wrap and the other 1 can be used to mix into the Quinoa blend.
