Mexican Inspired Collard Breakfast Wraps

Jump to Recipe

Twenty six days into my June Friendly Challenge, and things are going well. Every June, and every November, I generally challenge myself to some kind of health challenge, whether it’s to exercise more, or to abstain from refined sugar, or drink more water. This June, I kicked it up a notch and decided to go PROCESSED-FREE. I was inspired by Dr. Michael Greger’s book, How Not to Die. I have mentioned this book before and I will probably sound like a broken record, but if you haven’t already you definitely need to read this book!! The studies speak for themselves when it comes to eating a whole food plant-based diet.

The dilemma with me is that I LOVE making food. I’m working on balance which is why I like to challenge myself every so often. And one of my challenges within the challenge, is to create healthy meals using unprocessed foods.

This one is for sure a WINNER. Even my husband loved it. The combination of the tofu scramble with the roasted bell peppers and roasted potatoes is SO DELICIOUS. And the best part is I have a ton of collard in my garden right now. Collard wraps are such a great way to incorporate more greens into your diet, while avoiding processed wraps that often contain chemicals and other garbage. Another go-to collard idea is simply peanut butter and bananas! YUM.

This recipe is:

  • healthy
  • oil-free
  • gluten-free
  • delicious
  • flavorful

The nutrients you will get from this dish are abundant. You will get all the goodness from the collard greens, the satisfying and bio-available protein from the tofu, the vitamins from the red pepper, potassium from the potatoes, and SO MUCH MORE. And I promise you, the flavors will not disappoint. Feel free to use a store bought wrap if you want it to be more filling. You could always wrap a store bought (or homemade) wrap around the collard wrap. (That’s a lot of ‘wraps’ in one sentence, i know… ).

Enjoy!!
