Simply top your favorite tortilla or wrap with a layer of spinach, then add diced tomatoes and diced Persian cucumbers (smaller than the cucumbers you are used to and seedless). Then layer in avocado slices and sprouts (I used bean sprouts) and drizzle with ranch dressing.

Fold the top and bottom, then fold the sides. Wrap in parchment paper and then cut in half when lunchtime rolls around. That’s it!

Now, Let’s Talk Ranch Dressing:

Who doesn’t love ranch dressing on a salad or for dipping? Unfortunately most store bought brands are loaded with crap artificial colors, flavors, fillers, preservatives etc…we can’t put that into our bodies! I have a homemade version that is delicious and can be made quickly. The creamy texture comes from soaked cashews blended with water. If you eat dairy, you can use straight up buttermilk. Either way, this ranch is totally ‘dip worthy’! That said, if you prefer to use a store bought ranch there are healthy options: I love Tessemae’s or Primal Kitchen’s Ranch Dressing and Primal Kitchen’s Ranch Dressing’s, both are Paleo and Whole 30 approved.

Let’s Talk Wraps…Gluten and Grain Free are Both Options!

So when it comes to what to wrap all this goodness in, you have lot’s of options! Traditional tortillas work great, but so do spinach and sun dried tomato tortillas. And if you live gluten or grain free many stores now sell fantastic gluten and grain free choices. They can usually be found in the refrigerated section right by the fresh tortillas!

To see last week’s five minute wrap, click! After dicing tomatoes set them on a paper towel while you dice cucumbers. This will allow  extra juices to be absorbed so your wrap won’t get soggy.
