Guacamole and Black Bean Wrap

guacamole, black bean, avocado, spinach, wrap, quesadilla

1/2 can black beans

1/4 shredded cheddar or daiya vegan cheese

1 whole grain or gluten free wrap

1 cup roughly chopped spinach

2 tbsp salsa

1/2 avocado mashed

Combine all the ingredients into a wrap and roll up, or if you like you can cook it quesadilla style by folding in half and cooking in a heated skillet.

Turkey Meatballs

turkey meatballs, healthy, sprouted grains

20 oz package of turkey

3 pieces of sprouted grain bread chopped

1/2 onion chopped

1 clove of garlic chopped

1 egg

salt

2 tbsp grape seed oil (or other high smoke point, neutral tasting oil.)

1. Mix all your ingredients, easiest with a food processor but you can also mix the old fashioned way with your hands.

2. Heat your oil in a large skillet.

3. Form small turkey meatballs, they will cook more quickly and thoroughly.

4. Place your meatballs in your skillet and cook until firm, keep an eye on them and turnover once browned-I always test one meatball by cutting it in half.
