“For years I have craved sugary foods, but didn’t know why. When I saw the local community center was offering a program on Stressed Out Bodies; Cravings, What Are These About I was intrigued to learn more. Michelle Sanderbeck's presentation helped me to understand why my body was craving certain foods and how to give my body the food and nutrients it needs so that I won’t crave the foods that I know that are not good for my health.” Andrew S.

Kiwi Wraps or rolls

These yummy rolls make a healthy lunch or as a appetizer. The fusion of flavor makes for a party in the mouth!

1 whole wheat tortilla
1 Tbsp. peanut butter ( or any nut butter… my favorite is Cashew butter)
1 Tbsp cream cheese ( I like the whipped cream cheese)
½ kiwi, peeled and thinly sliced

 

Cut rounded edges from tortilla to form a square. Spread nut butter on one half of the tortilla; spread cream cheese on the remaining half.

Please kiwi in a single layer over cream cheese. Starting with the cream cheese end, gently roll up the tortilla to form a log shape. Serve as a wrap or sliced in thick rounds.
