A few weeks ago my refrigerator stopped working, so I have become very creative in the kitchen lately. (Luckily I had a queue of recipes for this blog ready to go!) My fridge has been broken since two Sundays ago! I’m sure it goes without saying that I am beyond thrilled to have the repair person come out today to fix the compressor!
Since I had to throw out most of the food in the fridge, eating healthy has been challenging. Let’s just say the people working at the Whole Food salad/hot bar have gotten to know me quite well! Fortunately, I was able to salvage a few ingredients from the fridge meltdown, pun intended. All of my nut butters, grains, and fruits/vegetables survived.
Back in my unhealthy days, my best friends and I would snack on a warm flour tortilla covered in mayonnaise… yes mayonnaise!!! I cringe thinking about it. Since I had tortillas and nut butter on hand, I went out to create a healthy version of my previous unhealthy snack. That’s when I created the Breakfast Rollups.
I started with organic sprouted grain tortillas…
Then I added peanut butter, sliced strawberries & bananas, and flax seed.
Sidebar: I love Trader Joe’s flax seed with blueberries.
Then I wrapped it up and microwaved it for 15 seconds.
The results were ooey gooey goodness. I ended up making many varieties over Fridge Meltdown. (I may have named this period of time!)
Almond Butter, Blueberry, Banana, Flax Seed Breakfast Rollup
Avocado, Egg, Nutritional Yeast Breakfast Rollup
Cocoa Almond Butter, Raspberry, Chia Seed Breakfast Rollup
This stuff is so delicious yet addicting…
Peanut Butter, Raisins, Cinnamon Breakfast Rollup
My friend, Hosanna, gave me some homemade raisins that were plump and delicious. I ate half the bag before they even touched the Breakfast Rollup, which has me thinking I need a food dehydrator.
What are your favorite dehydrated foods? If you have a food dehydrator, what creative ways have you used it?
