Lettuce Wraps and Chia Seed Pudding Recipes

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I know it has been a stretch since I blogged but have no fear, here I am with a couple more recipes to assist in eating healthy, clean and vegetarian (if that is a goal of yours).
As stated in previous blogs, I am a creature of habit and can eat the same foods day in and day out and be completely content. If it’s delish and healthy, sign me up! As of late, I am addicted to lettuce wraps. Below you will find the ingredients and it’s super simple to make.

Trader Joe’s Ingredients Lettuce Wraps

1 container of Trader Joe’s Healthy and Chopped Veggie Mix
1 container of Trader Joe’s Egg White Salad
Large Romaine Lettuce
2-3 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar
**Optional – Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce (aka Rooster Sauce) and/or Salt-Free Seasoning such as Mrs. Dash

The ingredients listed above last me for two dinners, so this can serve two people or save half for the next evening.

Wash and dry lettuce leaves. Set aside.

Simmer the veggie mix in the balsamic vinegar until they slightly take on the color of the vinegar. Remove from heat and stir in the egg white salad.

Option to add the rooster sauce and/or salt-free seasoning.
Use the lettuce like “chips and dip” or wrap some of the mixture in to the lettuce like “taquitos”.  


Chia Seed Pudding

2 TBSP Chia Seeds **(I order most of my supplements from - see below) 
½ cup of Dairy-Free Milk (Unsweetened Almond Milk, Coconut Milk, Soy Milk, Flax Milk, etc.)
Sweetener of Choice (Stevia)
Combine all ingredients in leak-proof jar. Shake for approximately 30 seconds and place in refrigerator.  You can let the pudding sit in the fridge anywhere from 10 minutes to 48 hours. Any longer than that and the seeds go rancid. Trust me, firsthand experience.
I use this as a yogurt replacement on top of my veggie cakes sometimes. It’s delish! Some people think it looks ALIVE, but don’t knock it ‘til you try it.
