A wise person once told me that the more colorful the food is that fills your plate and your mouth, the more likely it is that you’re making healthy food choices. That’s why I always eat my ice cream sundaes with sprinkles and my cake with funfetti frosting.
There is actually a diet called, “The Color Diet,” where your main goal is to eat enough colorful foods that your dinner plate looks a watercolor pallet in a rainstorm.
I had this moment of panic a week before I completed my first sprint triathlon this summer, where I felt that regardless of any training I did, I wouldn’t be able to complete the race unless I did one week of super healthy eating. You know, because one week makes all the difference.
Wanna know what I got out of it? A rediscovered love for fruits and veggies like this kute lil pup. I don’t remember for certain, but I’m sure I had a lot more energy. I was probably a lot more regular, too, thanks fiber, and I felt like a health food superhero badass extraordinaire. Not to mention, my Instagram food porn posts were on point and raking in the likes. I remember that part for certain.
Have you ever imagined a day where you’d eat a salad, a sandwich and a burrito in one bite? Maybe not, but since you read that question, you’re probably flirting with the idea of it.
Here’s a list of the food items you will need to make the most perfect salandwichrito™:
- a head of iceberg lettuce
- deli style oven roasted turkey breast (or any other meat you’d prefer)
- red onion
- red, green and/or yellow peppers
- hummus (I prefer the mediterranean kind without the nasty olive junk)
- other veggies
- other sauces
Ingredients 2-10 are all optional. You really do need the iceberg lettuce though. I mean, if that’s all you went with, you’d probably be pretty disappointed in the outcome but I’m not a cop, you do what you want.
I’ve found that using two layers of the lettuce head make for optimal salandwichrito™ wrapping. From there, you plop your meat. You plop your nicely chopped up veggies. You plop your yummus. You plop anything else in there you wanna plop. And there it is. Your very own salandwichrito™.
This things fresh. This things good. This thing could make Freshii go out of business. I swear, if they read this and steal the word salandwichrito™, I’m gonna show up at each of their storefront windows and moon ’em all.
A list of things you’re going to like about this wrap:
- Super healthy
- Colorful AF
- The picture you will take of it prior to devouring will get you lotso likes on Instagram if you use more hashtags than you do ingredients.
Warning: It does take a while to cut everything up just right, but it would take you longer to decide what to order from GrubHub, then order it, then wait for it to be delivered. You could make and eat 3 in that amount of time for the cost of the delivery fee.
Alright, that’s all I have to say. Super specific and refined recipe just for you. If you do try it, let me know. I wanna see snaps. I wanna see pics. I want selfies. If you don’t try it, let me know, too. I wanna see puppies instead. Or really any kute animals.
Here is a poo-related comic to end this post, as I’ve ended all posts:
