Wraps & Rolls

How often do you worry about the nutrition factor, or lack thereof, in the food you cook and all because your family members don’t like vegetables.. It may seem like a daunting task to manage the nutritional intake of your family members when they eat only 2-3 vegetables but its not that difficult to get them to eat more vegetables especially if they don’t know they are eating them…

There are various foods in which you can hide the vegetables or ensure that its taste is overpowered by the other ingredients so that you don’t realize you are eating a vegetable you don’t like ..

One of my personal favorite food is wraps and rolls … theres so many ways in which you can experiment with it giving you immense opportunities to balance out nutrition with taste…

Here’s a recipe for a tasty wrap with a lot of healthy elements
