The best thing I can do for myself, I think, is take a break in the middle of the day. Lunch forces me to do this. So I like to make my lunch fun, if possible, light, but filling enough to hold me over ’til dinner.
That’s why I like these carrot pinwheels. They’re cute. They’re healthy. And they’re easy to throw together–even in your office kitchen. Just throw the ingredients in your lunch bag and prepare on site.
-1 whole-grain tortilla
-3 oz. grated carrots
-1-2 T vegan cream cheese
-1-2 T raisins
-Lay out tortilla. Spread on cream cheese.
-Sprinkle on carrots and raisins.
-Tightly roll the tortilla and then slice into pinwheels.
Looks like sushi, right? Like I said, easy, fun, and different. It’s a small change for lunch, but mixing it up always makes a big difference.
