Wraps

2 Nori Sheets (supermarkets & healthfood stores)
Romaine lettuce
Hummus
2 Falafels
Grated Salad

 

 

Take a Nori sheet, then layer it with large lettuce leaf and place grated mix in long narrow line as seen in image.  Follow with hummus.  Then split the falafel balls in half and place on top of hummus layer.  Finish with putting another layer of lettuce on top. (this keeps the nori sheet from getting too soggy).  Roll tightly and then cut with a sharp knife in the middle to make two short rolls.


Grated Filler

1/ Make your favourite grated salad.  (I tend to use a large electric chopper because that’s what I have).  This salad mix has the following

1 beetroot
2 Carrots
1 Celery Stalk
½ Red Pepper
1 Clove Garlic

All mixed in the chopper then add finely chopped onion and toasted sunflower seeds.  Garnish with soya (or braggs liquid amino acid), cold pressed oil, & pinch of pink salt.  Leave sit for a while.  Can also chop dilisk finely and mix into this as a replacement for salt.

Nutritional Facts

Seaweeds are genuine Irish superfoods with an abundance of minerals and calcium.  In fact, they are far better source of calcium than milk.  Clinical research shows that dairy products have little or no benefit for bones[i].  Instead leafy greens, beans and seaweeds are far better sources as they provide other partner nutrients to help with uptake.  Dilisk is also rich in iodine, plus iron and zinc as well as being very high in calcium[iii].  

Nori seaweed: One sheet of nori meets 70 percent of the daily value for iodine. Iodine is essential for your metabolism, which helps turn the food you eat into energy.[ii]  Also one sheet meets 10 percent of the daily recommended vit C. It also contains Vitamins B6 and A.

The protein content of this meal is also high with chickpeas being the base for falafels and hummus.  Sesame seed paste is also an ingredient of hummus another superfood very high in calcium.  The combination of ingredients is well met e.g. zinc is necessary for the production of every protein in the body and develops our higher self/intuition.
