I’ve recently discovered not only how to make spring rolls, but how delicious they are. I always thought they looked so complicated, but I’m so glad I realized that they really aren’t difficult to make at all and make a perfect meal. For this recipe, I’m not only going to give you a recipe, but walk you through exactly how to make them! I’m also throwing in a yummy peanut sauce that you can dip the spring rolls in.
- Spring roll wrappers / rice paper (found at most grocery stores in the international section, at an Asian market, or online)
- Carrots: thinly sliced
- Cabbage: thinly sliced
- Cucumber: thinly sliced
- 1 avocado

It’s hot outside! Sweltering hot weather calls for cold drinks, especially milkshakes! I love any drink that is smooth, cold, & creamy and milkshakes are one of my favorite treats to have when it’s hot outside. This recipe is a delicious chocolate strawberry flavored milkshake and it definitely doesn’t have to be for dessert, because it’s filled with tons of nutrients and is good for you!
One ingredient in this milkshake that I’ve recently discovered is a vegan, plant-based supplement powder. I’m usually not a big fan of supplements, especially protein supplements. Protein isn’t something anyone really needs any extra of, most of our diets have plenty of protein without needing to supplement. We really need only about 8-10% of our diet to come from protein,but I’ll talk more about that in a future blog post.
So anyways, I was a little skeptical about this powder, but not only did it have good quality plant-based protein, but it had lots of other beneficial nutrients. It has digestive enzymes, omega-3 (from plants, not fish), minerals, vitamins, prebiotics, and is non-GMO, and is soy-free. It doesn’t have any artificial sweeteners, or colors which is also great. The serving size is 2 scoops, which has 20 g of protein, so I only used one scoop. The taste is great, and it is pretty easy to add a little bit to any type of smoothie or beverage to get in some extra vitamins and minerals, as well as probiotics/digestive enzymes. I picked up mine at CVS but you can check it out on Naturade’s website.

Spinach Veggie Wrap
(Serves: 1 person)
- Spinach & Herbs Tortilla (I used a vegan tortilla by the brand Olé Mexican Foods, but
you can use any type of tortilla)
- 1 handful spinach
- 5-6 slices cucumber
- 2-3 slices tomato
- 1/4 block tempeh (lightly sautéd)
- 1/4 avocado slices
- 1 handful sprouts (I used alfalfa & clover sprouts)
Making wraps are super easy, because they only require chopping up a few veggies, and wrapping them up in a tortilla. They are a great lunch to pack to take on the go.
