Easy, tasty and healthy. What’s not to love about these Veggie Hummus Wraps?
I’ve been really tired lately. And it’s not because of baby Robbie. Well, his 5:30am wake up calls don’t exactly help… But I’m tired because of our dogs. Anyone who knows us knows that we love our two pups. They are like kids to us. All things considered, they’ve adjusted decently well to the arrival of a squirmy two-legged baby in the house.
Max has been with me since right after college. He’s followed me to Louisiana then Georgia and now upstate New York. He’s sat with me for endless hours of thesis and dissertation writing. He’s a trooper. But he’s also a bed hog.
Now I know some people will say that you should never let your dogs sleep in bed with you. Yeah right. Have you met our dogs? Max loves to lay at the end of the bed between me and Laura. But lately, he’s been a little hog.
I wake up with one leg off the bed and the other contorted in a position that you would swear is not physically possible. But I still love the little guy. I try my best not to shove him or inadvertently kick him in the face in the middle of the night. He’s a great dog, and I’ll happily let him snore away at the end of the bed. Even if it means I’m a little bit tired on some days.
Ethel, our other pup, is also a bed hog, but in an entirely different way. She’s a 10-pound chihuahua mix (rescue), and her favorite thing in the whole world is getting under the covers. She dives under the covers and then peeks her nose out. Yes, that means she technically tucks herself in at night.
But here’s the thing. Ethel is a little space heater on 4 legs. Some nights I swear she radiates more heat than the sun. And she loves to be touching your back while you sleep. Again, she means nothing but the best. But between Max and Ethel, we often wake up overheated and falling off the bed.
Speaking of chihuahuas, my friend posted this photo on Facebook a few weeks back. Given my love of all things food (and especially blueberry muffins), I found this one quite amusing. There is a surprising similarity between chihuahuas and blueberry muffins. You can clearly tell which pics are dogs and which pics are muffins, but it’s enough to stop and make you laugh.
Shifting gears a bit, let’s talk about lunch. While I do work from home, I still don’t like spending a lot of time fussing over lunch. I like something easy and quick. Last week, I had a craving for hummus. And I’m not one to fight my food cravings. So I grabbed some hummus and veggies from the store, and then it hit me. Instead of dipping the veggies, why not turn the whole thing into a delicious wrap. Done!
I grabbed a pack of Flatout’s Red Pepper Hummus wraps and got to work. (Yes, I appreciated the fact that I used hummus wraps to make these Veggie Hummus Wraps. Flatout also has Sundried Tomato wraps and Garden Spinach wraps. Both of which would be excellent choices for these veggie wraps!) After a couple minutes of veggie chopping and hummus spreading, I was looking at one delicious lunch. These Veggie Hummus Wraps were epic, y’all. They’re quick, tasty and healthy. What’s not to love there? Oh, and the wraps come from Flatout’s Protein Up, Carb Down line. Each flatbread brings 12g of protein and only 9g of net carbs. Score!
If you have dogs, do you let them sleep on the bed?
What is your go-to lunch menu? Can you roll it into a wrap?
