Gluten-Free Spinach Wraps

11205076_10101171757500843_2279475637093721669_nI have never really been a sandwich/wrap girl. Sometimes, however I like an unwich. You know a sandwich wrapped up in lettuce. Last week while dreaming up recipes, I decided I should try a wrap. I had some spare spinach in the fridge, why not toss that in, get some spare veggies in?

What to put with it? Chicken of course comes to mind. How about some more green? Add cucumbers for some freshness. Also there is an avocado in my fridge, let’s make a spread with it. Sounds tasty and good for a little after-work meal before I head out for a walk. It is nice and cold/freezing here in Indiana. The colder weather is paradoxical for me. It fills me with cabin fever, restless energy, and wanderlust. I want to be outside playing and exploring in the snow. Yet I also love to post up in my cozy apartment creating. Painting the huge canvas in my living room. Or working on my cookbook project. Or in my kitchen making up recipes. And so I get my fix on it all. I go for a hike in the snow and come home to warm up in my kitchen! This is a lovely little post-hike feel-good-fill-you-up meal. Plus once you make the wrap, you can fill it however YOU like!!!
