If you’ve never used collard green leaves as a wrap for your sandwiches, let this recipe be your inspiration. Rolled up like a burrito, these wraps give your sandwich a boost of nutrients, a crunchy and refreshing texture, and a low-carb, gluten-free way to enjoy a meal.

I love curried chickpeas, because they have an egg salad or chicken salad like consistency without the dairy. They’re packed with protein, vitamins, and I always have a can of chickpeas in my pantry and a tub of tahini, so it’s easy to whip up. The chickpeas are mashed and mixed with basic pantry and fridge ingredients and topped with spiralized veggies, avocado, and wrapped up in the collard green leaf.

These sandwiches are easy to make and work well also stuffed in between your favorite bread slices – I love using a hearty multigrain bread with some hummus and greens (like a spinach or spring mix) and enjoying it that way.

The curried chickpeas save in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, but are best enjoyed fresh! Top with some spiralized cabbage, maybe some alfalfa sprouts – whatever you’re in the mood for!

If you can’t find carrots large enough to spiralize, just use a vegetable peeler or julienne peeler. Choose your own adventure!

You have "named" all the types of noodles that your Inspiralizer can make: ribbons, fettuccine, linguine, and spaghetti. It would be nice if you could include that in your recipes for those of us who have the original spiralizer that you recommended, and not yours. It seems it would be simple enough to say: 1 large red bell pepper, Blade A (ribbons), noodles trimmed. I hope you will consider this. Thank you.

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
