So..

Have you ever heard of IIFYM? If not..it stands for “If It Fits Your Macros”.

This includes..ice cream, cookies, cakes, pizza etc. you name it! BUT, haha yes there is a catch. I am not telling you to go out like a crazy person and eat every piece of junk food in site.

Hi guys, so I just wanted to share with you a quick recipe that I made for dinner tonight! It was super easy to prepare and it tastes so0 good! It is very filling thanks to the elzekiel wrap I used to make it. I hope you all try it out and like it as much as I do!

 

Ingredients:

-1 4:9 elzekiel large wrap (could sub a whole wheat wrap)

-1 heaping tablespoon of  sweet potato hummus(or another hummus)*

-1/2 tbsp spicy hummus *** Could substitute one hummus for all of the recipe or use your own combination, this is just what I like!***

-3 slices of red pepper chopped finely

-1/4 of a tomato chopped

-1/4 cup shredded chicken breast (I used canned as it’s quick easy and very moist)

-1 leaf of romaine lettuce chopped

-1/4 of an avocado chopped

-1/4 tsp chili pepper flakes

-1/8 tsp pepper to taste

-1 tbsp 0% plain greek yogurt

optional for extra spice: 1 dash of cayenne pepper

 

Directions: Spread the sweet potato hummus down the center of the wrap. Sprinkle with chopped red pepper, tomato and lettuce. Meanwhile with a fork, mix together your chicken and 1/2 tbsp spicy hummus. Then place the chicken mixture on top of the other ingredients in the wrap.(*Make sure to leave a gap at the bottom of the wrap for folding*). Now sprinkle with chili pepper flakes and pepper. Lastly, spread one side of your wrap with a layer of greek yogurt. (* I do it on the right because I fold the left side then the right and the greek yogurt helps the wrap stick together on it’s own!). Now Fold up the bottom of your wrap, then the sides and you are ready to dig in! Enjoy!
