Collard wraps are nature’s tortilla and a ridiculously easy way to eat dark iron-rich leafy greens for breakfast.
In a way that’s not a smoothie.
A break from slurping. Reinvigorate your digestion by letting it do its thing. Digestion starts in the mouth with movement in our jaw.
The elicited saliva from our gums starts the initial enzymatic breakdown of our food.
All you need is one large collard leaf, a banana, some natural peanut butter [homemade recipe], and some fresh/thawed fruit.
Spread the peanut butter.
Mash the fruit on top. Raspberries. Strawberries, Blueberries. Mango. Are all good options.
Mash or leave whole 1-2 bananas.
Roll up and cut in half.
