Sunflower Seed Detox Wrap

Repost from Hello Glow

Wraps are always my perfect power lunch. They are portable and easy to customize, and you can pack a lot of nutrition into a lettuce leaf or collard wrap.

This wrap is a twist on the traditional hummus wrap, made with a savory, nutty sunflower seed spread. Sunflower seeds are one of the healthiest foods you can eat.  They’re full of protein (29 grams in 1 cup) and vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps support heart health and protect your body against toxins like air pollution (and can even help ease PMS and prevent diabetes). Minerals like selenium, manganese, copper and magnesium—which can help lower blood pressure and aid with detoxification—are also present at high levels in sunflower seeds. Pretty impressive for a tiny seed!

This easy, healthy lunch wrap recipe can be made with whatever veggies you have on hand, but crunchy radishes, sprouts and red cabbage work really nicely with the flavor of the sunflower spread. Wrap it all up in a lettuce leaf, collard leaf, nori sheet or thinly sliced zucchini, and you’re good to go for lunch!
