Many of you know, I am in the Broadway Show Bullets Over Broadway!!!
HERE WE ARE!!! The lovely ladies of the ensemble (Follow us on Twitter @BulletsBabes.. and if you want to check out the show, check out this deal!!)
Our show is pretty awesome…and exhausting! We wear tight costumes, and perform serious cardio heavy dances for 2 and a half hours!
Before the show, we have to make sure that we don’t over eat (to avoid feeling overly full and bloated), but eat enough in order to have the appropriate amount of energy to perform!
Lots of us enjoy The Karmic Kale wrap from Blossum Du Jour (a really cute vegan cafe in Hells Kitchen). It is delicious, but a bit expensive for my taste. I decided to make my own!
Karmic Kale Wrap
- 1 wrap (I use Trader Joes Brand Brown Rice wrap..also gluten free)
- 1/4 avocado
- 1 small or 1/2 medium sweet potato (roasted)
- Kale (as much as you want, I use about 3-4 stalks)
- 1 lemon wedge
- 2 tbs water
- Option 1: 1 tbs Amys LIGHT Green Goddess Dressing,
- Option 2: 1 tbs 0%fat free greek yogurt, 1 tsp sesame oil, 1 squeeze lemon juice
Pre-roast sweet potatoes (pre heat oven at 450, wash potato, wrap in tin foil and bake until soft-I usually will roast them all on a free morning and keep them in the fridge). Slice into coins.
Pull kale leaves from the stalk, and place them in a pan with 2 tbs water. On low heat, cook until the leaves are slightly steamed. Take off heat, and immediately introduce cold water to the leaves to keep them from cooking more. Squeeze lemon over kale.
Transfer leaves to wrap, top with 1/4 avocado, dressing, sweet potato, wrap it up.. ENJOY!!!!
