Grilled Veggie Wrap

While in Disney over Spring Break I had one of the best grilled veggie I decided that I needed to make my own version, a little better, a little healthier and simple enough even a husband could make it :)
So, here is my "Better than Disney Grilled Veggie Wrap"!

Whole wheat tortilla wraps
Summer squash
Red pepper
Portabella mushrooms
Low fat cheese (I use a provolone or havarti)
Spinach (do not sautee)

1-slice your veggies, I slice the summer squash, zucchini, and eggplant length wise)
2-spray the pan with non stick spray or a light coating of oil (I use soybean oil)
3-heat sautee pan on medium
4-sautee the veggies until they are tender
5-add tofu in for the last minute
6-warm tortilla (I use the microwave fro about 10-15 seconds)
7-place veggies, tofu, spinach and cheese to the tortilla
8-wrap it and enjoy!!!

I hope you enjoy this great wrap as much as we do in our house!!!

Feel free to substitute your own favorite veggies...let me know if you come up with other great combinations!!

Better Oats!

We love oatmeal in this house but, many contain artificial flavors and colors.  Naturally, I was delighted recently to find Oat Revolution Instant Oatmeal by Better Oats at our local grocery store.  It is made with whole grains and real fruit!  Did you know that Quaker Oatmeal's strawberry oatmeal does not contain strawberries?  It actually has dehydrated apples injected with artificial strawberry flavors.  However, Oat Revolution Oatmeal has pieces of dehydrated strawberries along with flaxseed and more vitamins!

My 2 favorite parts of Oat Revolution Oatmeal are: 1-the measuring cup pouch to ensure that you have the right amount of water going into your oatmeal. 2-the price is right at $1.25 for Oat Revolution's box of 5 packets, compared to Quaker which is $3.99 for 10 packets.
