As part of my microbiome-friendly New Year’s resolution, I’m continuing to try to get our family eating more whole “real” foods that are easy to make and family kid friendly. Just saw this interesting recipe for Collard Green Wraps on Fresh Tastes, the PBS Food blog. While I’m not totally sure that the girls will be thrilled about using collard greens as a wrapper – I know they love avocados, carrots, and hummus. So, I’m thinking that we’ll have a wrap taste test party this weekend.

We’ll get a few different kinds of “green wraps”: kale, collard greens, turnip greens, romaine lettuce, cabbage, and leafy green or red lettuce. We’ll see what they and Daddy bring home from the grocery store. Then we’ll put out slivered veggies, beans (they will always eat beans!), and a hummus and see how different green wrappers influence the taste of the same inside ingredients. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Also love the idea of sprouts. I’ve never really grown sprouts, but it would be a fun, healthy something to get established in the kitchen this winter. We actually saw snowflakes the other day in Maryland, guess winter has decided to join us.

Stay tuned for the next post on Microbiome Friendly New Year’s Resolutions.

    For what it’s worth, we tried a taste test, but the kids weren’t too excited about greens wrapping up some of their favorite foods. I liked the cabbage leaf best. We tried red leaf lettuce, cabbage, turnip greens, and romaine lettuce.
