If a sushi roll and a lox bagel where to merge into one delicious bite sized Paleo snack, I think this might just be it!
This super simple wrap that makes an excellent healthy lunch or perfect Paleo appetizer is made with just 4 ingredients: a coconut wrap, lox, avocado and kale.
Better yet, each ingredient is jam-packed with goodness, such as fiber, vitamins and essential oils. It truly is clean-eating at its finest – ideal for the start of the New Year!
1 Coconut Wrap (we love Julian Bakery Paleo Wraps)
1/2 an avocado, sliced into thin strips
1/4 cup kale
3 to 4 slices of lox (fillet of brined salmon)
Place the coconut wrap on a plate.
Starting with the avocado, place thin strips down the middle of the wrap.
Then put a layer of kale and lox on top of the avocado layer.
Starting on one empty side of the wrap, roll the wrap over the center toppings, towards to the empty side, as tightly as possible. (Think sushi rolling and you’ll be in business!)
Once the wrap is tightly rolled, use a sharp knife to slice it into bite-sized pieces and serve chilled.
I’d always heard about people adding avocado to their tuna instead of mayonnaise. Originally I discarded the thought because the taste combination didn’t seem to work in my head, however with the development of my egg allergy I had to step outside my comfort zone.
I decided to give the avocado and tuna a try but I wanted to spice it up a little and include more flavor. The result was a fresca, guacamole inspired tuna salad that I placed in a coconut wrap. This wrap is delicious, simple to make and relatively inexpensive… it’s a triple threat. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
1 can of tuna
1/2 avocado, sliced
juice of 1 lime
1/2 red onion, diced
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
1 – 2 coconut wraps
Drain liquid from the tuna and place tuna in a bowl.
Add avocado, lime juice, red onion and cilantro to bowl.
Mix all ingredients together, mashing occasionally; until desired consistency is reached.
Place tuna mixture into wrap.
It’s that simple. Also, it’s a great option for a picnic or camping, the ingredients are simple enough to transport which means you can bring it with you and make it wherever you are.
Wraps are one of the easiest things to make. Which means they are a perfect solution for lunch, a quick meal on the run or even a picnic. This recipe happens to be one of my favorite wraps, it’s hearty, filling and packs a nutritious punch.

salad mix (I prefer a mix of kale and brussels sprouts)
3 – 4 ounces of smoked salmon
1/2 avocado, sliced
salad dressing of your choice (I used a fig balsamic dressing)
Place salad mix into wrap.
Top with salmon, avocado and salad dressing.
Wrap and enjoy!
It’s that simple to make and incredible delicious. This recipe makes two wraps but feel free to adjust it to make the quantity you need.
Maybe it’s the Italian portion of my heritage that makes me crave meatball wraps, or perhaps it’s just another great excuse to indulge in homemade Marinara Sauce!…
This recipe is really very easy, yet tastes like it came straight out of a Tuscan kitchen. So not only is it a quick-fix and packed with vitamin C, natural immune boosters and omega-3, it makes for a perfect family dish or dinner party indulgence.
In a medium saute pan, melt the coconut oil over medium heat.
In a mixing bowl, combine the grass-fed beef, Italian seasoning and honey or raw agave nectar with your hands.
Form the mixture into meatballs about an inch in diameter and then place them in the medium sauté pan to cook for approximately 6 minutes over medium heat, turning occasionally.
Prepare the Marinara Sauce as directed in the Mouth-Watering Marinara Sauce recipe.
Once the meatballs are cooked, scoop them into the coconut wraps, top them with Marinara Sauce and season them with oregano before serving hot.
