Similar, but Better

by Meghann on January 15, 2009

Today’s lunch was very similar to the one I ate on Tuesday.


It had Yellow Squash and Cucumber with a tablespoon of Hummus


And a nice juicy Baby Pickle on the side


But what makes this lunch better then the other is that inside the delicious Flat Out Spinach Wrap is a nice heaping helping of last night’s ‘Cheesy’ Chickpea Cauliflower Casserole.


The left overs totally made that wrap! The left over casserole took to the role of wrap filling rather nicely and made my lunch very enjoyable. If you made this dish and have left overs I highly suggest rolling it into a wrap the next day. Yum!

Midmorning I brought out a Pistachio Larabar to snack on.


Though I have enjoyed the pistachio flavor in the past, this one was a bit meh to me and I ate half before discarding the rest. Oh well.

Has anyone else been paying attention to the Peanut Butter Salmonella scare out there? Apparently they traced the salmonella back to King Nut which is a manufacturer whom mainly sells their PB in bulk to schools and other organizations. So, all of our precious Peanut Butters are safe.

However, I read today that Kellogs is recalling all of their Peanut Butter crackers until an investigation is complete in their peanut factories. So you may want to hold off on munching down on any Kellog crackers – which includes Austin and Keeblers  Brands – just to be on the safe side. 🙂

Good way to use up the leftovers! Looks tasty.

I love wraps and yours looks fantastic! I’ve heard about the samonella scare and how they linked it to pb. I’m so glad that my Jif and PB & Co weren’t affected! 🙂

My heart skipped a beat when I heard about the PB scare. Seriously, at the very moment, I have a 5-lb jar of peanut butter sitting in the pantry. (I think it’s okay though.)

Yummy, yummy wrap! I should try making those more often.

How do you keep all that filling from falling out while you’re eating the wrap? I always make such a mess 🙂 But that’s the half the fun, I guess!

What a beautiful day ‘o green! Is it St. Patty’s Day yet?

Thanks for the heads up on the PB…I hadn’t heard yet.

I am currently eating a copy of the wrap you made Tuesday with a different flavor Flat Out. You are a genius…it is so amazing!!!

I just love how colorful your plate is! Look at the green!

8 Maggie January 15, 2009 at 1:50 pm

Your wrap is making me hungry!!! I heard about the PB scare – but I think (hope) I’m in the clear. I do eat ridiculous amounts of it, but I think TJ’s brand is ok!

9 Shelby January 15, 2009 at 1:52 pm

What a FABULOUS way to use the leftovers. I will try that too when I make the casserole =)

I love all the greenage on your plate. Yummy.

YIKES! My mom just informed me of this last night, but I also saw it on Lindsay (love of oats)’s blog….my mom literally goes, OH NO! your precious peanut butter what are you going to do? Ha i should read about it more but it’s nice to know we probably don’t need to worry

12 Missy (Missy Maintains) January 15, 2009 at 2:23 pm

13 Melissa S. January 15, 2009 at 2:31 pm

14 Melissa S. January 15, 2009 at 2:31 pm

I’ve read about the PB scare…that is why everyone should eat almond butter. 🙂

Brilliant wrap at lunch. My gosh, that looked so good and creamy. I loved all the green/yellow action on your plate. So healthy!

18 Allison January 15, 2009 at 3:44 pm

That wrap with the leftover chickpea/cauliflower deal – LOOKS TDF! Seriously!

19 Marissa January 15, 2009 at 4:20 pm

I love your leaf plate – so cute!!

20 kristi January 15, 2009 at 4:49 pm

Your lunch looks awesome! I’m going to look for the spinach flat out wraps when we go to walmart this weekend.

21 Danielle January 15, 2009 at 4:57 pm

I need to try a pistaschio flavored larabar, they are my favorite nuts!
I haven’t seen the spinach flatouts by me yet but I’ll have to keep my eye out for them.

23 Sweet and Fit January 15, 2009 at 5:14 pm

what a creative way to make use of last night’s leftovers! I bet the spinach flat-out wrap went really well with the chickpea & cauliflower casserole =)

24 bobbi January 15, 2009 at 5:21 pm

I have not heard of this recal…your wrap looks so yummy. I will be contacting you very soon about the fun new thing I am doing on my blog:)

25 jenngirl January 15, 2009 at 5:49 pm

Oh the inside of that wrap looks AmAzInG!

I have seen the pb scare stuff, and I’m hopefully in the clear…that’s scary though, I practically live off the stuff!

26 caitlin January 15, 2009 at 5:50 pm

im backkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

27 Holly January 15, 2009 at 6:18 pm

Good for you for throwing the bar away if you didn’t like it. I tried the PB cookie kind today and found it dry and not that tasty but can’t bring myself to throw away healthy, nutritious food!…so I ate it anyways

28 ksgoodeats January 15, 2009 at 6:20 pm

Oh my gosh – that wrap! YUM!!

I, luckily, don’t eat that brand of PB crackers!

29 Erica January 15, 2009 at 6:38 pm

I bought the spinach flat outs and love them! yesterday I put one under the broiler for a bit and broke it up once it was crispy to dip in hummus…..mmmmmm 😉

I have been following the PB issue! Just crazy! Who knew!

30 Sarah January 15, 2009 at 7:29 pm

I’m such a fan of how you repurposed that casserole!

31 gina (fitnessista) January 15, 2009 at 7:52 pm

that wrap looks glorious!
the pb scare freaked me out too.. thank goodness we don’t really need to worry
hope you have a great night!

32 Beadie January 15, 2009 at 8:21 pm

I haven’t been able to find the pistacio larabar, I am hoping Whole Foods has it when I go this weekend!

33 eatingbender January 15, 2009 at 11:41 pm

That wrap looks like absolute perfection. You rock at making them!

34 Nicole January 16, 2009 at 7:30 am
