This one is for you, Ryan!

by Meghann on March 3, 2009

I dedicate my lunch today to Ryan over at Chasing Daylight. After I made this wrap a couple of months ago, I saw it pop up on her blog over the entire next week… I think she may have enjoyed my creation. 🙂

So what was the wrap that drove Ryan’s taste buds crazy?…. Sweet Potato, Goat Cheese & Spinach…. Mmmmm


As soon as I decided to make mashed Sweet Potatoes as a side for dinner last night I knew this was in the forecast for lunch. I simply filled the wrap then pressed it in the George Foreman until the wrap was crispy and the cheese was melty. It was the perfect combination.

Not all of the sweet potato would fit in the wrap, so I improvised and add the rest on the side with Black Beans on top.


It doesn’t look very appetizing, but trust me it was good!

I also had an assortment of Cucumber and Tomato Slices because I feel my meal was not quite colorful enough yet. 


A perfect, filling lunch.


For my midmorning snack I decided to reach out and try something different.


I had 1/2 cup of Fat Free Cottage Cheese with Cinnamon sprinkled on top and a few Crackers on the side. It was a very good combination.

This morning I loaded my bike in my car in hopes of getting a ride in after work. My hopes were sealed when Caitlin e-mailed me this morning asking if I would join her on a ride. For some reason having a partner to run with or go on a bike ride with always gets me that much more pumped for the particular activity. Thank God for Caitlin and the level of commitment to exercising that we share! 🙂

I’m trying to get one of my friends to become my running buddy this summer! And I’m already in a 5 people bike gang. We’re pretty awesome. Can’t wait to cruise the streets!

12 Hallie March 3, 2009 at 3:28 pm

Looks great! Did you make the beans or did you buy them like that? I’m just now adding black beans to my “foods I like/eat” list.

13 Courtney (The Hungry Yogini) March 3, 2009 at 3:32 pm

Yum! Sweet potatoe and black beans are a wonderful combo. I’m having it tonight actually!

14 Bec March 3, 2009 at 3:36 pm

Ok first it was mashed sweet potatoes, then it was sweet potatoes in a wrap? Its official I am making some mashed sweet potatoes in the near future! So jealous of your bike ride, I am patiently waiting for the snow to melt so I can let my bike outside again.

15 Leah March 3, 2009 at 3:37 pm

That wrap looks GREAT!

I must try this combo.

Have fun with Caitlin tonight!

16 Ryan March 3, 2009 at 3:38 pm

Aw, thanks!!! I LOVE that wrap!!! I made it at least once a week after that post until I ran out of Flat Outs! haha 😀

Enjoy your bike ride!

I have to remember that wrap combo as I love anything sweet potato related. Glad your recovery from the weekend is going well. Enjoy the bike ride with Caitlin!

18 Shelby March 3, 2009 at 3:46 pm

Those really are the perfect ingredients for a wrap! I must make that!

22 Diana (Soap & Chocolate) March 3, 2009 at 4:38 pm

Cinnamon on cottage cheese is the best! With some almonds and raisins it is the perfect snack.

I really want that wrap too – sounds perfect. 🙂

25 Lauren March 3, 2009 at 5:34 pm

That wrap sounds sensational! I love each and every one of the ingredients you used. I like to “press” wraps and sandwiches too! Crispy on the outside, melty on the inside – yummmm.

26 Run Saraaah March 3, 2009 at 6:09 pm

I wish I had an exercise buddy too. I’ve never tried grilling wraps on my Foreman…I’ll have to dig it out and give it a whirl!

27 cleanveggiex3 March 3, 2009 at 6:22 pm

28 Lauren March 3, 2009 at 8:43 pm

Oh wow, I am definitely going to have to give this wrap a try. I think it incorporates some of the best ingredients known to man!

Props for your creativity that resulted in such a delectable lunch.

Take care!
