But don’t stop there. Get creative. Try different leafy greens. Learn ways to love their flavour and their texture. As much as I adore kale I leave space in my heart and my diet for spinach, collards, sprouts, cilantro, chard, watercress, arugula….etc.
In honour of the one day a year where everyone seems to be sure to consume something green, I’ve created a special wrap for you to double your dose and help balance out some of the other popular activities enjoyed on this festive holiday.
Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth. On a teflex-lined dehydrator tray spread a 1/4 cup of the batter into a circle (about 1/8 inch thick). Repeat to create 8-9 wraps. Dehydrate at 105 degrees for 5-6 hours. Flip the wraps in the last hour to ensure both sides get dry.
Fill with your favourites. In the photo above:

*This is in no way a traditional Irish dish. But it is green and that seems to be good enough for St. Patrick’s Day fare. Double Double refers to the avocado and spinach in the wrap and the filling.
