Been playing a lot with the wonton wrappers. Check out my recipes for enchiladas and tuna melts. Also saw turkey/cheese/avocado roll-ups on theworldaccordingtoeggface and have been noshing on those. About as simple as it gets! I also did a wonton wrapper crisped in a frying pan with non-stick spray, and spread with hummus the other day as well. Had been trying to figure out what I could put hummus on top of other than a cracker. Pics of the turkey roll-up and hummus wonton below.

So, emotionally, I had an interesting few days. Got pretty down, actually. And, man, that little head hunger gremlin resurrected itself pretty easy. Like it's been hiding just under the surface. I wallowed with him for a day, but didn't let him get the best of me via food...then worked to get constructive with what I was feeling. Figure if I do this enough times, food won't play into my "bummed out" days which crop up now and again - and often unexpectedly! Want to hear more? Check out this week's video.

Applegate organic turkey and 1/2 a Sargento colby cheesestick. Added some avocado, but not in the picture.

Roll 'em up and heat with some non-stick olive oil spray

mmm...gooey. On the side is a wonton cracker I threw in the pan, then spread with hummus. This was three meals :)
