Matthew Rodrigues: Lunch time is about to get real exciting in here, thanks to one of Drew Barrymore Go-To Recipes. POPSUGAR Fitness Editor Michele Foley joins me with a healthy spin on your everyday sandwich; finally, something savory up in this kitchen.
Michele Foley: You are excited!
Matthew Rodrigues: I am excited!
Michele Foley: Lunch is exciting!
Matthew Rodrigues: It's so exciting!
Michele Foley: It's so exciting! It's an important meal, if you eat the wrong thing for lunch, I mean it can just give you an afternoon slump that lasts all the way to dinner. So to keep energy levels up we are making a nutrient rich collard greens wrap.
Matthew Rodrigues: Collard greens; I love collard greens because they are multifunctional.
Michele Foley:Thank you! We actually featured this recipe on POPSUGAR.
com and our readers loved it, so big thank you to Drew.
Matthew Rodrigues: I like Drew Barrymore because her approach to health is realistic.
Michele Foley: Absolutely! Through her entire career Drew has never succumbed to Hollywood pressures, to sort of fit a certain mold, be a certain way.
Matthew Rodrigues: She never has.
Michele Foley: Never. And we saw this most recently with her pregnancies, where she didn't go out and try and lose 50 pounds in a month, instead she stuck to healthy meals like this.
Matthew Rodrigues: All right, sounds good! So we have got some walnuts.
Michele Foley: Yes, you are going to pulse these in the food processor. When that's done, just add it here to this bowl, and I am going to add these different spices here. So we have tamari soy sauce, we also have some cumin. You know all of these --Matthew Rodrigues: So these walnuts are basically acting like the meats of the sandwich.
Michele Foley: Yeah, full of protein.
Matthew Rodrigues: And they are really good for you; I have a handful everyday.
Michele Foley: You are doing it right man. I mean, they are full of vitamins, omega-3, it's good for skin health, heart health, so many things. We have got coriander here and a little cayenne and chili pepper. So metabolism boosting spices, so all these things --Matthew Rodrigues: And this is it.
Michele Foley: That's it.
Matthew Rodrigues: It's all we do.
Michele Foley: Yeah, and we are just --Matthew Rodrigues: People are like, what, they are going to eat a sandwich with just nuts?
Michele Foley: Yeah, you don't have to cook anything. So you are just going to add this, like you are making a little burrito. I am going to top it with some salsa. So easy.
Matthew Rodrigues: Great! All right, let's try these at a pre-made, and all you have to do is just wrap it up. Michele Foley: Just like a burrito. Matthew Rodrigues: I will try this. It's like a little burrito. It smells like a takari up in here. Michele Foley: Yeah, it smells really hearty, very spicy. What do you think? Oh, this is a good thing. Matthew Rodrigues: This is the best thing that you have made on this show.
Michele Foley: Seriously?
Matthew Rodrigues: It is the best thing you have made on this show.
Michele Foley: Would you have guessed its ingredients?
Matthew Rodrigues: I don't even want to talk anymore, I just want to eat. Thank you so much Michele! So good!
