Remove and set aside. Wash and choose from crispy lettuce leaves for taco wraps. Prepare avocados and tomatoes. Fill lettuce cavities with taco “meat” and top with toppings.

ALTs (avocado, lettuce, and tomatoes) are made with vegetable-based wraps and contain avocados--a rich source of monounsaturated fatty acids including oleic acid, the carotenoid lutein, and significant quantities of the antioxidant vitamin E. The lettuce and tomatoes also add fiber and antioxidants.

¼ cup golden flaxseeds, soaked or ½ cup Garden of Life Super Seed
1 cup filtered water
2 tsp. ground mustard powder
¼ cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp. Garden of Life Lehua Honey
½ teaspoon Celtic sea salt

2 avocados, sliced
1 cup alfalfa sprouts
Mrs. Dash seasoning, to taste
2 cups mixed greens
2 tomatoes, sliced

Equipment needed: blender

Prepare filling ingredients. To make flaxnaise, grind flax seeds to a meal or use Garden of Life Super Seed. Blend ingredients in a blender. Texture should be smooth and not a jelly-like texture. Add filtered water to prevent thickening. Fill wraps with filling and drizzle immediately with Flaxnaise. Serve wraps for a light meal. Serves 8.
