Sandwiches and Wraps

Basic Egg Salad:
Boil 6 eggs.  Once cool, peel and chop.  Mix in 1/2 c greek yogurt and 1-2 T of mayo (for flavor).  Finely chop any veggies you have on hand (onion, bell pepper, celery, etc).  Season as you like (I usually do some garlic powder and onion flakes).
PB&J Tortilla Rolls
Spread peanut butter on a tortilla.  Top with jelly (I like to make my own blueberry preserves or strawberry chia jam).  Roll tightly and slice in 1/2 inch segments (It will slice better if you refrigerate a bit first).
Banana Roll-ups/Banana Sushi
Spread nut butter on a tortilla.  Place a whole banana on the edge of one side and roll up.  Slice in 1/2 inch segments.
Avocado Pinwheels
Spread cream cheese on a tortilla.  Top with mashed avocado and finely torn greens.  Add veggies or meat as you wish.  Roll tightly, wrap in foil, and place in fridge for 30 minutes.  Slice in 1/2 inch segments.
Avocado egg salad

4 eggs
1/2 an avocado, mashed
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
1 T mustard
1 T mayo or greek yogurt
1 T garlic powder

Boil eggs. Peel and dice.  When cool, mash eggs with remaining ingredients.  Tastes best when cold from the fridge.
Tortilla pizza

Spread tortilla with tomato sauce (canned/jarred/homemade- it's a great way to use up veggie purees).  Top with cheese and finely chopped veggies.  Place in the oven on a cookie sheet with the broiler on high.  Remove when the cheese is melted and bubbly (between 5-10 minutes).
