Hearts Of Palm-Wraps

While shopping for groceries the other day, I came across a can of Hearts of Palm. I had no idea what these were or how to use them but I tossed them in the buggy and continued my shopping.

The curiosity was killing him, so Nick started searching for some info about this veggie and found a recipe to try. I'm not sure what the recipe is called but I have to give him all the credit for this one. It was a win as he put together a combination of healthy veggies and made a delicious filling for tortilla wraps.

Hearts of Palm comes from the center of a cabbage palm tree. The textures is crunchy yet soft sort of like an asparagus stem. (They taste nothing like asparagus). 

They have the taste that resembles artichoke hearts. They are very tasty and I could seriously eat them right out of the can.

This veggie is full of nutrition. To name a few:
  • Zinc
  • B-6 (promotes healthy sleep cycle)
  • C
  • Potassium
  • Protein 
  • fiber 
Hearts of Palm has many health benefits. To name a few:
  • High in fiber and protein so it enhances weight loss.
  • Improves immune system.
  • Great for digestive system.
  • Lowers blood sugar..
  • Decreases inflammation.
  • Supports bone health.
  • Prevents Anemia.
You can use Hearts of Palm for many recipes as they take on any flavor they are mixed with. They are also great chopped into salads or made into dips. I seen a recipe for "Crabless Crab cakes", I cant wait to try next. 

I love the recipe Nick came up with for the wraps. We have eaten these several times as a healthy, delicious and filling meal. Here is how he did it. 

Hearts Of Palm Wraps

Spray sauce pan with no stick spray or ad a touch of oil.
Chopped onions
Frozen Zoodles (or chopped zucchini) 
Cook until soft.
Sprinkle some minced garlic (optional)
salt and pepper.
1- can of chick peas (Garbanzo beans).
1- can of chopped Hearts of Palm.
Cover and simmer about 15 minutes to get it all softened up.

Now Enjoy.

We like to add sour cream, cheese and salsa to our wrap before rolling it all together. These are delicious and you will not even miss the meat.

I can't help but wonder about the first person that chopped a palm tree down and said, 
"hmm, I wonder what this taste like". 

Sashka -Review

I just purchased more arm candy. I love anything with a beach vibe. I am obsessed with the glass beaded rolled Nepal bracelets. I have several made from different Nepal artisans. That's why I'm excited to be part of SashkaCo's. advocate group.

SashkaCo. offers beautiful hand made jewelry that is delicately created in the valley of Nepal by artisans with passion, skill and love in putting together these one of a kind bracelets. Each piece is created using the worlds finest glass and sterling silver beads. My first purchase of more to come is this beautiful clear/white and gold beaded bracelet.

With every purchase made, proceeds go to empower Nepali artisans to rise above poverty through fair trade. Women earn a living wage that exceeds local minimum wage and get a fair price for their goods.

.....and you get to wear a beautiful bracelet like me! I love how these roll on bracelets are light weight and have just enough stretch to roll over your hand and onto your wrist. They wear good whether your sleeping, working, swimming or working out.

I like wearing mine best in the summer where they can be seen stacked on my arm with several other colors. I get a lot of compliments on my Nepal bracelets and they often become a great conversation piece.

Visit SashkaCo. today and purchase your very own one-of-a-kind bracelet. They even come in plus size and all bracelets are backed with a 100% guarantee.
