Tortilla Roll-Ups

These are a great snack!

1 high fiber, whole wheat tortilla/wrap
1 T. low fat cream cheese
2 tsp. green chilies or 505 Green Chili Salsa
2 slices nitrate-free sandwich meat

Spread the low fat cream cheese over the tortilla. Add the green chilies and sandwich meat. Roll the tortilla and slice into 1/2 inch thick circles. Enjoy!

*Variation: I've also made these by spreading 1 T. pasta sauce and 2 T. low-fat ricotta cheese over the tortilla/wrap. Sprinkle with a little mozzarella cheese. Roll and slice into 1/2 inch thick circles. Serve warm or cold. Delicious!

Crock Pot Oatmeal

I love throwing this in the crock pot before I leave for the day! My kids wake up to a delicious, healthy breakfast that they love.

In a crock pot, with a whisk, mix together the following:

2 eggs
1 cup vanilla coconut milk (I use the 'So Delicious' brand)
2 cups 1% milk
1/4 -1/2 cup agave (depending on how sweet you like it)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Add 1 cup whole grain oatmeal and a 1/2 cup of groats to the milk mixture and stir until combined. Quinoa also works well in place of the groats.

Cook on high for 2 hours or until a nice, creamy consistency. Serve with milk, if desired.
