Tropic Fruit Rolls with a Yogurt-Turmeric Sauce

20160531_124016-01.jpeg

I’ve got a real issue when it comes to fruit–I love ’em, but sometimes that sad little old orange could sit in the fruit bowl for days on end without me touching it only because I can sometimes, sorta be a lazy bum. If it’s washed, cut and ready in front of my face, I’ll have at it, if it’s not, I procrastinate until the poor little old orange whithers away and dies. Morbid…I know.

With Ramadan right around the corner, and plenty of Ramadan menu tastings happening, I’m trying my best to eat clean (especially the days I work from my home office).

Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you these beautifully satisfying healthy Tropic Fruit Spring Rolls–TADAAAA!

Here’s what you’ll need:

For fruit rolls:

  • Any fruit you’ve got on hand, sliced very thinly. I used bananas, kiwis, orange and strawberries
  • Rice paper

For sauce:

  • 1/3 a cup of cultured yogurt
  • Organic maple syrup (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon of organic turmeric powder

 

How to make ’em:

  1. Fill up a big ol’ bowl of hot water and leave to cool down just enough for you to be able to put your hands in it and not boil your fingertips
  2. Grab your rice papers and submerge in the water for about 30 seconds or until the edges start to curl up a bit
  3. Carefully take the rice paper out of the water and place it on a plate
  4. Layer your fruits on to the rice paper
  5. Start rolling by bring in the sides and roll
  6. For the sauce, dump all the sauce ingredients into a little bowl and mix
  7. Serve, grab and dunk in sauce–good times..

A little part of me wants to extend my weekend and take today off as well. Feeling super lethargic, but what did I expect from an entire week of hard-core face-stuffing!

I hereby vow to be kinder to my body this week.

This morning’s breakfast is an almond milk chia seed pudding topped with some fresh fruits and maple syrup.

Finally watched Cowspiracy last night (yet another wild Thursday night lol) and it’s got the both of us really contemplating our dietary habits and our lifestyle in general.

I think it’s time for some massive changes–for a food revolution. Let’s see..

On a different note, look at all this fresh produce from @organicoasisae 😍😍

May not be the best looking photo this morning, but it was just what the doctor ordered after last night’s launch party at #TheHide

I made myself some Greek-style scrambled eggs with Greek olives, tomatoes, mushrooms and plenty of dill and goat’s milk feta cheese.

Getting some work done never tasted so fruity!

Yesterday I wasn’t so nice to my body. So today I woke up at the cracks of dawn, meditated, got some work done, went for a run, made breakfast for everyone and I’m heading off to the beach for some vitamin sea and a good book. #ICouldGetUsedToThis

Ever want to just lean over to your neighbor’s plate and just eat their food?

Every. Last. Morsel.

That’s how I felt at #urbanbistro today. My neighbor’s organic sriracha salmon looked amazing!
