Sometimes we just want a light meal and these vegan wraps and pita pockets are perfect for those kinds of days.
Simple vegan lunch
Each year, we spend a few days in Tennessee at a rustic, 80-year old, one-room cabin on the lake. No TV, internet, or AC There’s only a tiny captain’s kitchen for making meals. I absolutely love it!
Normally, we have these veggie pitas for lunch one of the days during our stay, because we like to keep it simple.
No cooking, only hiking, reading, and resting. Healthy and easy to go together quite well, I think.
