Dietitian UK: Vegetable Fajitas

Va Va Vroom Vegetable Fajitas

This week I haven’t managed to blog much as the toddler has been sick, not sleeping much and in my bed. Sleep deprivation and a need for many mummy cuddles balanced around work has been a real juggle!

Today she has definitely been on the mend, which has given me some more time to get back into the kitchen. I had been sent some Gluten Free, Wheat Free Wraps to try and had been waiting for the right moment to knack up some fajitas. Today was it.

Fajitas are a firm favourite with by husband, but being wheat intolerant it requires a bit of effort on my behalf as I have to make my own wraps, having some ready made made it ten times easier. I really enjoyed them and the toddler took great delight in eating hers, making them into boats and planes – apparently she has my imaginative streak. They are also super healthy if you serve them with Greek yoghurt instead of sour cream and are a great way to get your veggies in!

We served these with wheat free wraps for myself and normal wraps for the rest of the family. Finger licking good, even if i do say so myself.
