Tempeh Salad Wrap with Orange-Miso and Hummus

I have emerged from the first trimester nausea and food aversions and am excitedly able to stomach things such as green leafy salads again!  Hurray! I mean, I still crave heartier, breadier things but at least I’m also getting my veggies in!  It is a step in the right direction, for sure.

So much has happened in the last month.  Business has launched. Website went up today.  Momentum is building.  So much to celebrate!  But this is for another post.  Today, I simply would like to share this most scrumptious wrap I had for lunch.
