This recipe also makes a delicious and healthy addition to your meal planning for the week.

Serves 1

Prep time:10 minutes

Ingredients:

1-100% whole wheat soft tortilla

1/8 cup red onion, sliced thin

1/2 avocado, sliced

1/4 cup cooked chicken, shredded

1 cup (packed) baby spinach

Easy Healthy Lunch Idea: Chicken Spinach Wrap

Spread the mayo down the center of the wrap and add the mustard. Add the rest of the ingredients down the center of the wrap and then fold the sides of the tortilla that are at the ENDS of the filling first.

Then tightly roll up one side of the tortilla, that runs the length of the filling, pushing in the filling as you roll. I find the wrap stays together the best that way. Slice in half and enjoy!

January Wallpapers

Hello January! Hello January wallpapers! January is a great time to think about new ideas, new beginnings, fresh starts, clean slates. In my home it’s a time of clearing away the Christmas decor, getting organized and back into daily routines. Here are some January wallpapers for your phone that help you get back into new rhythms and daily routines, bright fresh clean starts. I like white, earthy or outdoor themes to help bring some outdoor freshness to the indoors. White to me is clean, uncluttered, soothing, restful.

How to Save on the Phone:

Press and hold the photo that you want and click ‘add to photos’ or ‘save to iPhone’. This should work on Androids as well!

You might need to crop these photos slightly depending on the size of phone that you have but every photo here should still look just as good when adjusted.

Once you’ve saved the photo to your camera roll, you can go into settings and change your wallpaper.

Keep in mind that you can set a different photo for your lock screen and home screen respectively.

Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin

In this Caldecott Medal-winning picture book, the true story of Wilson Bentley and his singular fascination with snowflakes is rendered in rich prose and gorgeous artwork, perfect for the holidays, snow days, and everyday.

Wilson Bentley was always fascinated by snow. In childhood and adulthood, he saw each tiny crystal of a snowflake as a little miracle, and wanted to understand them.

His parents supported his curiosity and saved until they could give him his own camera and microscope. At the time, his enthusiasm was misunderstood. But with patience and determination, Wilson catalogued hundreds of snowflake photographs, gave slideshows of his findings and, when he was 66, published a book of his photos. His work became the basis for all we know about beautiful, unique snowflakes today.

This biographical tribute to a very special farmer is the perfect holiday gift or snow day read.

Brambley Hedge:Winter Story by Jill Barklem

It was the middle of winter and very, very cold. The mice of Brambly Hedge forecasted snow.

And they were right. In the morning they awoke to find their doors and windows hidden behind deep drifts. There hadn’t been snow like this for years. “There’s enough for a Snow Ball!” cried the mice with glee, and set to work in the time-honoured way to make an Ice Hall for the festivities. The little mice watched wide-eyed as all the preparations were made.

Then at last everything was ready, and the Ball could begin…
