Easy Raw Collard Wraps with Italian Pate

HAPPY NEW YEAR! WELCOME 2014! Let’s make it your best YEAR EVER!

I have an all raw recipe for you today – I love my greens, I really do and collards, cooked or raw, are GREAT as well as oh so good for you.

In the southern US they eat a lot of collard greens but they cooked them to death as well as adding fat and other things to them so….they most likely lose a lot of their goodness.

Collards are very good when cooked, but to eat them raw they are slightly tough. You wouldn’t really make a salad with them unless you wilted them a bit. But, because they are heavier they make fantastic wraps. They hold this chunkier Italian pate really well. Yes, you could use a lettuce leaf but I highly suggest trying a collard wrap as they contain an outrageous amounts of vitamins. So eat them up! Cooked or raw.

NOTE: The recipe for the Italian Pate is at the end of the video – makes it easier to see and write down.



How I really like to cook collards are to first sauté garlic and onions in a frying pan with some oil. Then wash and chop the collards into small pieces. Mushrooms are great also added to this. After adding the chopped collards to the pan, add a bit of water and a touch of apple cider vinegar and cover with lid. Stir often. You can also add a splash of Tamari for flavour or salt and pepper.


I have spent the last couple days really going over what I want 2014 to be like for me. It is going to be a year of BIG change for me and I hope you are along for the ride.

I have helped you with eating healthier but I know health involves so much more than that. It also involves what you think and what you do. I know because it does for me and I see that my clients also need more than just “healthy recipes”. Because it involves so much more, and because I am working on OVERALL health for myself it is time I really bring that in to my videos, e-mails, programs and classes. It has been my passion for years to read everything on healing, mind/body connections, emotions and health, personal development, manifestation and of course nutrition and health. My experience as a personal trainer and yoga instructor definitely was the “what to do” part of health.

I believe in Wholistic Health – mind, body and soul. This year I can’t wait to share information and trainings on what I think are the 3 Keys To Health: What you eat, what you think and what you do.


So with the New Year here are you thinking about making this year the year you get yourself back on track, eating right (consistently), maybe losing some weight, increasing your energy and getting healthier? Are you frustrated with never having enough time, feeling stressed, tired and exhausted most days? Maybe you are not sleeping well because you have so many things going on in your head and you just can’t shut it off.

That is what I am hearing from many women right now. Isn’t that crazy? Health is more than just what you eat, it is also how you think and what you do. That is what I help women with – the whole thing.
