Emerald Wraps

Emerald Wrap Ingredients

I found out recently that I am anemic, so I have been eating lots of iron rich foods. For this post I decided to do something a little fun and different plus it includes iron rich spinach, raisins, coconut, peanuts and even the orange marmalade has some iron in it. These Emerald Wraps make a tasty snack or you can eat it as an accompaniment to your lunch. I had them for lunch the other day along with an organic nitrate free chicken sausage (cured without sugar), chicken is another iron rich food.

I had a variation of these wraps at a restaurant several months ago (I made some adjustments to them to fit my dietary needs), I thought they were yummy and fun to eat. For this recipe I am not going to include any kind of measurements because it is best to just put everything in smaller bowls and on small plates. When it is time to eat, you wrap them up one at a time at your table. (Just put the ingredients in the spinach leaf then eat).


Spinach - I buy a large bag of it, so I have a lot to use in different ways throughout the week, the bag that I buy has been thoroughly washed and is ready to eat.

Dry roasted peanuts - I only eat peanuts on a very rare occasion, I prefer other nuts plus other nuts are better for you however I make an exception for the peanuts at times like these.

Raisins - I just buy good old fashioned raisins in the bulk.

Toasted shredded coconut - I buy the large shredded unsweetened coconut in the bulk. I toast it in a cast iron pan with no oil, medium heat until golden brown.

Orange marmalade - I buy Smucker's brand "Simply Fruit", sugar free, fruit juice sweetened, fruit spread.


Take a spinach leaf then take a small amount of the orange marmalade and place it onto it, then take a small amount of all of the rest of the ingredients and put them on top of the orange marmalade. Wrap the spinach leaf around all of the ingredients, pop it into your mouth and eat it!

Happy eating!
