Avocado Wraps {with peanut mustard dipping sauce}

So I am {reluctantly} trying to get going on a healthy eating kick.  I LOVE my treats and it seems like it has been one constant chocolate and sweet holiday since last Halloween.  Now that the Easter candy has finally disappeared though, I have vowed to keep the treats out of the house as much as possible and to focus on some healthier eating habits.  So bye-bye chocolate and hello avocado wraps!

  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Soy Sauce
  • 1 tsp peanut sauce

  • 16 8 inch rice paper rounds {or about 20 6 inch rounds}

DIRECTIONS
  • In a small bowl, mix all of the ingredients for the dipping sauce together until the sugar dissolves completely.  Set aside.

Maybe not quite as good as chocolate, but pretty close!  Now I just have to try and limit myself to one serving size! :)

    YUM! Thanks! I am going to Pin this and add it to my Clean Eating Pinterest folder. Where do you find rice rolls at? Is that something the regular grocery store carries?
