If you came to the Health Starts at Work with Whole Foods event at E|SPACES in Cool Springs last night you were asking for the Thai wrap recipe because you couldn’t believe healthy food could taste so good.  For those of you who couldn’t make it to the event last night, you missed some tasty dishes.  I have listed the Double Green Smoothie recipe and done my best to list the ingredients for those excellent Thai Wraps below for you to try at home.  Special thanks to Whole Foods Market, Hot Yoga Plus, Avalon Effect Light Therapy, and The YMCA for joining us to inspire healthy living and for Brentwood Homepage who covered the event in a recent article “Maintaining Health at Work is Possible.”
