making nori wraps for a quick healthy lunch

by purelytwins

Our brains are just flowing with ideas 24/7 it feels like. Always thinking of things to do.
We are trying not to get overwhelmed and just focus on one project at a time. We are just both so excited for the future.
Our future. A new business. We are entrepreneurs after all, so always thinking of things to do 😉
yoga tara stiles

Tara Stiles Yoga was the perfect way to get back into our regular morning workout routine.


We did the 40 mins of the strong flow and practiced headstands afterwards! Love taking time to practice our yoga.


Michelle’s Wednesday recap:


I finally remembered to take my morning supplements and then could not wait to make a juice! After pulling out all of my ingredients, the juice was not big enough so I ended up juicing more carrots!

egg salad for breakfast

Egg salad with coconut oil.

cabbage tuna nori wrap

Lunch was so good! I was craving a nori wrap and this hit the spot for me.

Filled my nori wrap with cooked cabbage, avocado and a can of tuna.  I enjoyed the nori wrap on top of lettuce with coconut oil.

sushi roll for lunch

I did have a cup of bone broth and took digestive pill too.


Dinner was cooked cabbage and turnips with grass-fed beef and kale with a side of raw carrot slices with coocnut oil and apple cider vinegar. I did take my pre-dinner pills (plus HCL).

mesquite gelatin mush

Pre-dinner snack was gelatin mixed with mesquite and took magnesium pills.

Overall thoughts – I had a good day. No stomach problems. I did drink my water. Staring to feel good again. Gaining my sense of routine back.

Lori’s day:


Breakfast was a lovely green carrot romaine juice followed my 2 eggs with more greens and coconut oil.


Lunch – nori wraps was on the mind. Enjoyed some avocado mixed with can tuna and very thinly sliced raw zucchini wrapped in a nori wrap. Served with some lettuce, coconut oil and nutritional yeast.  Love these nori wraps, definitely going to keep trying to eat them on a daily basis.

I also enjoyed a cup of bone broth with my lunch.  I also took digestive pill and HCL pill before lunch.


Late afternoon I made some peppermint tea and  coconut flour- egg cake.  Simple and so delicious.  Just whipped one egg with one tbsp coconut flour cooked on skillet.


Dinner was thinly sliced raw carrots, more avocado, lettuce, grass-fed ground lamb (from US wellness meats) and steamed turnips. All topped with coconut oil and sea salt. I took all my pre-dinner pills and 2 HCL pills.


After dinner it was time to make marshmallows.

My overall thoughts of day:

It was a good day. I was still feeling a little out of it from the traveling and being away for a few days. But I was able to get a lot done with some personal training ideas and thoughts. Proud of being productive. I got back into my habit of drinking my water so that was good.

As you can tell we both love our nori wraps. They are so fun to make and easy to do too. Well, most of the time.

We are still not the best at rolling them and making them look pretty. Practice makes perfect, right? 😉

Who else loves nori wraps? What do you like to fill yours with? Ifyou haven’t tried nori wraps would you? What would you like in your nori wraps? Would you like us to provide recipes using nori wraps?

Hi! I’ve never made nori wraps, but would like to try. You two make it look pretty easy-peasy. I think I waaaay over think things…keep it simple right! i made your marshmallows….they’re so good, perfect snack. I used Knox to experiment with. I’m patiently…although not so patiently waiting for my order of Greak Lakes from Amazon. Taking a long time. Looking forward to making a healthier batch. I’ve got some anise extract I’m going to try. So many possibilities! Enjoy reading abou your workouts, eats and all! My workouts have fallen apart, stress at work…that’s when I need it the most. The space between my ears needs constant workout…defeat the excuses! xo

purelytwins February 28, 2013 - 12:04 pm

yes so many possibilities! stress happens, even with us! hang in there you will get back on track 🙂

I also love nori wraps sistas!!!! So good 🙂 They make me happy! 🙂 Hahahaha! I really liked when I stuffed them with sweet potato and chicken/pork!

Yours look delicious!

Love you for who you are.

P.s. my mind is always racing too lol

lindsay February 28, 2013 - 1:13 pm

we love making those wraps too! salty savory and just plain good!! i still need to make those marshmallows. I’m a bit intimidated though.

i tend to use daikon radish in my nori wraps a lot, it’s a nice clean crunch and pairs well with the taste of seaweed. i love adding tamari+gf Worcestershire sauce to tahini and using that as my spread

purelytwins February 28, 2013 - 4:35 pm

oh great ideas Melissa!!! we need to add tahini back into our diet here soon, miss it 😉

Gianna February 28, 2013 - 2:11 pm

Love it ladies! Your homemade sushi looks so professional, what is your secret?!

purelytwins February 28, 2013 - 4:54 pm

aww thanks, no secret really, just trial and error, and lots of practice

Cory February 28, 2013 - 3:26 pm

Nori rolls rock! I love eating them with canned tuna, Avacado and rices cauliflower. I spice with coconut aminos. Mmm

I would l to see nori wrap recipes. Which brand and style do you use?

Also, which brand of coconut flour do you use? Raw? Coconut Secret is raw, but Bob’s Red Mill & Tropical Traditions are not. Do they produce different baking results? What’s the difference beyond the obvious of “raw” temperature drying?



purelytwins February 28, 2013 - 5:12 pm

right we like Coconut Secret brand, and sometimes use Bob’s REd mill. At the moment we see now difference in baking results with them.

Lindsay February 28, 2013 - 7:44 pm

Yes, please post a nori wrap recipe! I’ve been wanting to try it.

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table February 28, 2013 - 10:28 pm

I love nori wraps! Mine aren’t prettiest, but I love the taste. I made a beet wasabi dip for mine that was soooo good. Must try it with tuna!

purelytwins March 1, 2013 - 9:18 am

ours are not always pretty either, just sometimes they roll nicely 😉 that beet wasabi dip sounds amazing, have to give it a try as we are learning to like wasabi.

Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table March 1, 2013 - 10:00 am

Here’s the recipe if you’re interested! Wasabi is my jam. 🙂

purelytwins March 1, 2013 - 10:38 am

Awesome Laura thank you!

Celina Toenz March 1, 2013 - 1:10 am

Id love to see some raw nori wrap recipes! Lately i have been filling mine with raw enoki mushrooms, cucumber, avocado and carrots!

Deanna@healthyleanfit March 1, 2013 - 8:16 am

I finally just ordered the Tara Stiles video set! 🙂 So excited to get them! I want more than the 5-10 minute videos I have been doing on You Tube!

purelytwins March 1, 2013 - 9:16 am

awesome Deanna! You will love them! Love Tara!

Victoria March 1, 2013 - 10:38 am

I love nori wraps! I typically have them with rice, avocado and yams for carbo loading meals before long runs or races! But I would like to try them with just the fish and vegetables as well. I also make pulled pork in my slow cooker quite often, maybe I could make pulled pork nori wraps with the leftovers? Just thinking out loud haha….

Also, as for yoga, I usually use a site called My Yoga Online ( and it’s like NetFlix but for yoga videos. I think it’s around $10 a month and it has a HUGE variety of routines depending on what type and the length of the routine. They also have meditation and other info on their site too if you’re down with that. I have no affiliation with them, I just really like them!

Mina March 1, 2013 - 11:18 am

I’ll pretty much do what you gals did nori wrap wise. When my husband and daughter are having tuna salad sandwiches, I’ll just put it in a nori wrap instead. Interested in your tuna avo salad. You are using avo instead of mayonnaise?

purelytwins March 1, 2013 - 12:53 pm

yes pretty much, we keep it simple by just mashing an avocado with can tuna or can salmon 🙂

Mina March 1, 2013 - 2:16 pm

I’m going to try it! 🙂
