Fresh Spring Rolls

By abbeysue

Pair these fresh vegetable spring rolls with a peanut dipping sauce for a nutritious snack.

Fresh Spring Rolls
  • 2 avocados, ripe yet firm; cut into ½ inch wide lengths

  • 1 head butter lettuce, leaves cut from the firm center rib

  • 1 large red pepper, peeled and cut into 3-4 inch julienne strips

  • 1 large yellow pepper, peeled and cut into 3-4 inch julienne strips

  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro

  • 2 medium carrots, top removed, peeled and cut into 3 inch julienne strips

  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled and cut into 3-4 inch julienne strips

  • 16 soy wrappers

  1. Dip one wrapper into warm water and place on a cutting board.

  2. Layer ingredients for the filling approximately 2-3 inches from the bottom of the wrapper and in a rectangular pile: 6 cilantro leaves, 2-3 lettuce leaves, 2-3 pepper strips, 3 cucumber strips, 2-3 carrot sticks, 2 slices of avocado.

  3. Using dampened fingertips, fold the bottom up over the filling. Fold each the right and left sides over vertically.

  4. Using firm pressure, gently roll the end with the filling over to snugly seal the spring roll. The wrapper is self-sealing so it will stick to itself.

  5. Repeat this process for each roll.

Great recipe…I forget about the healthy foods I like. it really all comes down to what we fuel our bodies with. It takes a little more time to prepare a healthy choice but worth it. Processed food is in our face everywhere so having healthy options ready to go is most important so I do not grab the wrong choice because of hunger and laziness.

Looks good. I may try them when I improve. The spring roll carbs can get pretty high…although the veggies are soooo goood in them!

These spring rolls taste so fresh and delicious. The avacado and cilantro add unique bursts of flavor you'd never get from store bought wraps.

It's hard to eat right with diabetes, but when you have tasty recipes like this to choose from it makes things so much easier!!!

12 years ago when I was diagnosed with diabetes I didn't know how much of an impact it would have on my life…

I'd pay over $5000/year in supply costs.. I was worried sick my children may not develop normally, I'd always be worrying about the possible future complications.. I'd find it hard to stay motivated to continue treatment.

My friend told me about a Doctor she saw on Oprah.. she said the Doctor created a program on how to reverse diabetes, I found it at I'm frickin tired of worrying about syringes, pens, lancets, pump sets, blood work, IV's so I've been giving it a try…

Results so far: My fasting blood sugars were 230-250 range, three weeks after following the program I'm in the 120s.. I'm hoping to get into the 70s and stay there for good.

Everything is coming into normal ranges but I think I'll always be diabetic for life. If I don't follow the protocol I'll go back to my old numbers right?

Has anyone else tried the program? If so how did it work for you I'd really like to hear..

Thanks so much!
