Spinach Hummus with Apple Slices

My mother-in-law makes delicious apple-hummus wraps.

I frequently make them for myself for lunch.

Spread a wrap with hummus, top with shredded carrots, spinach and apple, then wrap it up tight.

Today I did a variation on that.

I added lots of spinach to my usual hummus recipe and used it as a dip for all the other components.

Add a apple, orange, blueberry and spinach juice and there's lunch.
