Salmon “Everything But the Bagel” Collard Wraps

Hey there!

I'm Tina

Hi, guys! Happy Monday!

Today is totally getting away from me. It’s been a busy – yet productive – day, so no complaints, but, whoa, the day has really flown by.

My morning started bright and early with some work followed (almost immediately) by a glass of iced coffee with chocolate peanut milk and a rice cake with peanut butter and banana slices on top.

Quinn slept until almost 6:45 AM (!!), so I (mostly) had my act together by the time he woke up. I planned to run at the gym, so I was already dressed and ready to go.

Once Qman and I had a chance to cuddle on the couch and let him wake up a little, I got him ready to go to school. We had all sorts of things to bring with us to the car, so asked Quinn if he could help me. His response: “I can’t. I have too much in my hands.”

Please note what he had in his hands…

This kid kills me. So funny! Almost 4 is definitely my favorite age!

After dropping Quinn off at school, I ran 4 miles on the treadmill, which is the farthest I’ve run in quite awhile. Surprisingly, I felt REALLY good. My hip is still a bit wonky, but it’s so much better. And the run was such a nice reminder of how much I love (and missed) running. My goal is to SLOWLY build up to 6 miles for a 10K that I’m running later this spring… and so far, so good!

At the gym, I also made a couple of videos for a booty challenge we’re having this week. If you’re not part of the CNC Community Group yet, be sure to request to join!

After that, I headed to Rosa Farms for a “Tree Chugger,” which is my newest post-gym obsession.

After that, I ran a couple of errands (Target and Trader Joe’s) and then headed home for lunch, which I brainstormed on the drive. (Anyone else do that?) Listen to this delicious combination: Smoked salmon with chopped cucumbers, whipped cream cheese, and Everything But The Bagel Seasoning all wrapped in a big collard leaf.

Omgggg, so good! And it took me like 3 minutes to make.

After lunch, it was right to work for me. Even though I worked in the early-morning hours, I felt really behind!

My stomach just started to grumble, so I made a rice cake with almond butter, collagen, and a little caramel sauce spread mixed together and spread on top. Mmm!

Once I hit publish on this blog post, I’m going to walk Murphy, head BACK to Target to return a faulty product that I purchased, and then pick up Qman from school. What a whirlwind day!

Questions of the Day

Do you like salmon?

What’s your favorite way to eat a rice cake?

Is it spring yet? 

P.S. How adorable is this cozy wrap sweatshirt from Athleta? It popped up in my Facebook feed last night, and it’s only $27.99. I might need it in my life! 😉



  1. Lately I’ve been getting a lot of Athleta in my FB feed as well, but it’s always for Athleta Girl their girls line, and it’s so disappointing because everything is adorable, but tiny.

  2. My go to lately as been avocado spread on a rice cake (like avocado toast) with smoked salmon and everything but the bagel seasoning. Really excited to try your wrap!

  3. Is it weird that I love to eat smoked salmon when I’m at a restaurant or at a bagel shop, but whenever I try to buy it and eat it at home, it kind of creeps me out? I think it’s the sliminess in the package or something- or maybe the stuff I buy in the grocery store isn’t as good quality.

    Also, Quinn totally looks like Mal in that picture where he’s showing you how much he’s holding! Too funny!

    1. I’m usually the same way with salmon! I bought a 4-ounce package from Trader Joe’s and made sure to eat the entire thing in one day because I knew I wouldn’t want to eat it later in the week.
