WAKEY WAKEY HYDROGEL EYE PATCHES

“Brightens and firms for a youthful looking under-eye!” Say no more! Indeed, these patches boast caffeine, vitamin C, and hyaluronic acid, which add up to a quick fix after clicking one too many “Next episode” prompts on Netflix. (Guilty as charged!)

CREPINI EGG WHITE WRAPS

Don’t blow your early-morning workout by coming home and eating a bad breakfast. Instead, make a smart choice by reaching for a Crepini protein-rich alternative to a regular wrap. With lots of gluten-free, low-cholesterol, and low-carb options, these 40-calorie egg white wraps can be eaten cold or warm and as part of your favorite recipe. Here’s one for you to try out:

 VEGAN AVOCADO “TOAST”

• 2 Crepini Eggless Wraps 

• 4 slices tomato

• ½ avocado, sliced thin

• 1 tbsp pickled onions

• Drizzle olive oil

• Flake salt, to taste

• Ground black pepper, to taste

• Crushed red pepper flakes, to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

2. Place the Crepinis on a baking sheet. Fold two sides toward the center to create a rectangular shape and then flip them over to create a flat surface. 

3. Brush the tops lightly with olive oil.

4. Place in oven and bake until slightly crisp, about 5 minutes. 

5. Top with sliced tomato, avocado, pickled onions, a drizzle of olive oil, flake salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes. Serve warm.
