A healthy wrap from this Atlanta eatery will help you survive the holidays

Dish of the Week: Dat Ish Wrap at Tassili’s Raw Reality

As the holiday season begins in earnest, try to think of the big family meals like marathons. You’ll be putting unusual stress on your system, so it’s important to bracket those big events with warmup and cool-down routines. In order to strike a balance with the large portions of rich food you’ll likely eat, load up on raw vegetables in the days before and after the big meal. If that doesn’t sound appetizing, allow me to introduce you to Tassili’s Raw Reality. 

Eating a lot of raw vegetables might seem like a chore, but most dishes at Tassili’s quickly will neutralize any of your complaints — especially the Dat Ish Wrap. Based on the restaurant’s original kale salad, available mild or spicy, this massive wrap feels almost like a cheat meal.

Worried that your veggies will be bland? This is one of the most intensely flavored wraps or burritos you’ll find in Atlanta. Order it spicy at your own risk — a concentrated dressing of soy and cayenne pepper packs a huge punch. 

Concerned you won’t feel satisfied? This wrap really does belong in the burrito category, thanks to its sheer size. Battered mushrooms and avocado also add heft and richness to the package. The ingredients read like a salad, but the Dat Ish Wrap eats more like a Homewrecker from Moe’s.

Tassili’s Raw Reality does raw food right, delivering huge portions and intense flavors that you might find yourself craving later. Plus, giving yourself a massive dose of healthy vegetables like kale, tomatoes, avocado and mushrooms will give your digestive system something to be thankful for during the holidays.
