Lightning McQueen’s Veggie Wheels

Thanks to Disney Magic of Healthy Living for sponsoring this post. Watch their fun for the whole family new video series Dishes Inspired by Disney and click here to get more healthy, magical recipes inspired by your favorite Disney movies.

Watch those wheels speed down the raceway! Those can only be the wheels of Cars’ Lightning McQueen, blurring my vision with a speed so fast it could be called “dizzy!”

I tell myself and my boy if we are going to get through the day we need to fuel up on wholesome foods. I created these veggie wheels in hopes to accomplish just that. The creamy avocado helps hold the whole thing together and keeps it from being dry. Stick a toothpick in each roll to keep the wheels in place. Serve them to the little Lightning McQueen in your house.
