Make It A BETTER Wrap! A simple solution for a healthy, on-the-go lunch!
Hey friends! It has been too long . . .busy, busy and whenever I see that Care.com commercial where the mom says to herself that she needs two (or more) of herself, some days I wish that was me, ha! Well, that was the perfect introduction (and solution) for today’s post! Making a simple satisfying lunch in just seconds with whatever you have on hand in your frig. Sometimes I even make multiple wraps at one time just so I have something to eat that is filling in a hurry. I will say it again, a little time prepping and planning healthy foods will help keep you on track. Here is a super healthy on-the-go meal or even snack that will fill you up and keep you energized for the day!
Here are simple examples of how to make the perfect wrap – use whatever foods you may enjoy!
My favorite tortillas are Tumaro’s. They are whole grain, high in fiber, high in protein, low in sodium and let’s face it they don’t taste like cardboard. My kids, yes I said it, my kids will even gobble them up, hooray! They also have a Deli-Style wrap that is slightly bigger and about 80 calories, actually it is huge and the family and I usually split them when I make quesadillas. Let’s take a closer look at the sodium, very low for a tortilla. Many tortillas have at least 300 milligrams of sodium. The first three ingredients are water, oat fiber and whole wheat flour. I find these at my Hy-Vee HealthMarket, just ask for them if you can’t find them!
Here is a yummy Greek yogurt-style dressing that I really enjoy and finally a dressing without sugar, ugh! I get it, sugar makes everything taste better but come on . . . even in ranch dressing? I find this in the produce section with the refrigerated dressings.
A simple wrap that can be altered to your specific likings. For the fresh veggies I use anything I have in the frig- sliced carrots, mushrooms, onions and peppers. If you want to use guacamole or hummus just spread on tortilla and top with protein and veggies.
Here are the simple steps to make a wrap. I just love it because I can make it in seconds and throw it in a bag for our picnics, can’t wait for summer! Trick is to put wax paper down first and begin the layers! Once finished, I wrap the entire wrap (with wax paper) in foil. I usually add an
boring apple to the meal and I am stuffed!
Maybe you think this is boring because it is so simple but sometimes we make things too difficult and think healthy food 1) will not taste good 2) too hard to make – hopefully this debunks these myths.
Later for now! DD
