If you are tired of the same old PB&J or ham and cheese sandwich, why not try a healthy wrap for lunch? If you can find whole wheat lavash bread, that is what I recommend. I get mine at Trader Joe’s. If you can’t find lavash, try to find a whole wheat tortilla with five or less ingredients. Locally made tortillas are usually your best bet. Most store brands have an ingredient list a mile long.
You can make this wrap any way you like. I change it up all the time. The base is the whole wheat wrap and hummus. Spread the hummus on the inside of the wrap, then add whatever you like.
A vegetarian option can look like this:
On this wrap I added lettuce, red bell pepper, shredded carrots, cucumber, white beans and avocado. Stuff as many veggies as you can fit in there! Remember, raw veggies are very low in calories and high in nutrition. Avocados are the exception to that rule, so only use a few slices if you are watching your caloric intake. One avocado = around 290 calories.
If you prefer to have some meat and cheese in your wrap, it might look something like this:
In this wrap, I added lettuce, turkey, cheese and avocado. I would have added more veggies, but I didn’t have any on hand that day.
Add some fresh fruit and sparkling water to your wrap for a fantastic and healthy lunch that is definitely out of the ordinary.
