Leading a busy life shouldn’t be an excuse for an unhealthy lifestyle. Many of us find it difficult to eat healthy when there are so many unhealthy choices out there and so many excuses to hit your favorite fast food drive through.
Wraps can be a delicious and healthy alternative when you need a quick meal. There are tons of wrap recipes out there for breakfast, lunch and dinner that can be made with minimal effort. They’re also a great way to get those extra veggie servings in, especially for kids or picky eaters. Try a few of these delicious wrap recipes to get started!
Tangy veggie wrap – This wrap from HurryTheFoodUp is packed with protein and veggies giving you the fuel you need for your busy life. Lemon, ginger and a little Dijon mustard provide the unique flavor.
Peanut butter banana wrap – This wrap from My Recipes is an excellent choice for a grab and go breakfast or as an alternative to your average PB&J lunch. Adding some fresh berries or substituting them for the dried apricots is a good way to up the antioxidants.
Turkey sausage mango wrap – Another yummy meal from My Recipes. The sweetness of mango goes wonderfully with turkey or chicken, making this a low-fat, low-calorie meal with plenty of flavor.
Quinoa veggie wrap – This vegan wrap from The Nutty Scoop is very simple and would be a good use for extra quinoa if you have it leftover from another meal.
Pineapple chicken salad wrap – From Skinny Mom, this recipe makes enough for the entire family and it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. Substituting Greek yogurt for half of the mayo results in lower fat and calories than traditional chicken salad.
Grilled zucchini hummus wrap – There’s just something about grilling veggies that makes them extra delicious. This recipe from Maebells adds hummus for protein to satisfy your appetite.
One of the best things about wraps is that they are versatile. You can modify them to fit almost anyone’s tastes or nutritional needs. If you suffer from a gluten-allergy or intolerance, use gluten-free, whole grain, multi-grain, or vegetable based wraps, such as spinach or tomato. You can even use a lettuce leaf to wrap up your fillings. If you have difficulty digesting dairy, simply cut the cheese from your wraps.
These six wrap recipes can certainly help you eat healthy, but that’s only part of living a healthy lifestyle. Hiring a personal trainer can be a good idea to keep on track with your health and fitness goals.
