How ’bout this as a new series? Better yet, how ’bout this for lunch? I figure most of us are not only packing lunch on weekdays, but trying to keep our eats a bit interesting, too. So here’s my contribution to society: filling, super-tasty mid-day meal ideas that are healthy and 400 calories or less. I’m already packing them in Mom’s lunchbox, so why not share them here?
Now, this wrap. Nothing fancy by any means and barely a “recipe,” but still, it’s worthy of sharing. We should start by discussing the wrap itself: Joseph’s Flax, Oat Bran, & Whole Wheat Lavash Bread. Only 100 calories and massive. It’s larger than most standard tortillas, and for a mere fraction of the calories. Let me tell you, it makes for a whopper of a roll-up.
The filling, too, cannot be beat: sliced [all-natural] turkey breast from the deli counter, avocado, bacon, and creamy Laughing Cow cheese in French onion flavor, which I’ve loved forever.
It’s a cinch to throw together and easily portable for on-the-go lunches, but the best part? It’s delicious and filling. The fact that it clocks in at a reasonable 360 calories isn’t too shabby either. Pair it with a cup or two of fresh seasonal fruit or cut-up veggies (broccoli florets, carrot sticks, cucumber slices) for an even more complete meal.
