Simple Ingredients for Making Healthy Wraps
- Lean protein – Boneless skinless chicken breast or rotisserie chicken, ground turkey, ground chicken, tuna, eggs, tofu, etc.
- Fresh vegetables – Bell peppers, cucumbers, spinach leaves, romaine lettuce, red onions, pickles, carrots, celery, etc.
- Sauces – avocado oil mayo, hummus, tzatziki sauce, Dijon mustard, BBQ sauce, peanut sauce, buffalo sauce, Greek yogurt, creamy avocado sauce, etc.
- Wraps – whole wheat tortillas, lettuce leaves, spinach wrap, grain-free tortillas, flour tortillas, egg tortilla wraps, etc.
- Other add-ins – avocado slices, olives, feta cheese, cheddar cheese, black beans, bacon, roasted sweet potatoes, cream cheese and fresh herbs.
How to Build Healthy Wraps
- Choose your wrap – use tortillas or keep it low carb by using lettuce leaves (romaine and Bibb lettuce are great for this!) or collard wraps.
- Choose your protein – for example, cook a big batch of shredded chicken. Or skip the meat for vegan and vegetarian wraps, using tofu, chickpeas, or veggies only.
- Choose your add-ins – crunchy fresh veggies, apples, fresh greens, nuts, and olives are all good choices for adding extra crunch, flavor, and nutritional value.
- Choose a sauce – bring it all together with a flavorful sauce, mayo, dressing (try this favorite Sesame Ginger dressing), or condiment of your choice.
Meal Prep Tips for Making Lunch Wraps
If making wraps ahead for lunches, follow these basic steps and suggestions:
- Make larger batches of each ingredient to use throughout the week, i.e. one big batch of hard-boiled eggs and a batch of Homemade Mayo for egg salad wraps.
- Prepare ingredients, keeping them in separate containers until ready to eat. Assemble wraps the morning of or at lunchtime to prevent sogginess.
- Try these glass meal prep containers for packing lunches with separate compartments for your wrap and filling.
- Save time and use leftover ingredients (such as leftover chicken.)
How to Assemble Wraps (Tips for Rolling Wraps)
- Lay your wrap on a flat surface and place the filling down the center. Do not overfill or the wrap will be difficult to roll.
- Larger wraps (burrito-sized) are preferable to smaller taco/fajita sized tortillas because they hold more filling and are easier to roll.
- When using lettuce leaves as a wrap, choose a sturdy variety that will not fall apart when filling is added – Bibb lettuce and romaine lettuce are my favorites for this.
- To roll, fold in the short ends, then roll the wrap tightly, using your fingers to keep the ends and sides tucked in as you roll.
- Secure the wrap with a toothpick or use plastic wrap to keep the wrap held together.
