The Best Lunch Wraps
If you’re someone that feels like lunchtime is one of the pitfalls of the day when it comes to healthy eating, then it’s time to turn to lunch wraps! Wraps are the perfect option because they are so easy to make, grab, and go. You can even prepare them a few days ahead of time to save even more time during the week.
These Italian tuna wraps are a quick, healthy, and delicious way to fill up on protein, fiber, and healthy fats to get you through the afternoon. You can even take the filling out of the wrap and serve it over a bed of lettuce or with crackers if that better suits your preferences.
If you’re meal prepping, we suggest prepping the filling at the start of the week, then assembling your wrap when you’re about to eat just to make sure the tortilla doesn’t get soggy.
Tuna: The Perfect Protein for Lunches
Tuna is a secret superfood. High in protein, omega-3’s and essential vitamins, this ready-to-eat fish is the perfect ingredient to help you reach your health goals with just the easiest meal prep. Research shows certain components in tuna can benefit cardiovascular health, eye function, and bone health. Once you get to the canned food aisle, we suggest going for chunk light tuna in water for the best option. It will be the lowest in mercury and fat.
