With a mix of whole grain, protein, fruit and vegetables, this healthy meal idea will energize you for hours to come.
We’ve all been there. Just a few minutes before heading out the door, you remember you haven’t packed lunch. You end up eating fast food for the third day in a row, and are left feeling sluggish.
This healthy meal prep idea is perfect for those busier days — so you can get out the door quickly, without having to sacrifice a nutritious meal. It takes just a few minutes to prepare, and you may already have all of the ingredients in your kitchen.
This plant-based wrap also follows the USDA Choose MyPlate guidelines. The right mix of whole grain, protein, fruit and vegetables make it high in fiber, calcium, iron and potassium. Meeting these dietary needs will keep your energy high, and lower your risks for conditions such as heart disease or diabetes.
Healthy Meal Prep Recipe:
- Spread hummus and white bean spread on a whole grain tortilla
- Add sliced apples and shredded carrots
- Secure the wrap with a toothpick
If you’re packing this wrap for lunch at school or work, we advise packing each ingredient in a separate container then assembling before eating.
