How in the world is it back to school season already?!?!??? Seriously, I can hardly believe it… I just graduated!! While I sit here trying to figure out where the summer went, you should get to packing lunches with my go-to Hummus Wrap.
I don’t know why I’ve never posted this recipe… I guess because it’s not so much of a recipe, but a ridiculously quick way to get tasty calories into my cranky mouth or empty lunchbox.
I’m sure I’m not alone in this but there is no such thing as hungry in my life. It’s either HANGRY or stuffed from overeating…. I’m not good at detecting that “hmmm I should probably eat soon” sensation. In fact, John has been known to make me one of these when I didn’t even realize I was hungry.
“What is this?”
“A snack, you’re hungry.”
“No I’m…. Oh man this is delicious!”
Yes. Hummus wraps are my Snickers bars. I get a little crazy without them.
If you’ll note, I mentioned that John sometimes makes me this. Aka it’s not hard. [Sorry honey.] It’s not that he can’t cook, he just prefers the zero-effort meals.
Can we talk about tortillas just really quick?? When you’re picking out a tortilla, PLEASE be aware of the crazy claims some make. Just because it says “low carb” doesn’t mean it’s not packed with preservatives, artificial ingredients, and/or other unhealthy additives. Alyssia’s video is super helpful! In my opinion, calories and carbs aren’t nearly as important as real, whole ingredients so I always choose Food for Life’s Sprouted Whole Grain Tortillas.
These wraps are as delicious as they are easy and couldn’t be healthier! What more could you want for a school lunchbox?! Ok, maybe a few more weeks of summer…
Back to school is here and this Hummus Wrap is my go-to lunch box staple! Sometimes simple is best!
- 1 Whole Grain wrap
- 2 Tbs. hummus
- 3 Tbs. chopped carrots
- 3 Tbs. chopped cucumbers
- 3 Tbs. chopped tomatoes
- ¼ red pepper, sliced or chopped
- ¼ cup arugula or spinach
- Prepare all veggies- they can be chopped into small pieces or shredded into long strands.
- Lightly heat tortilla in pan or microwave to soften it. (Not necessary but can be helpful for rolling.)
- Starting with hummus, layer ingredients into tortilla. Fold over sides and roll wrap up. Enjoy!
