I said in my last post, Lunch Crunch, planning ahead is crucial to eating healthy during meal time at work. As an itinerant teacher moving from school to school each day, I utilize my lunchmate cooler. Many times I am packing my leftovers from meals made the night before, but occassionally I have to result to cold cuts - hence my veggie and cold cut wraps.
I make these in the morning before heading out. Put them in the cooler with some Special K Cracker Chips and I'm good to go for a light lunch!
Ole Spinach tortilla wrap - (75 calories)
Fat Free Ham (I use DAK ham from Sam's Club) 30 calories per slice (1-2 slices)
2 - 3 Baby Carrots sliced and quartered length-wise
1 Tbsp. sliced green onion
A few banana pepper slices
1 wedge of Laughing Cow Light Swiss cheese (35 calories)
1 Tbsp red onion, chopped
2 leaves of Romaine lettuce
Horseradish mustard by French's (or your brand)
3-4 grape tomatoes sliced in half
|Start with the ham, it will keep the wrap from getting to moist|
|This mustard is perfect for wraps, but use your favorite mustard|
|Ready to "Roll 'Em Up!"|
Wrap it in plastic wrap and pack it in the cooler. Don't forget to pack your Cracker Chips and a piece of fruit for a snack and you're ready to roll in ten minutes or so.
(* Sometimes I make two and put one in the fridge to save time for the NEXT morning.)
