8 High-Protein Wraps for a Quick & Easy Lunch
Lunchtime can sometimes be difficult, whether you're at work with a short lunch break, at home doing errands or watching the kids, or at school trying to study. Instead of driving to the fast food joint just around the corner or starving yourself, here are 8 high-protein wraps that take only a few minutes to make and are super portable so you can make them in advance and take them on the go!
These wraps are designed to include a mix of carbs, protein, and fats to keep you full. Fill up a whole grain tortilla, a collard or lettuce leaf, or even a slice of pita with veggies and protein, roll it up, pack it in tinfoil, throw it in your bag, and be on your merry way. Note: Hold off on adding wet ingredients like dressing until you're ready to eat, otherwise your wraps will get soggy.
