Recipe: Wrap it Up
Many of us think we don’t have time to pack a healthy lunch, so we do one of two things:
- We grab a quick, tasty lunch that’s probably loaded with fat, simple carbs, sodium and other not-so-healthy stuff.
- We go without lunch.
Either way, our afternoon turns into a sleepy, nonproductive mess. What we really need from our lunch is a nutrient-dense meal packed with lean protein, healthy fats and complex carbs, like our tuna wrap. It has bold flavor and fills you up without being too heavy, and its satisfying crunch means you don’t need fatty, salty sides like potato chips. For added nutritional punch, try it with a whole-grain tortilla!
