With my busy schedule I find that by the time lunch rolls around, I'm feeling less than energetic. I have that early morning boost from my iced coffee or macchiato, but I try to avoid relying on caffeine to get me through a long day. That's why I love a fresh lunch that is packed with protein and fresh vegetables. Having a healthy lunch is just as good as any caffeine. A nutritional energy boost is much better than a sugary one, and we all know that.
A good sandwich wrap is a fresh lunch that leaves you satisfied and refreshed. You can use your favorite salad dressing on these, but I like to use greek yogurt mixed with lemon and pepper to give this wrap a low calorie kick. It's a lunch that you can look forward to everyday. Plus, you can prepare your grilled chicken earlier in the week to make this a super fast creation.
Different cheeses can be used here, as well as different wraps, like a spinach tortilla. If you'd like a warm version of this rolled up lunch, throw it on the grill for a seared outside and warmed interior. This is great paired with some fresh fruit on the side, like an apple a cup of peaches. I really love how fast and versatile these can be, not to mention that they are on the healthy side of the lunch table.
