Happy Saturday, friends! ☀️ What is everyone up to? We were thinking of going to the outlets today, but I think it will be too cold. We might end up baking and doing puzzles instead.
Today I wanted to talk about veggie wraps: one of my favorite healthy and flavorful lunch options. They’re versatile, colorful, and are a great way to use up any leftover produce in the fridge.
The only drawback? Sometimes, they don’t have enough protein. For me, too many carbs and not enough protein at lunch leaves me hungry by mid-afternoon. When I hit that point, I start reaching for the sweets.
But, there are a few ways to add protein to your wraps and make the meal more filling. After you sautée the veggies (I used tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, and onions), finish off the meal with the following ideas.
▪️ Use with a high-protein wrap, such as Mission Foods Plant-Powered Protein Wrap
▪️ Add in a few oz of pre-cooked tofu squares
▪️ Throw in a handful of roasted chickpeas
▪️ Use Swiss cheese, which has a naturally higher protein content than other cheeses
▪️ Serve with a protein shake on the side
