Making Healthy Wraps during a corporate cooking demo


We started with the covering.  We chose from a flour tortilla, habenaro lime tortilla or lettuce.  I recommend that if you are dealing with diabetes, pre-diabetes or weight loss the lettuce is the best option.

 


 

 

Next we prepare the tortilla by using a condiment to help seal the tortilla.  We chose between hummus dip or white bean dip.  We placed the dip on at least half but you can put around the entire perimeter of the tortilla.

 


 

Now we are ready to add our vegetables to the wrap. You can add your favorite vegetables or leftovers from the night before.    Make sure you only add a few tablespoons of each vegetable because you don't want to overfill your wrap.
 



 

Finally you want to add a protein source.  You will add 3-5 pieces of your favorite type of meat, poultry or vegetarian option.  In this case I used a vegetarian option, Falafel, which is made with chickpeas.

 




Now that you finished filling your wrap you are ready to wrap it up!  Take the sides and fold them towards the middle.  Make sure the dip is at the top of wrap it will be used to seal the sandwich.
 

 

 

Once you have folded the sides you will roll the wrap towards the side of the tortilla with the dip on it.  The middle of the wrap will fill really full but just keep rolling the wrap.

 



 

 



The final step is to close and seal the wrap.  You are done.  Your wrap is sealed and you are ready drop in your wrap into your lunch bag or for a snack.


 

 

 

 

 

 

You are done!  A couple of them are a great lunch or snack on the go!
