Spinach Lunch Wrap

Okay, I don't have a picture of this one yet, but I couldn't bring myself to post a dinner recipe after breakfast without having lunch :)

This wrap is surprisingly my seven year old's favorite sandwich for school lunch, I must be doing something right. It is packed with things that are great for you. With three servings of veggies, some protein and a serving of whole grains you can high five the food pyramid chart and stick your tongue out at the bathroom scale. Eat it with a side of fruit... maybe an apple and color yourself healthy today!


We use the 90 calories whole grain flat wraps, but you can use any soft tortilla.
1-2 Tablespoons hummus - Excellent source of fiber and protein and SOOOO tasty.
1/2 tomato
1/2 cucumber
1 cup raw baby spinach - A great superfood full of iron!


Wash your veggies well. Chop your tomato and cucumber into average sized chunks. Spread hummus onto the wrap. Lay spinach in the middle of the wrap and top with chopped veggies. Wrap it up all pretty like and eat or send it to school/work for lunch.

*When making the night before for a lunch I seed the tomato so the wrap doesn't get soggy overnight.
