I hope everyone had a relaxing Labor Day weekend, I sure did! Yesterday my sister, Leslie, and her boyfriend came over for a pool day and we did some grilling. We made hamburgers for the guys, turkey burgers for the girls, grilled corn, and veggie kabobs with bell peppers, yellow squash and zucchini. Everything tasted amazing! We used the community grill by the pool for the first time. I wish we had one on our apartment balcony but our balcony is too small. Someday when we get a house, a grill will be the first thing we buy!
Today I wanted to share a SUPER easy lunch idea that would be great for a child’s lunch or an adult’s! I brought these with me all last week. I made six rolls ahead of time and packed them in individual containers for my lunches. It was so easy to grab a container and a piece of fruit and go!
For these wraps, I used the 90-calorie “Flat-Out Light Wraps”. They’re high in fiber, protein and low in calories! You could also use whole-wheat tortillas or gluten free tortillas. You could switch up the fillings as well– I used garden veggie cream cheese, spinach and swiss cheese. But you could use regular cream cheese, lettuce, carrots, kale, cheddar, muenster, any combination you want!
To get the wrap to stick together, you first spread the cream cheese all over the wrap. Then you layer on your fillings on one half. When you roll, start from the side with all the fillings. The side with the empty cream cheese will help it stick together.
Here’s the recipe! Happy rolling!
- 1 Flat-Out Light wrap
- Fresh spinach
- Garden vegetable cream cheese
- Swiss cheese
- Spread the cream cheese onto the wrap.
- Add spinach, leaving three inches at the end of the wrap.
- Layer the turkey and swiss on top of the spinach.
- Beginning at the side with the turkey, roll tightly.
- Use a serrated knife to slice into 1-inch pieces.
