The appeal of wraps is they can be simple, fast and nutritious! Certainly, you can make a wrap as difficult or as easy as you prefer. The more components you have, the more complex the wrap; which may also increase the flavor variation of you meal. In addition, wraps can be put together in minutes. Some may require cooking, which can often be done on a grill to keep you house from heating up. Other wraps may only need assembly and will utilize all fresh ingredients or be a great use for leftovers.
Try to at least incorporate 3 to 4 categories from the food guide pyramid to ensure increased nutrient intake. Plus, try to pick more healthful options from the food pyramid groups you do utilize. For example, using a tortilla will fulfill the bread and grains group, which can be made even more nutritional by using a whole wheat tortilla. Try choosing lean beef, chicken, pork or fish, beans, humus, nuts, seeds, or nut butters for the meat and beans component. Spread on low-fat cream cheese or use 2% milk cheese slices or shredded cheese for a dairy component. And, of course, you can boost the nutritional value of your wrap by adding plenty of fruits and vegetables!
