Wrapping Up a Healthy Lunch

There are a lot of healthy lunch recipes some are easy to make but some take time. The stress and workload of the day has you working and thinking about due dates, and that leaves no room for lunch. If you work you know how hard it is to get good nutrition.This is why people are always searching for a lunch that is satisfying and inexpensive.

Eating out at fast food places or restaurants can be costly and sometimes unsatisfying. Most fast food places have the same food, the only difference is the taste and ingredients. Did you know that one fast food meal contains enough calories for the entire day? This is not a good thing because you will get hungry more than once, and by eating two or more of these types of meals a day, you will easily double or triple your calorie intake. This will cause health problems such as obesity, cholesterol, and diabetes.

Restaurants have been know to make some healthy and delicious food. The thing about these delicious plates is that they cost about the same as one weeks worth of lunch. Some of those dishes consist of fresh and healthy ingredients, but if they are not small in portion, they will be expensive for you to sustain this type of eating.

I've dug around in internet forums pertaining to healthy eating, and I notice that a lot of people are looking for that quick satisfying lunch recipe that you will love and wont get tired of. Besides being a good "eater" I also enjoy cooking, lately I have been packing a simple to make lunch for my husband to take to work. Introducing the wrap which has been around for a while because they make great lunches. You can make the wrap using any type of flat bread or lettuce leafs for a healthier lunch.

One great thing about the wrap is that just like a sandwich you can make it out of anything.The Mozzarella Wrap got my attention because it only consist of two main ingredients and it looks delicious. Another thing that I liked about the wrap is the way its wrapped, you don't need a fork or spoon to eat and you don't have to worry about spilling. Wraps can also be eaten either cold or you can grill it. The best thing about them is they only take about five minutes to make. You can take the ingredients to work and make your lunch at the office without having to go anywhere (besides the kitchen, of course).

When you work in an office you don't have time to go and buy lunch. Fast food places aren't very healthy and restaurants can take a long time to serve. This is why I think that wraps make a great healthy lunch recipe. At the bottom you will find the recipe to the Mozzarella Wrap, and don't be afraid to add any ingredients of your own. Have fun with your lunch that's what eating healthy is all about. Now go and wrap yourself more healthy lunch recipes! :)

Tomato and Mozzarella Wrap

  • 1 whole wheat flour tortilla
  • 2 teaspoons onion cream cheese or mayonnaise (You can add as desired)
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach, torn
  • Tomatoes, sliced
  • Fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced

Place the tortilla on a plate or flat surface. Spread some cream cheese or mayo on the tortilla. Place some slices of tomato, mozzarella and spinach in the center of the tortilla. Now wrap it all up into a burrito.

The delicious part of it all is you can either eat it cold, grilled, or heated in the microwave.
