Easy Wrap Lunchbox

Do busy workdays keep you from eating a healthy lunch? Have no fear - check out this no cook, quickly prepped lunch that contains over half of your daily fiber.


HINT: the higher the fiber, the more stable your blood sugar.


I'll show you how to create this simple wrap, and choose optimal pairings to promote fullness and blood sugar stability. For this lunchbox, I've added edamame and grapes on the side (but any choice of fruit will do).


NOTE: Choose high fiber, low calorie tortillas. You'll find a couple options for these at your grocery store, but here are a couple of my faves: La Tortilla Factory, Ole "high fiber, carb lean". Mine have only 50 calories per tortilla, 15 grams of carbohydrate, and 11 grams of fiber, giving them a minimal effect on blood sugar.


Now, to the recipe. For 2 servings, you'll need:


  • 1/2 cucumber

  • 1 large carrot, peeled

  • 2 C spinach

  • 8 Tbsp whipped cream cheese (can use hummus instead)

  • 2 10-in high fiber tortillas

  • 1 C edamame

  • 1 C grapes


  1. First, thinly slice the cucumber and use a veggies peeler to make thin strips of carrot.

  2. Steam the edamame in the microwave for 5 minutes (or according to package directions).

  3. Spread 4 Tbsp cream cheese (or hummus if you prefer) on each tortilla. Lay half the carrots, cucumbers, and 1 C of spinach on each. (Want to add extra protein? Throw in a serving of low sodium sliced deli turkey, and cheese.)

  4. Roll into a tight wrap and stick 3 toothpicks through to stabilize. Cut into 3 sections. (HINT: if you're in a real hurry and don't feel like cutting, its good as a full wrap too! Even if it's less "pretty")


Add to a plate or lunchbox container with 1/2 C grapes and 1/2 C steamed edamame.
