Try This High Protein Lunch Option…
If you need a healthy lunch on the go, this recipe will fit the bill perfectly.
Turkey is an excellent source of lean protein and with the added vegetables, you’ll be feeling satisfied until late afternoon.
Spinach provides a wealth of nutrition including a number of antioxidants as well as vitamin K, folic acid, iron, and B vitamins.
The whole wheat wrap also adds some complex carbohydrates, making this a perfect snack to have when you have a busy day ahead.
It’ll keep you well energized, but you won’t have to worry about crashing a few hours post-meal.
Finally apples add some extra sweetness and crunch, while also adding more fibre to this recipe.
Apples contain a special type of fibre called pectin, which is especially good for combating hunger.
If desired, feel free to add some walnuts or slivered almonds if you wish to increase the fat content of this recipe.
Likewise, if you happen to be using a gluten free or low carb diet plan, you can instead use lettuce wraps with this recipe or boil some collard greens and use them as the wrap instead.
Doing so will decrease the calorie content, while also adding additional antioxidants.
