How To Make A Healthy Wrap
Up your lunchbox game this week with our fuller-for-longer hunger beater
The humble tortilla wrap can hold more filling than a regular sarnie but contains far fewer calories (depending on what you put in it, of course). The wholewheat version in this Greek-inspired recipe ups the health stakes by providing a hefty hit of low-GI slow-release carbohydrates, which will keep you feeling full for longer and help you avoid the temptation to snack in the afternoon. As one of the leanest, protein-packed meats available, the chicken in this wrap is also ideal for fat loss.
1 wholewheat tortilla
1 chicken breast
Handful of spinach leaves
½ a beef tomato, sliced
Pinch of tarragon
1tsp olive oil
Pinch of sweet paprika
¼tsp Worcestershire sauce
How To Make It
Step 1: Season the chicken breast with the oil and tarragon.
Step 2: Cut it into cubes and place them under a medium grill. Turning regularly until cooked through.
Step 3: Mix the mustard, mayo, paprika and Worcestershire to make a sauce.
Step 4: Place the wrap under the grill for 30 seconds each side.
Step 5: Spread the sauce over the wrap, fill it with the chicken, spinach and tomato and then wrap.
