I love this wrap for lunch when I get home from a morning of surfing. It is so simple, filling, and healthy!
I try to eat as little animal-based foods as possible, and legumes (beans such as chickpeas) are a perfect solution to getting protein without eating meat. Hummus is made from chickpeas and it gives you an easily-digested dose of protein, which is vital after every workout. (Chickpeas alone have 6 grams of protein per 1/2 cup, and women need 46 grams a day).
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice brightens this sandwich, and the veggies add a satisfying crunch.
Hummus Wrap with Lemon
- Lavash bread (Trader Joes carries it). I use 3/4 of a piece of this flatbread.
*I’m not the bread police- You can use any kind of wrap or bread that you want. Try to avoid large tortillas, or large wraps marketed for sandwiches. Often times these have a lot of fat and can be upwards of 300 calories. SURPRISE!!
- 1/2 cup hummus
- 1/4 English cucumber, sliced thinly
- 3/4 cup shredded carrot
- 2 Tbs finely chopped red onion
- Squeeze of fresh lemon juice
- Sea Salt
- Freshly ground pepper
Spread hummus on flatbread, and layer with veggies. Squeeze about 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice evenly on veggies, and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
Roll, cut in half and devour because your body needs that protein IMMEDIATELY!!
