Yummy Wraps

Lately my lunches have consisted of wraps. After "discovering" Alvarado St. Bakery Sprouted Wheat Tortillas, I can't get enough of them. Here are some of my wrap ingredients (they change a bit every day, and I never include all of them in one wrap):
  • 1 Sprouted Wheat Tortilla
  • Hummus
  • Cheese - I got some great raw cheeses with herbs in the "Bits & Pieces" basket at Whole Foods
  • Lots and lots of spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Thin cucumber slices
  • Salsa
  • Avocado
  • Organic Chicken - only once in a while
  • Organic Roast Beef - only once in a while
Here are some pictures of a recent wrap. I ate it with a sliced, organic yellow heirloom tomato on the side.

Questions: Do you like wraps? If so, what are some of your favorite things you like to "wrap up?"

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. :o)

Be well,


  1. yummy wraps, I I would put cheese and cucumber, hummus is also good oh and nutella and banana he he

  2. I love wraps! I was tempted to make a wrap today. Now I wish I did. But there's always tomorrow, right? hehe...

    I LOVE wraps! Seriously- I could eat them every day :) favourites are grilled chicken, salad and tzatziki, and felafel, spinach and laughing cow cheese grilled on my George Foreman. So many possibilities!

  4. I've heard so much about that Alvarado brand lately! I really want to try them. I do love wraps but I have found that I really need to bulk them up or I won't get full. I like hummus, grilled veggies, and a little cheese...always a good combo!

  5. I do enjoy wraps! Since I bring my lunch everyday I try and think of new things so I don't get bored with it. Hummus wraps in a whole wheat tortilla are one a favorite!

  6. Cheese, hummus, avocado, these are all great additions to a wrap!! Wraps are my all time favorite "got to easy food". I love wraps of all kinds, but especially those with the three ingredients I mentioned, plus lots of veggies, tuna/turkey or just vegetarian! Mmm...I want one now!! Your wrap looks perfect.

  7. I like wraps for sure! I always pair them up with something else because they seem to take no time to eat.

  8. YUM! I love love love wraps. I like throwing in tons of lettuce, crumbled boca and some hot sauce!

  9. I love wraps! My favorite right now is brown rice, to which I add whatever fresh veggies I have. So yummy, and really filling!

    Unfortunately, only the 5 oldest like it, so I have to make the littlest people wraps with cheese!

  10. Big fan of wraps, too! I really like wrapping up roast beef and spinach with a little spread of cream cheese mixed with some Herbes de Provence. Thanks for sharing your healthy version-- looking forward to trying it out.

    I love wraps, but they always fall apart! I love them with guac, roasted red peppers, goat cheese, tomatoes, and Frank's hot sauce!

    I need to find those Alvarado St. wraps. I usually make my own spelt tortillas, but would love to find a tasty quick fix :)

    I like all of the above that you mentioned, haha. Basically, stuffed to the brim with veggies and some sort of spread like hummus, cream cheese, or dip. Yum!

    Love wraps!! Mine are usually filled with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, cheese, leftover meat if we have any, and renews Greek dressing... Yum! I'm all out of wraps... now I want one! Lol!!!

  14. i love the alvarado street products too - i recently just discovered them at my co-op. i love wraps, and i started grilling them too ever since i saw that on the blogs!

  15. I like pitas but have never been fond of the texture of wraps. I find them kinda gummy. But I love all the fillings you've listed. My favorite is a pita stuffed with lots of great raw vegetables.

  16. I love wraps with tomatoes and cheese...and chocolate! :-D

  17. Those wraps look so yummy! I've always wanted to try them, but never really been adventurous enough.

  18. Mmmm delicious. I love wraps. I like having hummus and cream cheese in there because they melt together nicely. And a couple apple or mango slices really jazzes it up!

    I do like wraps! It's been a while since I've had one. Stuff any veggies into a wrap and it's hard to go wrong. ;)

    I don't think I've ever had an heirloom tomato! Totally yellow!

  20. I love wraps. You've got me thinking I need to go get some brown rice tortillas to make these happen.
