Breakfast and Lunch Wraps

wrap

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get bored of eating rice and noodles (if you are an Asian and are reading this post, I believe you understand what I am talking about) and are lazy to prepare anything fancy. If you can relate to me, yay! Rice and noodle rice and noodle all week, how boring. Anyway, one day when I was watching The Domestic Geek on Youtube (p/s : do subscribe to her channel for more amazing healthy goodness!), I came across a video where she had a few recipes on wraps and ever since, I thank God for this as I could finally have another alternative for my lunch (aiyoh I know I am exaggerating hehe).

Wraps are so SO SO easy to prepare, where it doesn’t require complicated ingredients or steps to prepare. It only takes you 5-10 minutes where you just put in a few ingredients of your choice and start rolling up the wrap. In addition, they are healthy to consume (depending on the ingredients that you put in). My personal favourite is fresh vegetables with a few pieces of meat (ham/chicken breast, tunas or any lean meats).  Anyway, wraps are one of my favourite go-to when I don’t intend to eat any carbohydrates (rice/noodles) and are in need of a quick and simple lunch (or even for breakfast and dinner).  Here are what it takes to prepare this recipe :

Instead of heading out to purchase your lunch which contains lots of MSG’s or other unhealthy ingredients such as preservatives, why not head out to your nearest grocery store to purchase these few simple ingredients to make this wrap? If you are wondering, how healthy can this wrap be, let me explain to you that by making this recipe, you can gain many health benefits as the benefits of eating greeneries such as carrot, tomato, and lettuce can access to vitamin A,tuna which acts as a great source of omega-3 fatty acid which combats inflammation and lowers the chance of cardiovascular disease and vitamin K that can be obtained from the mayonnaise. Hence, by consuming these greeneries and lean protein, it overall helps in losing weight.
