Healthy School/Work Friendly Recipe Series #5:
This recipe is one of the quickest grab n' go lunches that I use. It's easy to make ahead. In fact make a bunch, keep in the fridge for you and the kiddos to grab throughout the week! I also love to incorporate my favorite flavors into my meals. I love anything tex mex or southwest inspired. Basically taco nights are a must in my house.
That is why I came up with this Southwest Turkey Wrap. Its packed with lean protein ( turkey and uncured turkey bacon), healthy fats ( avocado), veggies, and spritzed with fresh lime juice to add some flavor and preserves the avocado!
To complete this lunch add some fresh fruit and veggies! I love grapes and I love dipping radishes in a mix of plain greek yogurt and dill.
I hope this wrap makes it to your weekly lunch menu!
Yields 1 wrap ( duplicate if you want to make in bulk)
1 low carb wrap
3 oz of deli turkey meat
2 slices of turkey bacon ( cooked- I microwave mine, or you can bake it) ( I used Jennieo's uncured turkey bacon)
2 tbs corn
½ small avocado
2 tbs diced red onion
2 tbs tortilla strips
1 tbs chopped green onion
1 teaspoon of lime juice
Lay out tortilla, spread avocado out, then layer turkey, turkey bacon, corn, red onion, tomatoes, and tortilla strips.
Then spritz with fresh lime juice.
I paired mine with 1 cup of green grapes and ½ cup of radishes with greek yogurt and dill dip.
