Greek Veggie Wraps


Even though I stay-at-home with Jack now instead of teaching, I still find myself scrambling for lunch ideas that aren't a sandwich.  James often takes leftovers to work with him so that is usually not option for me.

I almost always end up eating a sandwich but that gets boring so quickly.  I was browsing through lunch ideas that I'd pinned over time and came across this wrap.  I had major grocery shopping to do so I added them to my menu for the week and picked up what I need to make them happen.

These will definitely change up a boring lunch routine in a hurry as they are packed with bright flavors that made me actually want to eat lunch.  I love anything that is Greek inspired but the options are really and truly endless.  I love that this is a meatless meal but is hearty enough to keep this pregnant lady full for a long time. :)  Definitely a great addition to your lunch repertoire.

Wraps are one of those things that I never think to eat, but when ever I do I think, "Why don't I eat these more often!?" These sound especially delicious!

I have to agree that eating sandwiches gets very boring. There are only so many ways you can change up turkey and cheese or even ham and cheese to make it taste good. These wraps looked great from the picture and when I saw what was in them I was even more happy. I love that these are so healthy and of course that you can easily adapt them to everyone's likes and dislikes.
