Roast Beef Sammy-Wrap!
 
Mission Carb Balance Tortilla
A Smidge of low fat Mayo
1 slice Provolone Cheese
Deli Roast Beef
Kale
Tomatoes
Italian Seasoning
 
Place your SMIDGE (dont go overboard people!!) of Mayo on the Tortilla, your slice of Provolone, and your Roast Beef Meat.  Pop it into the Microwave for 20 seconds to heat meat and melt cheese.  Throw a couple pieces of fresh Kale on your wrap, along with sliced grape tomatoes, and a shake of Italian Herbs.  
-Feel free to add more of your favorite vegetables on top!  Green peppers? Mushrooms?
yum.....This was my go-to lunch this week!!!
 
 
the..."FOOL your MAN" Healthy Burrito:
I love love love Chipotle - I get the salad bowl - but the man gets the burrito and while its still better than the "Golden Arches" - just the burrito tortilla wrap alone packs 290 calories - 44g of Carbs, and only 2g of Fiber -- and we havent even stuffed it with goodness yet!!  I made this and snuck it into the lunchbox...He LOVED it!
 
Joseph's Flax Oat Bran & Whole Wheat Lavash Bread Wrap (find it at Walmart)
(this has 100 calories per full wrap, only 14 g of Carbs, and 6g of Fiber, 5g of Protein!)
Mushrooms
Green Pepper
Mined Garlic
Chicken Strips  (if your in a rush, plan ahead and buy Tyson's Grilled and Ready strips)
Kale
Brown Rice
Cilantro
Shredded Cheese
 
Saute Garlic, Green Pepper, Mushrooms and Chicken Strips.  Heat Tortilla.  Place small amount of Brown Rice first, then layer Kale, Veggies and Chicken.  Top with Cilantro and Shredded Cheese.
 
*first time I made this - I packed it to full and ripped thru the wrap -- go light for a quick lunch - OR if you want that massive burrito size, double up on the wrap so it doesn't break! You're still 90 cal's short of Chipotle, and a massive amount of carbs down!!
 
 
Fruit Skewers with Dip (makes 4 cups of dip)
 
Arrange cut fruit pieces onto wooden skewers, alternating fruit types
