What’s the most convenient take-to-work or take-to-school or take-to-park lunch ever? Definitely this healthy 10-Minute Tuna Wrap. A delicious Avocado Tahini Dip as sauce, lettuce, tuna, cucumber and bell pepper. Hungry? Lunch is ready in T-10!
Lately we’ve been out and about in parks and splash pads a lot because it’s hot hot hot in Montreal. I work on the blog in the mornings and the afternoons I dedicate to entertaining the two short people in the house. They are really patient with me in the morning but around 1 pm they start to get frustrated.
They tend to stand in front of me, fully dressed and shoes on, asking if it’s time to go to the park yet. Note, getting them to dress themselves during the school year has always been a huge struggle. Now they do it all themselves and without being asked. Score!
The point is: I don’t have much time to prepare lunch and we all prefer take-and-go lunches so we can finally go to the park. We eat A TON of wraps in those situations. They are quick and easy to prepare, leave almost no mess in the kitchen and are easy for kids to eat on the go. This 10-Minute Tuna Wrap is probably our favorite, followed by this Healthy Chicken Wrap.
So why is this our favorite? Apart from the fact that it only takes 10 minutes to make them, we love the texture combination. There is soft and juicy tuna in the middle, crunchy and fresh cucumber, bell pepper and lettuce around it and then a soft and chewy whole wheat tortilla. Hmmmm. I wish I had one right now!
I was also able to shoot a recipe video for this specific Tuna Wrap. The lighting is much better this time as opposed to the Sweet Potato Fries video. I’m getting better at this every time, eh? What do you think? Is the video helpful?
And now to something totally different. We’re going on a BOAT HOUSE! Wheeeeee :D Only for a couple of days but still. This will be our family summer vacation and we can’t wait. The kids have been counting the nights forever and tonight is finally the last night.
Needless to say. There won’t be any new posts early next week. I hope you can forgive me and scan my recipe archive instead if you even think it’s necessary to make anything other than a 10-Minute Tuna Wrap until the end of times :P
Here is the link to the written recipe of the Avocado Tahini Dip you need for the wraps: https://greenhealthycooking.com/sweet-potato-fries-avocado-tahini-dip/ and also how to make sweet potato fries to dip into the leftover dip ;)
