These really do live up to their name - they are super quick and easy to make, plus the combinations are endless. They are a great way to pack whole-grains, protein, and veggies into one neat little package. This one is just 1 whole wheat/sprouted grain wrap, 3-4 slices of turkey, 1/2 an avocado, 1/4 cucumber cucumber, and spinach! For a meatless option, just replace the turkey with hummus, or smashed chickpeas/beans with some salt, pepper, lemon juice and oil!
