This Tuna Power Wrap is a quick and healthy lunch and is protein-packed, giving you the energy you need to get through your day!
I first had a similar wrap to this from the premade meals section at Trader Joe's. You know the spot-- with all the delicious salads and sandwiches that are great for easy lunches and snacks! As much as I love that section, I knew I could create this wrap at home, at a better price, and without the need for single-use plastic.
So what makes this wrap a "power" wrap?
Well, it has a great mix of protein, greens, and carbs! All of these together help increase satiety and give you energy.
Tuna is a great source of protein. In fact, it is an almost pure protein food! One can of Starkist tuna contains 16 grams of protein. Here I mixed it with mayo, but you can also use greek yogurt like in this Healthy Greek Yogurt Tuna Salad.
To up the protein even more, I added sliced hardboiled egg. Each wrap has one hardboiled egg, about 6 grams of protein. Here or instructions for simple to make Ninja Foodi Hard Boiled Eggs. They can be made in any Instant Pot or pressure cooker.
Leafy greens are packed with vitamins, minerals, and fiber, but are low in calories. I used Spring Mix. These baby lettuces are tender and versatile. They go as a great compliment to the tuna.
And finally-- the wrap. Carbs are not the enemy. Your body needs them to have energy. There are definitely some carbs that are better than others. A thin wrap, with whole ingredients like this one from Tortilla Fresca, is a great option. We buy ours at Costco.
