Anabel's Healthy Wraps

15 Minutes

Makes 1 wrap

Ingredients

  • Wraps

  • Sour Cream

  • Humus

  • Protein-packed Falafel

  • Spinach or lettuce

  • Grated carrot

Method

Wraps – I have a baby wrap and a big wrap – there are all sorts in the shops, so choose which one you like best. My favourite is seeded, but today I’ll use tomato and basil. Wraps are made from flour, which is a carbohydrate and gives us energy. 


Falafel – there are all sorts of falafel available, or you can use thai bites, or pakora – all of them are little balls with slightly different ingredients which are full of protein - we need protein to build our muscles. Today I have spinach and pinenut. There is a lot of choice out there so use whatever you prefer. Another option is any left over chicken if you fancy a meaty wrap.  


Humus – Humus is made from chickpeas and sesame seeds, so another great source of protein and healthy fats. Healthy fats are necessary for your heart and brain to work properly. You can get plain or flavoured humus – it’s up to you which you like best. I’m going to use caramelised onion. 


Sour Cream – this is my favourite, but you could use mayonnaise, or a vegan version, or none if you want. Sour cream is a dairy product so contains calcium, which is good for your bones.  

Spinach/Lettuce– I’m actually going to use fresh spinach as it’s very tasty and filled with of iron, vitamins and other trace minerals you need. 


Grated Carrot – which is full of vitamin A, which is thought to help you see in the dark! I grate 2 carrots and put them in a sealed container so I can use them over a couple of days. It’s very nice with a little sea salt and sesame oil. 

Now for the fun... I start by spreading some sour cream on the wrap with a knife in a long line across the middle, then with a clean knife spread some humus below the sour cream, then crumble in two falafel, then add some spinach, then some carrot. Keeping it all in a line in the middle of the wrap. 

Remember you can add whatever ingredients you like to make it tasty, or leave out ones you don’t like. Some people have allergies, so check what you add is ok for you. 

Let me know your favourite ingredients! 

Then I roll up the wrap tightly and put it on a plate ready to eat. Before tucking in, I do a quick tidy up - putting the knives in the dishwasher and the ingredients back in the fridge.  

Now to sit down.... and enjoy! 

I hope you will have fun making your own healthy wraps – goodbye!
