The wrap is an easy nutritious lunch idea and great for packed lunches. It's loaded with Mediterranean flavors and nutrient rich ingredients.
In recent years the benefits of Mediterranean-type diets have become pretty well known. Many of us have abandoned low-fat diets, especially highly processed ones, in exchange for ones rich in healthy fats with fewer carbohydrates. I've found that I do my best eating this way. I am not strict about it. I mostly just focus eating on clean, healthy ingredients. I make sure to get some healthy fat, such as extra virgin olive oil in each meal, substitute vegetables for carbohydrate laden foods when I can and limit sugar to the occasional dessert. This Mediterranean Tuna and Chickpea Wrap is an example of a typical lunch for me.Of course you can add a side of homemade crispy kettle chips to go with the wrap.
Mediterranean Tuna and Chickpea Wrap: Making
While Yellowfin Tuna and chickpeas are the main star of the wrap - feta, olives and parsley bring some extra Mediterranean flavor to the mixture.
This is served on a low carb, high fiber wrap, along with some romaine and a dollop of Tzatziki sauce. The tuna and chickpea filling also makes a nice quick lunch by itself, or over a bed of greens, if you practice a strictly limited carbohydrate diet.
The wrap features wild-caught Yellowfin Tuna in Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Sun-dried Tomato. I used smaller wraps for this and packed them nice and full. This is just my personal preference, a larger wrap would give you room for more lettuce and would admittedly be easier to roll.
I love how this recipe makes a good sized batch of the tuna and chickpea mixture. After making a couple wraps, I store the rest in the refrigerator for a quick nosh when I'm hungry and don't want to cook. Having fast and easy nutritious options readily available makes staying on track with healthy eating much easier.
