This meal prep recipe was inspired by a superbowl party snack that my friend Amanda, over at Thirty-Two Degrees made. She brought some amazing greek pinwheels for one of our appetizers and they were literally SO good! I decided to make a “better for you” version to pack for work week lunches, and they turned out pretty good! Keep reading for the recipe below!
I like the veggie wraps as a work week lunch because they don’t take a ton of ingredients and stay pretty good in the fridge for a few days. They start to get a little soggy if you leave them for more than 3 days, so keep that in mind as you plan your week! My recent goal has been to pack lunch for at least 3 days a week, so this works out okay for me.
The ingredients you need to make the wrap are:
- Spinach tortillas
- 1 cup of plain greek yogurt
- 1 container of feta cheese
- 1 package of mini tomatoes
- 1 package of mini bell peppers (regular size would work too)
- 1 can of olives (I just got the smallest there was since I don’t love olives)
- 1 bag of spinach or other greens
Lay out the tortillas and spread them with a layer of greek yogurt. You can do about 4 large size tortillas with one cup of greek yogurt. Then chop up your veggies and add rows of them– I halved the mini tomatoes, chopped the peppers into pretty small pieces, and rinsed the olives before adding them to remove the added sodium. Add as much feta as you want– the feta is what adds a lot of the flavor, so I added about 1/4 cup per wrap. Sprinkle the greens on top of your veggies and roll up the wraps.
Roll the wraps tightly to make sure they stay rolled and then slice to create the pinwheels. So I didn’t waste the end pieces, I just rolled them into a different pinwheel instead of just throwing it out! It helps to store them in a container where they are snug against each other so that they don’t start to unroll.
I packed these along with some baby carrots, grapes, and a protein bar for my work lunches. I like that the wrap is actually filling so I don’t end up hungry an hour later (I’m literally always hungry..)! As I’ve shared before, I don’t count calories so I can’t provide any info on that– other than it should be less than 400 calories for one wrap, depending on how you make it.
