Eating well with four active kids is a constant challenge for me. I find myself preparing them great meals, but neglecting myself or eating their leftovers. A schedule full of pick-ups and drop-offs also means that I’m eating a lot of meals on-the-go. I find it challenging to pack a lunch for myself. I don’t love sandwiches and oftentimes lunch on the run for me looks like crackers and string cheese – things I’ve purchased for the kids but don’t necessarily look forward to eating myself.
I had a great wrap in San Diego recently, and tried my own variation at home. I think I’ve figured out how to take a salad along with me. No fork required.

1 sprouted grain large tortilla
2 tbsp humus
1 cup salad greens
1 tsp sesame seeds
1/2 cup broccoli (mine was grilled, leftover from the previous night)
1 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette
1 tbsp shredded carrots
whatever other salad fixings you fancy
Spread the hummus onto the tortilla (this keeps the tortilla from getting soggy). Mix your salad in a bowl, and then place it in center of tortilla. Wrap it up like a burrito and seal with foil.
