Salad On-The-Go

Eating healthy with two active kids is a constant challenge for me. I find myself preparing them great meals, but neglecting myself or eating their leftovers. This is particularly true when I pack a lunch. I don't love sandwiches and oftentimes lunch on the run for me looks like crackers and string cheese.

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 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
1 tbsp balsamic vinagrette
1 tbsp shredded carrots
whatever other salad fixings you fancy

Spread the hummus onto the tortilla. Mix other ingredients in a bowl, and then place in center of tortilla. Wrap up like a burrito and pack for playgroup.


  1. I am a new working mom who has been back to work for exactly one week now... still figuring out how I can bring something for lunch besides a can of soup... thank you for the idea!
