Lunch on the Go

I have a hard time coming up with food that is easy to pack in a lunch for the times we have to be on the go.  We get tired of sandwiches.  Wraps have become a favorite option.

Here's how we make them:
  • Take a tortilla shell (whole wheat preferably) and spread it with cream cheese.  
  • Lay a piece of thin sliced deli meat or cooked chicken pieces on the tortilla. (Some of mine leave this out and just eat a vegy wrap.)
  • Place other ingredients of choice on the tortilla.  Options include thin sliced cucumbers, peppers, pickles, black olives, lettuce, and tomato.
  • Roll up tortilla.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and place in cooler until ready to eat.  (If  it will be a long time until eating and it's convenient, I just take the ingredients with us and assemble them when needed because the tortilla shells can get soggy.)
What are some of your ideas for lunch on the go?  I'd love to hear from you.


  1. We love wraps! An easy one is pb & jelly on wraps rolled up. Or spread pb on a wrap, place a banana in it & roll up. My little girls love this! Holly

    1. I've never thought about pb&j on a tortilla. My kids love it on a sandwich.
