4 Tortilla Wrap Recipes

This post is sponsored by Horizon Organic. All opinions are my own. 4 wholesome tortilla wrap ideas for kids and adults. 
These vegetarian and vegan tortilla or lavash wrap recipes are perfect for packed lunches.
My kids, like many others around the country, went back to school this week. It's been a swirl of mixed emotions for me. On the one hand, I'll miss our lazy days together, but on the other, we all thrive with some routine. I know I'm more balanced when I get a little time to myself. I'm excited to get back into my yoga and workout mornings, and having time to work during the day, rather than at 5am.  With the back-to-school season comes lunch packing. 

I know we can all use more ideas for packed lunches, whether it's for work or school. So I wanted to share four of my go-to tortilla wraps. You can use tortillas or lavash, although lavash is my family's preference taste wise. These wraps all take just a few minutes to prepare and are filled with nourishing veggies or fruit. The options for wrap fillings are endless, but here are four ideas to get you started.

My girls started eating these peanut butter and banana wraps when their  preschool started serving them for snack. It's definitely a preschooler favorite. You can use any nut or seed butter your family likes. If I have homemade chocolate almond butter around I'll even use that sometimes. Please remember to cut round foods like grapes and cherry tomatoes in half lengthwise for small children. If there are any children with nut allergies in your kids' classes, please don't pack them in lunch boxes.

Once we've got our wraps rolled up and into the lunch boxes, we can supplement with other snacks. I typically try to create a balanced lunch by including fruit, veggies, protein and healthy fats. I also love to add a kid-favorite snack like Horizon fruit snacks, grahams, or crackers. They don't contain any artificial colors or flavors and my kids (and husband) get really excited. Sometimes the extra fun treats make the difference between my kids asking for school hot lunch and wanting lunch from home, which I prefer.
Vegetarian packed lunch with a Mediterranean wrap.
This easy lunch is made with the Mediterranean wrap, Horizon organic peanut butter sandwich crackers, kiwi, watermelon, blueberries, and a few Horizon fruit snacks. This wrap is one I often make for myself for lunch. If you happen to have balela salad in the fridge, us it here! It will have a ton of flavor.


I made a fun, short little video so you can watch these wraps in action!
