It’s really great when we can vary our vegetable and fruit consumption from day to day, but as much as I love veggies and fruits, I often find myself stuck on a specific veggie-filled lunch as my “go to” until I finally get tired of it and have to move on. I’m not advocating the same lunch day after day because as I said it’s best to vary your fruit and vegetable intake, but when I’m stuck on a particular lunch, it’s because it is soooooo delicious. That’s the case with this Mediterranean Veggie Wrap. Eyeball the amount of ingredients that you need based on the size of your wrap.
