Healthy Lunch Recipe: Chicken Wrap and Jelly!

Some of you may know that I am trying to be healthier in a bid to loose a few pounds as well as just being well healthy! 
I have been eating this for my lunch, it's surprisingly very tasty and low in calories, fat, sugar... basically it's just good for you! I've been taking this lunch to college so it's good for a packed lunch as well as if you're just having a spot to eat at home.

To start you'll need a wrap. You can use 1 large 'brown' wrap or 1 small white wrap(this is from Weight Watchers and only 107 calories)
  As a substitute for Mayonnaise you can use Greek yogurt, I've been using one from glensik but any will do.(I had to make sure none of my family ate all of the yogurt on me- hence the label!). Spread a tea spoon full all over your wrap. I know yogurt seems like the last thing you would put on a wrap but trust me it's pretty good! 
It's chicken time! It would be better if you cooked a fillet of chicken yourself but for convenience I got this roast chicken from Tesco. Dice the chicken and line it in the middle of the wrap. You can also use other meats such as turkey. It's important to have protein in every meal.
Next add some lettuce. I used mixed lettuce and again any lettuce goes. I normally only like ice burg but for some reason in this wrap it tastes pretty good!

This is the best part of the wrap for me. It truly makes it taste absolutely delicious! Drizzle a little across the chicken and lettuce.
You can also add other vegetables such as peppers or cucumber. Veggies are good folks!
Roll your wrap up, tuck in the edges and voila! You have a tasty lunch ready to eat or store in the fridge for tomorrow's packed lunch!(I always make my Lunch for college the night before)
If you're like me and you like to have something else with your lunch specifically something sweet. These jelly/jello pots from Hartleys are perfect! They have no fat and at less then 10 calories per pot you would be silly  not to include one in your lunch! 
So there is a lunch that I'm enjoying so I thought I would share it with you all. Let me know if you would like more posts like this with different ideas for healthy alternatives.

Until Next Time, I hope you're all well and I'll talk to you all soon,

  2. I never considered greek yogurt as a mayo substitute, such a great idea! I will definitely be trying this, and may be getting those jelly's to soothe my sweet tooth:P

    1. I know I would never have thought of it either until someone told me! You can use natural yogurt too or the lowest fat soft cheese(like philadelphia but the tesco one actually is 'less bad' for you!)
      The little pots are great for on the go but if you're at home you can get the powdered version that you make yourself and pop in the fridge! I eat it when i want to run to the shop for sweets..!
