Chickpeas, quinoa, and whole grains make protein-packed hummus wraps the ideal lunch for those looking to get adequate amounts of plant protein at mealtime.
I always shock myself when I make a recipe that does not include some kind of animal protein [i.e. mainly beef, chicken, or turkey]. And I shock myself even more when the 3 men in my life gobble-up a vegetarian recipe of mine without even blinking an eye. Perhaps it’s because I told them lunch this weekend were protein-packed hummus wraps and they felt manly for that very reason?! Yeeeeah, I’m sure that’s what my toddlers were thinking. The reality is when I make something with a mixture of nutritious AND flavorful ingredients there are usually not many complaints from my peanut gallery.
When Flatout Flatbread first introduced me to their ProteinUp and FoldIt Protein line of wraps, we were using them in our standard lunch recipes: grilled turkey and cheese for the boys and turkey, cheese, and avocado wraps for Ted. But this weekend when we had our usual Middle Eastern carryout for lunch on Saturday, I saved some extra hummus and tabbouleh [which the salad I ordered had quinoa in it— gold star for extra protein there too!] and made a simple, vegetarian wrap with the leftovers.
Vegetarian diets and meals often have a bad reputation in the protein department. But when you pair your favorite vegetarian foods [think veggies, fruits, and whole grains for starters] with smart plant protein choices, like the ProteinUp wraps from Flatout [10-12 grams of protein per wrap]— AND hummus for the Serbinski crew, you can easily meet your body’s protein needs. While I’m all for the traditional turkey and cheese for lunch, next time you see these Flatout products in your grocery store’s deli department I’d encourage you to pick up a pack or two. This hummus wrap is calling your name!

Confession: I was the only one who ate the tabbouleh salad on my hummus wrap, while everyone else [mainly the toddlers] gave themselves hummus facials wiped clean by a wrap or two!
