Cilantro Hummus Veggie Wrap w/ Lemon Pepper Snow Peas


All my veggie lovers out there are about to be too excited for this cilantro hummus, beet, avocado, feta wrap! I used a cilantro jalapeño hummus from Trader Joe's that is out of this world filled with flavor and a little kick from the jalapeño. I then paired that with some steamed and peeled beets (Trader Joe's), fresh spinach, feta cheese, avocado slices, fresh parsley, and lemon/lemon zest. Then, I wanted to pair this deliciously nutritious veggie wrap with something crunchy and healthy, and chips are just so out dated, so I went with some fresh snow peas and added some lemon juice and lots of black pepper to give them a lil kick. Needless to say I am super excited about this lovely creation because it makes for the perfect on the go lunch, just wrap it up in foil and keep in a cool place and you are good to go ! Hope you all enjoy as much as I did :) 

Nutrition: 
Let's start with the whats keeping this all together, the whole wheat wrap, with 4 grams of fiber and only 160 calories this makes for the perfect vehicle to hold our veggies in. Next, the flavorful cilantro jalapeño hummus at 80 calories, 2 grams fiber, and 2 grams of protein makes for the perfect plant based protein element for our wrap. The beets add fiber, iron, protein, potassium, and only 30 calories. The feta cheese is non fat and adds calcium and vitamin D. The spinach adds vitamin K, potassium, fiber. The avocado adds Omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin E, and potassium. The parsley adds vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, and vitamin A. The lemon juice adds vitamin C (antioxidant). And the olive oil adds more omega 3 fatty acids (which is super important since we are consuming many fat soluble vitamins: ADEK). Lastly the snow peas are excellent source of protein and fiber giving us a balanced meal !
