You can have a delicious wrap anytime you want, even for brunch or breakfast. This whole wheat egg wrap recipe is a great way to start the day with a boost of fresh vegetables and whole grains. Sauteed kale and cherry tomatoes provide fiber and vitamins C and A, while hummus coats the wrap with savory flavor and healthy fats. Top with a protein-rich soft-boiled egg and you’re in breakfast heaven!

3. Grilled Portobello Mushroom, Roasted Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Wrap

Savory portobello mushrooms are satisfying meat alternatives and perfect for making an average wrap extraordinary. This grilled portobello mushroom wrap with roasted red peppers is a vegetarian dream come true brimming with Mediterranean flavors. You can use any wrap or lavash of your choice for this recipe, but make sure to serve it right off the grill so the goat cheese melts and the wrap toasts nicely.

4. Southwestern Beef & Bean Burger Wraps

If you’re looking for a filling power wrap to satisfy a big appetite, look no further. Filled with a hefty helping of lean beef and mixed with protein-rich refried beans and avocado, this “burger” wrap definitely lives up to its name.

5. Paleo Tuna Salad Sushi Wraps

Make your own sushi-inspired handrolls with this simple recipe. Tuna provides filling protein, fresh veggies add crunch and creamy avocado makes the whole thing reminiscent of takeout. Great for an easy lunch or snack, you can either prep your rolls in advance pack all your ingredients separately and assemble when you’re ready to eat.

6. Gluten-Free Chicken Quinoa Wraps

This colorful wrap is full of superfoods: whole grain quinoa, fresh and crunchy raw cabbage and carrots, and a gluten-free collard wrap. You won’t even miss the wheat: high-fiber grains and protein-rich chicken make for a filling combination that’s both lean and satisfying. At under 200 calories per wrap, this wrap can be a meal or a balanced midday snack.

7. Super Powered Tomato & Basil Wraps

A wrap fit for an Instagram photoshoot, this super-powered gluten-free vegan collard wrap features plant-based tempeh, a fermented soy protein alternative with a nutty flavor profile. Just because there isn’t any meat or seafood does not mean this wrap won’t hit the spot: tempeh, quinoa and chickpeas are all plant-based protein powerhouses, together providing 12 grams of protein per wrap.

8. Chipotle Shrimp & Guacamole Rice Paper Wraps

There are so many ways to enjoy a wrap, and it doesn’t stop at your standard wheat wrap. Similar to summer rolls, gluten-free rice-paper wraps are a fun way to serve cooked protein with fresh vegetables and cooked noodles. This simple, quick recipe is great to make ahead for a high-protein, low-carb meal that’s filling but won’t weigh you down.
