Caesar Wrap for One

Every restaurant seems to have chicken caesar salad, a chicken caesar wrap, or chicken caesar something on their menu—and I am almost always tempted to get it! Why?! This is the easiest thing to make at home! And it is a lot healthier (and cheaper) if you do. Here is my version of a healthy wrap I like to make for lunch:

Caesar Wrap for One
1 whole wheat/ multigrain tortilla*
3 oz sliced deli turkey breast
1 oz Neufchatel or light cream cheese
1 Tbsp shredded parmesan cheese
1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
Tomato or assorted sandwich veggies (optional)
1 Tbsp of your favorite Caesar dressing

Spread the cream cheese in a 2 inch stripe down the center of the tortilla. Top with the sliced turkey and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Microwave the tortilla for 30 seconds on high until the turkey is warm and cream cheese begins to melt. In a small bowl, toss the lettuce with the dressing. Top the turkey with the lettuce, and add tomatoes or other veggies you like as garnish. Wrap and enjoy!

*There are two different wraps that I would recommend for this: If you like a really hearty tortilla, French Meadow Bakery’s Fat Flush spelt tortillas are great for sandwich wraps and high in fiber. Otherwise if you usually like a plain flour tortilla and want to try something healthier, I’d definitely recommend Joseph’s tortillas. They are made with oat bran, flax, and whole-wheat flour and are really tasty with a great “just like regular wrap” texture. Plus they are only 70 calories and a good source of omega-3s! You can find both of these in the refrigerated section of the grocery store.( Try Lunds and Byerlys, or Kowalski's.)

Time for a quick lunch! Yum!
