Cooking On the Go

Need some ideas about how to eat healthy meals on the go? Here are a few tips to help you out!

Wraps are great for an easy, tasty lunch. Use a whole wheat tortilla, such as La Tortilla Factory (only 50 calories and 7 grams of fiber), add your choice of lean protein, some low-fat cheese and crunchy veggies. Voila! It’s a wrap!

Vegetables are a great way to get a lot of fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants without racking up the calories. If you have a microwave at work, try bringing frozen veggies that come in their own steam bag.
