Turkey Provolone Pesto Wrap
These wraps work as a pre workout meal or snack eaten about 2 hours before your workout with a piece of fruit added to bump up the carbohydrate a bit and can work as post-workout meal or snack. Whole wheat tortillas work well as the base for sandwich wraps—standing up to any sauce or spread you use. If your GI tract doesn’t tolerate whole grains well before a workout, just switch to a white flour tortilla instead. You can assemble the wraps the night before so you can just grab them when you need them!
- 2 whole wheat flour tortillas (about 50 grams each)
- 2 tablespoons basil pesto (from frozen, fresh or jar)
- 3 ounces thinly sliced roasted turkey breast (from deli works great)
- 4 thin slices 2% reduced fat provolone cheese (about 2 ounces)
- 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
Place tortillas on cutting board (microwave briefly if tortilla needs to be softened) and spread pesto evenly over the top of each. Place turkey breast evenly over pesto and top each with two slices of cheese down the center of the tortilla. Place spinach leaves evenly over the tops of the entire tortilla.
Roll up from the side without the cheese. Cut each in half and wrap in plastic wrap or serve with a toothpick to keep them rolled up.
