Avocado Chicken Wrap

I’ve got a whole slew of recipes on my site but there is one category that I’m hoping to build up – healthy options.  There are lots of easy dinner ideas, desserts, breads and more but I need to add some that are easy to make AND healthy.  Right?  Today’s Avocado Chicken Wrap is delicious, healthy and easy to make.  My family gave it two thumbs way up.  So much so that I packed it in lunches for the following day!
Healthy and delicious Avocado Chicken Wrap - simple to make and so good! A healthy alternative for lunch or dinner.

I don’t have a ton of time to make big elaborate meals because we’re on the go a lot.  For some reason most of the good looking healthy options have a million steps and dirty 500 dishes.  Every once in awhile that’s fine.  But day to day?  Not gonna happen around here.   This one is perfect!

Recipe slightly adapted from Family Fresh Meals

I got the La Tortilla Factory Whole Wheat Tortillas from Costco for the wrap.  They are only 80 calories and taste great! You can order a case here if you want to buy in bulk and then freeze them.

A healthy alternative for lunch or dinner.  www.thirtyhandmadedays.comLike I mentioned, these went straight into lunch boxes for the next day.  My husband said they held up great.  I had one at home for a leftover lunch and was surprised that the avocado didn’t brown after sitting overnight.  I haven’t tried to do leftovers for more than a day with this so I can’t say how they’d hold up for more than that but 2 meals out of this was awesome for our family!

    The wraps sound wonderful! We eat avocados and guacamole all the time! I always say it’s good for us in moderation. Thanks for this recipe. :)
