What Are Food Wraps?

Food wraps are quickly becoming the latest trend in healthy eating. The reason for this is not hard to understand: people just don’t get enough of their favorite food in normal diets. We are all too aware that we don’t always have the time or money to prepare delicious meals; therefore, we turn to fast food, junk food, and unhealthy snack foods. By making use of these foods in your wrap recipes, you can easily make healthy and great tasting meals without having to wait on a busy schedule to go to the kitchen. A wrap is essentially a food item made from a soft thin flatbread stuffed between two sheets of bread with a filling between. Typical fillings include vegetables, meats, cheeses, crackers, fruits, and dips.

How to Choose the Best Food Wraps?

There are many different ways you can prepare your own food wraps, such as purchasing pre-made deli-style breads or buying whole wheat rolls from the supermarket or a health food store. Another option is to buy small packages of sealed tuna, chicken, or ham and wrap it in aluminum foil before cooking in the oven or on the grill. Some people enjoy taking one of these food wraps with them to work in the morning, packing a lunch with an already prepared lunch and then going home to eat it. If you are looking for something nutritious but still taste good, consider making your own fruit, cheese, and meat filled sandwich on whole wheat crackers instead of purchasing pre-packaged ones in the market.

While making food wraps is easy, preparing them in the right way is very important. The most important thing when preparing food wraps is to seal them using the right type of plastic wrap. Two of the most recommended types of sealants are those made from beeswax and plastic wrap. Beeswax, which comes from the sap of the shea tree, is more expensive than plastic wrap, but it is more reliable in terms of sticking to the flatbread. Baking soda is another popular alternative for beeswax, but it can be hard to find at the local grocery store.
