Especially at the end of a hectic day, eating out or ordering in might feel like the quickest, easiest option.

But convenience and processed food can take a significant toll on your mood and health.

Taking small simple steps by replacing processed food with real food whenever possible and eating plenty of vegetables and healthy sources of protein.

It doesn’t mean you have to spend hours in the kitchen combining hundreds of different ingredients or slavishly following elaborate recipes. In fact, I find the most simplest meals are often the tastiest.

This easy to make wrap will definitely give you the idea that healthy meals can be simple and delicious.
