Being pregnant means I am hungry ALL THE TIME. And since I’m staying active and working out during my pregnancy, I’m pretty sure that makes me hungrier than usual! I am all about quick and easy small meals that are healthy so I can keep from getting too hungry and hangry, and so eating smaller amounts at a time will help me not suffer from that dreaded pregnancy acid reflux. It’s truly the worst.
This recipe has been my jam for the past couple of weeks! It’s simple, fast, and full of healthy nutrients for me and the babe. If you prep the veggies ahead of time and keep them sliced in the fridge for the week, it makes it very simple to make!
In the name of ease, I sliced a whole avocado, tossed it with the juice of half a lemon, and added parsley, salt, and pepper, and just kept it in the fridge for a couple of days before it got too browned. The lemon juice helps it not brown, but it doesn’t completely prevent it.
For me as a pregnant person, this is a good snack by itself. It doesn’t have much in the way of protein, so I wouldn’t count it as a full meal by itself. I recommend adding some protein to this (or on the side) to make it more well-rounded as a meal!
You could also substitute different crunchy veggies if you wanted–sliced radishes would add a nice kick!
Crunchy Veggie Hummus Wraps (adapted from Beachbody)
1 multigrain tortilla wrap (I use the Flat Out brand)
2 tbsp hummus in the flavor of your choice
1/3 cup sliced red pepper
1/3 cup shredded carrot
1/3 cup sliced cucumber (sliced into matchstick pieces, not rounds for easier folding)
1/4 avocado, sliced
1 tbsp lemon juice
Parsley to taste
Salt and pepper, to taste
Slice the avocado and toss with the lemon juice, parsley, and salt and pepper. Set aside.
Lay wrap flat on prep surface/plate. Spread hummus evenly on wrap.
On one half of the wrap, place cucumber slices, then layer with carrots and red pepper slices. Top with avocado slices.
Fold wrap over to be either taco style or burrito style, whatever’s your jam.
For my container people, I am not 100% certain about the wrap, but I counted this as one green, one blue, and 1 yellow.
