Zee has been demanding recipes. For those of you who are not big into cooking, here is my go-to lunch recipe that does not involve cooking. Also ideal as a dinner alternative when the rest of the family is eating a regular meal that does not fit your nutrition plan.
Chicken- and-Salad Wrap
1 kids size wrap (about the size of a dessert plate)
1 tsp light/extra-light cream cheese
1 generous handful of chicken breast pieces (cooked)
1 handful of grated/spiralised carrot
half a diced red pepper
1 diced spring onion
10 cherry tomatoes (halved)
Spread the cream cheese on the wrap, sprinkle all the other ingredients onto the wrap, season with salt/pepper/herbs to your liking. Roll it up and enjoy.

The whole wrap concoction has 2 SmartPoints and is a perfect lunch item that will make you feel sated until the afternoon snack, yet still leave you plenty of points to be used for dinner. Not sure about the calorie value of this meal, but the main culprits in it are the wrap and the chicken.
I have been eating one of those almost every day since I started my healthy eating drive 10 days ago, and since the veggies can be varied, I am not sick of it yet. Also, the chicken can be replaced with one slice of Parma ham, which will only add 1 extra SmartPoint to the value. That’s an awful lot of bang for your points.
