Healthy Back-to-School Lunch Options: Ham, Cheese, Red Onion + Pickle Wrap

October 6, 2010

Welcome to Week 4 of healthy schools lunches with Flatout Bread and Savor the Thyme.

This week I am getting creative with a lunch staple: sliced deli ham. Seeing that my kids love deli meat, we do our best to buy no nitrate/nitrite added meats (Stop & Shop carries a Nature’s Promise line as well as Trader Joe’s).

The sandwich that I am presenting to you today is one that my husband created about a year ago and the kids loved. The reason it also sticks out in my mind is that my son was at his peak of picky eating and I could not believe that he just started eating daddy’s sandwich without examining the contents first.

Healthy Back To School Lunch Day 18

Here, I present:

Ham, Cheese, Red Onion & Pickle Sandwich

  • 1 multigrain Flatout Wrap
  • 2 slices deli ham
  • 1 slice of cheddar cheese or cheese or choice
  • 3-4 slices of red onion
  • 1 sandwich pickle

Directions:

Place ham onto the wrap closest to one end of the wrap, top with cheese, onion and pickle. Roll the wrap, cut in half and place into container.

***

Pair with carrots and hummus, almonds, apple sauce and a container of water.

I hope you have found the lunch ideas useful. There are plenty more great recipes and tips at Savor the Thyme.
