What is a Greek Breakfast Wrap?
A Greek breakfast wrap is a delicious and healthy way to start your day. This easy-to-make breakfast wrap is packed with protein and flavor. Feta cheese, eggs, spinach, hummus, and more come together beautifully in a whole wheat tortilla. These wraps can be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge for a quick and satisfying breakfast on the go.
Can I Swap the Whole Wheat Tortillas For Flour Ones?
Yes, but there’s a reason we chose whole wheat tortillas over flour ones!
Whole wheat tortillas are made with whole wheat flour, which is milled from the entire wheat grain. This type of flour contains all of the wheat germ and bran, which gives it a higher fiber content than white flour. Whole wheat tortillas are also usually lower in calories and have a higher protein content than their white flour counterparts.
When it comes to taste, whole wheat tortillas generally have a nuttier flavor than flour tortillas. They can also be more dense and chewy in texture. If you’re looking for a healthier option, whole wheat tortillas are a good choice. But if you’re looking for something that’s lighter and has a milder flavor, you can swap them out with flour tortillas.
Try Making Your Own Hummus!
Hummus is a delicious and versatile Middle Eastern spread or dip that can be made with just a few simple ingredients. You can enjoy hummus as-is, or use it in a recipe like this Greek Breakfast wrap. Making your own hummus at home is easy and only takes about 10 minutes.
For your homemade hummus you will need:
-1 can (15 oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
-2 tablespoons tahini sauce
-1 garlic clove, minced
-1 teaspoon ground cumin
-Salt and pepper, to taste
Then, simply add all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. So easy!
Hummus is a delicious, healthy food that provides numerous benefits. Made from chickpeas, tahini, and lemon juice, hummus is high in protein and fiber and low in fat. It is also a good source of iron and folate.
Eating hummus can help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight because it makes you feel full and satisfied. It can also help regulate blood sugar levels and protect against heart disease and cancer. Additionally, hummus contains antioxidants that help boost immunity and fight inflammation.
Health Benefits of Eating This Greek Breakfast Wrap
We added some vitamin rich veggies to this wrap! They not only taste amazing, but they are really good for you. Here are some of the health benefits of the veggies in this yummy breakfast:
Eating baby spinach has a number of benefits that make it a great addition to any diet. Baby spinach is packed with nutrients, including vitamins A, C, and K, as well as iron and folic acid. It’s also low in calories and fat-free, making it a healthy choice for those watching their weight. In addition to being good for your health, baby spinach is also versatile and can be used in a variety of recipes.
Cucumbers are not only a low-calorie food but also a good source of vitamins and minerals. They are an excellent source of Vitamin C, which is important for immunity, and contain Potassium, which is essential for proper muscle function.
Cucumbers have been shown to have a positive effect on blood pressure and cholesterol levels. A recent study showed that eating cucumbers can help reduce the risk of heart disease.
Cucumbers are also a good source of fiber, which is important for digestive health. Fiber helps to keep you regular and can also help to reduce the risk of colon cancer.
Tomatoes are not only a delicious addition to many dishes, but they also offer some great health benefits. They are a good source of vitamins A and C.
Tomatoes can help improve your cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of some types of cancer. If that wasn’t enough, tomatoes can help boost your immune system, lower cholesterol levels, and can even promote healthy skin and hair.
We chose feta because it’s a traditional cheese in many Mediterranean and Greek inspired dishes. Feta cheese is a type of cheese that is commonly used in salads and as a topping on various dishes. It is white in color and has a slightly crumbly texture. Feta cheese is made from sheep’s milk or goat’s milk.
Feta cheese contains high amounts of conjugated linoleic acid, which has been shown to reduce body fat and improve insulin sensitivity. Additionally, feta cheese is an excellent source of calcium and vitamin B12. Eating feta cheese may offer several health benefits, including weight loss, improved insulin sensitivity, and stronger bones.
Add these benefits to its rich and bold flavor, and you might want to add it to many more dishes. For example, it’s really delicious in salads, pasta dishes, and even pizzas.
Can I Skip The Eggs?
Sure! It’s your wrap, your rules! We’ve seen people swap out the eggs for tofu with a sprinkle of nutritional yeast and seasonings to make a vegan friendly option. That’s the fun thing about wraps like these – you can customize them in a variety of ways to make them fit your tastes!
