Looking for a delicious, light picnic lunch or dinner that you don’t have to wash on or eat with a fork yet is still super filling because it’s a macro meal?

 

Look no farther! Forkless Shawarma Lettuce Wraps are a great easy grab-‘n-go macro meal for busy summer days when I’m carpooling everywhere and want to have a salad but don’t have time to sit with a bowl and a fork.

 

This has all the macros: protein from chicken, healthy fats from tahini, fiber from veggies, and fiber, starch, and a little extra protein from the chickpeas.

 

I love throwing chickpeas in as my starch component as much as I can. Aside from being a healthy carb, they have extra fiber and protein, making them a carb that is very good for blood sugar.

Watch me make these delicious, nutritious lunch wraps here!
