Rainbow Wraps and Chives

We have a crop of chives that literally won't go away.  We love that it comes back every year, but it is not by any effort on our part. In fact, we don't water it, we don't feed it, we step on it, we have placed a toy box right on top of it, yet every year it comes back! It's un-killable.  But, every spring we enjoy the spicy taste of chives in a variety of foods.  Recently, we started adding chives to our lunch wraps, and it tastes amazing!   1 TBL of chives have:

  • 9 mg of potassium,
  • 3 mg of calcium,
  • 78 mcg of beta-carotene,
  • 3 mcg of folic acid and
  • 6 mcg of vitamin K.

Our Rainbow Wrap Recipe includes:

  • 1 teaspoon of chopped chives
  • 1 wedge of laughing cow cheese.

Combine chives and cheese and spread this over a whole wheat tortilla.

Filling the tortilla with crunch and colorful veggies:

  • Red tomatoes and red bell peppers, sliced thinly.
  • Orange Carrots and orange bell peppers, sliced thinly
  • Green avocados and green lettuce, sliced thinly.
  • Purple cabbage, sliced thinly.

Mmmmmm. Your kids will love it!

laptop lunch rainbow wrap

I love these laptop lunch boxes! Each section has a lid (including the tiny section I used for my veggie dip, which was none other than, more laughing cow cheese and chives. ha ha.  The best part: The lid to the big sections have pictures of fruits and veggies! This goes right along with our theory that fruits and veggies should comprise half your meal!  Love the laptop lunch for this reason!

We've had the laptop lunch bento box for more than 3 years now for our son and it's still going strong (we did have to replace lost lid, but that's to be expected!). It really helps make sure we get in those fruits and veggies. And, we end up saving money because we never buy single-serving sizes. Obviously I'm a huge fan :)

Thanks for sharing! It was so nice, because I just capped the leftovers with the lid, and put it in the fridge. Then, literally a minute ago, I finished off those peppers!! Perfect for leftovers.
