From McDonald’s, to Starbucks, to your local corner cafe, you’ve probably noticed a food trend taking over lunch menus everywhere: wraps. In the MenuCalc system alone, over 560 wrap recipes have been created and analyzed for their nutritional content. Our sources tell us the trend is only set to continue. Here are three reasons why we love them, and why you should, too.
1. They’re portable. Wraps can be eaten on-the-go easier than almost any other lunch food. Unlike a salad, they don’t require a fork. Unlike a sandwich, they don’t require a plate. And unlike soup, there are no concerns about keeping the temperature right. They’re perfectly designed to eat single-handedly and with very little mess.
2. They’re healthy. Think of them as the burrito’s lighter, fitter cousin. Wraps are a lower-carb, higher protein option for the ever-growing segment of diners looking to lighten up their lunches.
3. They’re fun. Southwest, teriyaki, or just a classic turkey club…it’s hard to get bored with such endless variety!
