Easy, tasty and healthy. What's not to love about these Veggie Hummus Wraps?I’ve been really tired lately.  And it’s not because of baby Robbie.  Well, his 5:30am wake up calls don’t exactly help…  But I’m tired because of our dogs.  Anyone who knows us knows that we love our two pups.  They are like kids to us.  All things considered, they’ve adjusted decently well to the arrival of a squirmy two-legged baby in the house.

Max has been with me since right after college.  He’s followed me to Louisiana then Georgia and now upstate New York.  He’s sat with me for endless hours of thesis and dissertation writing.  He’s a trooper.  But he’s also a bed hog.

What's not to love about these Veggie Hummus Wraps?Now I know some people will say that you should never let your dogs sleep in bed with you.  Yeah right.  Have you met our dogs?  Max loves to lay at the end of the bed between me and Laura.  But lately, he’s been a little hog.

I wake up with one leg off the bed and the other contorted in a position that you would swear is not physically possible.  But I still love the little guy.  I try my best not to shove him or inadvertently kick him in the face in the middle of the night.  He’s a great dog, and I’ll happily let him snore away at the end of the bed.  Even if it means I’m a little bit tired on some days.

But here’s the thing.  Ethel is a little space heater on 4 legs.  Some nights I swear she radiates more heat than the sun.  And she loves to be touching your back while you sleep.  Again, she means nothing but the best.  But between Max and Ethel, we often wake up overheated and falling off the bed.

Speaking of chihuahuas, my friend posted this photo on Facebook a few weeks back.  Given my love of all things food (and especially blueberry muffins), I found this one quite amusing.  There is a surprising similarity between chihuahuas and blueberry muffins.  You can clearly tell which pics are dogs and which pics are muffins, but it’s enough to stop and make you laugh.

Shifting gears a bit, let’s talk about lunch.  While I do work from home, I still don’t like spending a lot of time fussing over lunch.  I like something easy and quick.  Last week, I had a craving for hummus.  And I’m not one to fight my food cravings.  So I grabbed some hummus and veggies from the store, and then it hit me.  Instead of dipping the veggies, why not turn the whole thing into a delicious wrap.  Done!

Easy, tasty and healthy. What's not to love about these Veggie Hummus Wraps?I grabbed a pack of Flatout’s Red Pepper Hummus wraps and got to work.  (Yes, I appreciated the fact that I used hummus wraps to make these Veggie Hummus Wraps.  Flatout also has Sundried Tomato wraps and Garden Spinach wraps.  Both of which would be excellent choices for these veggie wraps!)  After a couple minutes of veggie chopping and hummus spreading, I was looking at one delicious lunch.  These Veggie Hummus Wraps were epic, y’all.  They’re quick, tasty and healthy.  What’s not to love there?  Oh, and the wraps come from Flatout’s Protein Up, Carb Down line.  Each flatbread brings 12g of protein and only 9g of net carbs.  Score!

If you have dogs, do you let them sleep on the bed?

What is your go-to lunch menu?  Can you roll it into a wrap?

  1. Happiest of Fridays, my Upstate NYC friend! That video is awesome! Are you joining Nate in his presentation at SoFabUOTR? 😉
    BTW – love your use of hummus in these wraps – these must have been so flavorful – Lil Shashi and I picked up a trick from another blogger to use hummus on our naan pizzas instead of sauce but haven’t tried it in a wrap yet – and now I’m wanting to exchange this jar of peanut butter in my hand for a tub of hummus!
    Yup – I have 2 dogs – both around 75 lbs and nope, no way will I let either of them in bed – Lil Shashi used to, but after waking up on the floor one too many times, she doesn’t either!
    Hope y’all have a wonderful weekend – now go take a nap!

    1. Hah! Thanks, Shashi! 🙂 We’ve been on a huge hummus kick lately, and wrapping it up with fresh veggies has been such a tasty (and healthy) lunch. Hummus on a naan pizza sounds amazing, too. I need to try that one out soon! Sounds like your pups are a bit larger than ours…but I’m guessing they’re just as spoiled still!

  2. We don’t have dogs but two cats and they do love to sleep in bed with us. It works most of the time but sometimes it causes us sleepless nights too – and we also have to sleep in funny positions 😉 I still would not want to miss them though. This lunch idea is genius – I always struggle to think about healthy & quick lunch recipes so this one definitely goes on to my list. Have a lovely weekend ♡

    1. That’s the thing…funny sleep position and all, I still want the pups right there in bed with me. Although in the summer, our larger dog gets hot and sleeps on the floor…and I gotta say it’s kinda nice! 🙂 And yes, veggie wraps are a super easy and delicious lunch idea. The hummus helps hold you over…and it helps hold the whole wrap together at the same time. Thanks so much, Miriam!

    1. You’ve got that one right, Caroline! These wraps are super easy, and they’re a fun way to mix up the normal lunch routine. No PB&J’s this week!!

  3. Hi David! These wraps are such a perfect lunch…good for you and filling, but not the kind of filling that would leave you feeling bogged down. In the summer we eat tons of vegetables, especially when the garden is producing. We both love tomato sandwiches! We have two Border Collies who weigh about 60 pounds each and a 20 pound cat who ALL sleep in bed! Combined, they outweigh me! One dog is a back warmer and the cat likes to sleep next to my stomach. Needless to say most nights I can’t move! Happy weekend! 🙂

    1. Yeah! These wraps are great summertime lunches…especially when you pick the veggies out of your own garden. It’s still too early for gardens up here (heck, we can’t even plant it quite yet…), but I know we’ll be eating garden veggie wraps while sitting on the back porch here pretty soon. 🙂 Oh my gosh, I can only imagine sleeping with a dog stretched out on one side and a cat on the other. Too funny!

  4. These wraps look so delicious – I love seeing sprouts in there! There one of my faves but I don’t use them enough. Also, totally LOLed at the blueberry muffin/Chihuahua pic! Haha!

    1. Yes! Another sprouts lover! I am a huge fan of sprouts for summer garden wraps. I even grew sprouts myself once…they were super easy, and I think you just grew them on a wet paper towel if I recall. Either way, I just buy the sprouts now, but they are essential for a good garden wrap! 🙂

  5. Dude, is Max actually a blueberry muffin? He is, isn’t he? You have a blueberry muffin as a faux teddy bear.

    Kidding, but wow, props to your furry buddy- Since college! I guess he deserves the Greek yogurt in the morning 🙂 This wrap = boss.

    1. No! You caught me! Those are actually photos of Ethel and Max in that image. Ethel is the chihuahua, and Max is the blueberry muffin. Of course, that would mean that I sleep with a blueberry muffin in my bed…no shame.

  6. Bless you – Im not surprised you are tired being up at 5:30am! On another note – I wished they sold these wraps in the UK – they look incredible! Since its not warm enough to eat salads in the UK, I’m loving all wrap and sandwich related items for lunch right now so these are right up my street!

    1. Oh man, I wish they sold those wraps in the UK, too, Lucie! They are mighty tasty…and perfect for easy summer lunches! I do love a good wrap. A wrap takes a tasty salad and makes it exciting! I hope you are doing well over there ‘across the pond’! 🙂

  7. I would love to have these wraps for lunch. Usually, I make a big kettle of soup on the weekends and take that to work for lunch during the week. I love all the veggies you have in your wraps with the hummus, nice and healthy. Have a great weekend.

    1. A big kettle of soup is definitely a good way to do weekday lunches! But now that it’s getting warmer outside, we’ve shifted over to salads and wraps. These hummus wraps are a fun way to combine the two into one tasty (and easy) lunch! I hope you had an awesome weekend, Dawn! 🙂

    1. Yup, I hear ya, Kathy! I’m all about some warm, comfort food in the winter…but once the warmer temps arrive, I like a nice and easy veggie wrap. I’m sure you have a couple of veggies growing on your farm that would be a good addition to these wraps! 🙂

    1. These wraps are perfect for an easy, weekday summer lunch! And I may or may not have just eaten the wraps dipped straight into the hummus, too. Hope you had an awesome weekend, Manali! 🙂

  9. I can relate, as it’s the same with our cats. We said we wouldn’t allow them on the bed, but they are just so cute and cuddly. I can’t say no to them!
    I also can’t say no to hummus wraps. Kudos on the photos too, as I find photographing wraps a nightmare.

    1. I know, right, Dannii! We can say we won’t let the dogs on the bed…but they are just too cute and cuddly! Ethel used to sleep in a crate, but we couldn’t let Max on the bed and not Ethel. So now they both sleep on the bed! Haha…and yes, photographing wraps makes me want to break out in a cold sweat. I am so glad you appreciate that one! 🙂

  10. That meme was hilarious! LOL! Dogs and muffins. How do they come up with this stuff?

    These hummus wraps are a very cool way to have hummus. I love it and your video!!

    1. Tell me about it, Tamara! Dogs and blueberry muffins. I tell ya…the strangest stuff goes viral on Facebook. But of course, I don’t need to tell another blogger that, right? Thanks so much for the kind words. Now let’s grab some hummus and make wraps for lunch today. See you at noon? 🙂

    1. Nothing like a cat pouncing on your face at 4am, right, Megan? 🙂 Hummus sandwiches on toasted whole wheat bread are indeed delicious…but these wraps opened up a whole new world of yummy over here. Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting!
