Tip from our dietician Solenne

Wraps are perfect after surgery and in any season because you can customize them to your liking. Choose cold, nutritious ingredients in summer or when you have them for lunch. Or eat wraps warm on a chilly winter night as dinner. Wraps are also ideal as meal prep. Just cut all the ingredients in advance and heat up the protein sources and wraps when you plan to serve them.
