These recipes not only taste delicious but are easy to cook and pack for the commute—and they’ll leave you satisfied all afternoon.

These wraps are like a salad in disguise. The secret is the Moroccan ras el hanout seasoning which transforms plain beef into a flavorful meal you’ll want to eat every day.
Broccoli and Chicken Wraps
Nutrient-packed broccoli and protein-packed chicken come together for a midday wrap that won’t weigh you down. Store-bought pesto and Greek yogurt combine to provide flavor and convenience to this lunch favorite.
