4 servings eaten over 1 lunch

This vegetarian lunch is super simple but could easily cost $5 to $7 if you purchased it at a cafe. Luckily, you’ll save quite a bit by packing this for you and your family in the morning. One challenge with wraps and sandwiches is to make sure they’re not soggy by lunchtime, which is why we recommend that you pack all the ingredients separately and assemble during lunch so your wrap is fresh and crunchy.


  • Cucumber, sliced - 1/2
  • Tomatoes, sliced - 2
  • Pitas - 4
  • Hummus - 1 1/3 cup
  • Apples - 4


  • Add meat | You can swap out the hummus for your favorite deli meat or make it an addition to the wrap
  • The paleo version | Again swap out hummus for your favorite deli meat and instead of a pita wrap, you can use a large leaf of romaine lettuce


  • Cucumbers | Slice. (Can be done up to 1 day ahead)
  • Tomatoes | Slice. (Can be done up to 1 day ahead)


Pack pitas, cucumbers, tomatoes, and hummus in a lunch container. You can set pita down first and place a piece of foil over it and then layer with cucumbers and tomatoes. Pack hummus in a separate small container. Pack with an apple and a spoon to help spread the hummus.
