These super simple turkey wraps are the ultimate healthy snack or light lunch when you’re looking to make healthier choices! Uses simple deli turkey, fresh sliced peppers and cucumbers and a wedge of Laughing Cow Cheese. Just 3 Weight Watchers Smart Points!!
Several years ago, I had found myself quite overweight and looking to make some changes in my life. I had just had a baby, and as many of you can relate, was looking to take off the baby weight that was not budging. It was pretty obvious to me that I was not able to do it on my own – I need some help, and support. I needed a group of people that could identify and understand how I was feeling and who were also trying to make this change.
This was when I decided to join Weight Watchers. (For the record, I’m not being paid for this post to promote Weight Watchers – this is just my own unique experience.) I had actually done Weight Watchers in the past – it was after I had graduated college, and was getting ready for wedding. I didn’t want to walk down the aisle feeling overweight and uncomfortable in my own skin. I had lost nearly 40 lbs during that time, and knew I could do it again when I had the support around me.
One of the many fantastic things I rediscovered about Weight Watchers are all of the fantastic healthy options, meals and snack ideas – one of which are these super-simple Turkey & Veggie Snack Wraps! They are only 3 Weight Watchers Smart Points, and perfect for a filling snack. I’ll often times make two, and pair with an apple or salad for a healthy lunch. I’ve been making and eating these snack wraps for well over a decade, and haven’t looked back once!
These super-simple snack wraps start with long slices of veggies. I will typically slice bell peppers and cucumbers, however, feel free to include carrots, celery or any other veggies you enjoy. I will typically slice up two or three peppers at a time, along with a large English cucumber (you don’t have to peel!), and store in a big clear container. I will then pull out this container for healthy snacking all week long.
Your next step is adding a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese to a slice of deli turkey. There are many flavors of Laughing Cow – I personally enjoy the garlic and herb flavor – feel free to go with your favorite. These are only 30 calories (and 2 Smart Points) per wedge, and becomes the creamy filling of the snack wrap.
I also use a slightly thicker cut of deli turkey for these wraps. If you use a thin or shaved deli turkey, it will be quite hard to spread the cheese without the turkey tearing. I go with a simple, oven roasted deli turkey. I don’t particularly enjoy the flavor of “honey roasted” and sometimes smoked turkey can be too salty for me, so Oven-Roasted is usually what I chose. The turkey slice is only 1 Smart Point!
Next, simply place a few veggie strips in the center of the turkey slice that has been spread with cheese and roll up like a tortilla. That’s it! You’ll quickly discover that this simple snack wrap, takes maybe 2 minutes to make.
I love making and enjoying these during mid-afternoon when I get particularly “snacky.” The turkey has a nice amount of flavor, and the crunchy veggies make it rather substantial and filling.
These are also fantastic if you pack your lunch to take to work. Feel free to make a couple of these and slice into halves or quarters. Enjoy with apple slices, oranges or a yummy fruit salad – my Cucumber Melon Fruit Salad would be perfect!
