Tortillas can be a tasty and healthy vessel for just about any meal. While super-sized wraps can have more calories than 3 or 4 slices of bread, 8 or 9-inch tortillas are perfectly portioned. The 5 recipes here use flour tortillas. For a gluten-free option, swap for corn tortillas instead.

Breakfast
Mix and match any-style eggs with your favorite toppings, including vegetables; it’s a great way to get in some extra servings of veggies.

Recipe: Cook Once, Please Everyone: Breakfast Burritos

Lunch
Turn leftover chicken into a protein and flavor-packed lunch. Using yogurt instead of mayo keeps this chicken salad light and fresh.

Recipe: Schoolhouse Wraps

Snacks
Slice wraps filled with avocado and turkey or seafood into bite-sized pieces to make fabulous finger food for after school or the gym.

Recipes: Turkey-Avocado Wraps and Tuna and Crab Wraps
