Recently my roommate, Rachel, played host for a Pampered Chef party.  Prior to the food demonstrations we snacked on different hors d’oeuvres that Rachel prepared with her sister, Beth.  Her sister, Beth, who is studying to become a nutritionist and who is also interning with Meal Makeover Moms , brought ingredients for sandwich “sushi,” a quick, easy and healthy snack.  I thought they were so cute and fun that I made a few varieties of my own for lunch this week.

Here are some guidelines to making your own!

Whole wheat wraps (rectangular – easiest for rolling)

veggies cut into strips (pickles, carrots, peppers, cucumbers, etc.)

Protein (slices of ham, turkey, roast beef)

spread (cream cheese, hummus, guacamole)

To begin, spread a layer of your favorite spread on top of the wrap.

Preparing the fillings!

Then place a layer of coldcuts down and put veggies on top in parallel strips.

Roll the wrap up together with the strips of veggies.

Roll everything together...

Finally, cut the wrap into 1 1/2 inch pieces and serve.  Enjoy!

How do you give your favorite snacks and meals a fun, healthy twist?

Voila! Yummy Sandwich Sushi!
