The toughest part of eating healthy is often meals on-the-go. It takes a little planning, but just a few minutes at home can save you from the trap of store-bought, packaged, processed foods.

We like wraps for a convenient snack or light meal, as they can easily be tailored to suit your personal tastes and dietary preferences. This IIN student, Catherine Vo, layers her wrap with fresh vegan ingredients.
