Get back on the healthy track this spring. Try one of these healthy wrap sandwiches to make nutritious and delicious changes to your daily routine when dining out in New York City. By Sarah Shaker.
That's A Wrap, Angelica Kitchen
Go meatless at Angelica Kitchen with their popular That’s A Wrap, featuring raw zucchini, daikon, carrots, balsamic marinated beets, creamy hummus, dill pickles, sunflower sprouts, arugula, and a dash of hot sauce folded and wrapped in a soft whole wheat tortilla. This East Village eatery offers only plant-based cuisine, perfect for vegans and veggie lovers in NYC.
The California Veggie Burger Wrap, Bareburger
Any burger at Bareburger can be made into a healthy wrap at all 10 NYC locations. From veggie to bison, each burger patty is available in either an iceberg lettuce wrap (for a no-carb sandwich) or a wheat flour wrap. The California Veggie Burger is a flavorful healthy choice featuring sharp cheddar, hass avocado, romaine lettuce, tomato, raw red onion and cilantro lime dressing. If you prefer meat, feel good about any of their options — all Bareburger meats are free-range, pasture raised, antibiotic and hormone free.
Falafel Wrap, Nanoosh
Love falafel, but trying to avoid fried foods? Dine at Nanoosh, where they serve a baked Falafel Wrap with hummus, Mediterranean salad, organic greens and pickles for a light, yet still flavorful Middle Eastern favorite. Carnivores should try the Nanoosh Wrap with all natural ground beef, hummus, tahini, organic onions, organic mushrooms and organic greens. Or go with a basic Hummus Tahini Wrap, stuffed with hummus, tahini, organic greens and Mediterranean salad, as Nanoosh is one of our favorite spots for this popular chickpea dip.
Thai Chicken Wrap, Terri
Enjoy Asian flavors at this popular Vegan and Kosher restaurant, known for their juice cleanses. The Thai Chicken Wrap features “chicken” (a non-meat protein), Thai peanut sauce, lettuce, carrots and mixed peppers. There are a range of healthy wraps at Terri’s to check out like The Breakfast Scramble, wrapping scrambled tofu, Italian “sausage”, spinach, daiya cheddar and hot sauce or Hummus Avocado with smoked tofu, hot peppers, lettuce and tomato.
From soups to salads, this casual Midtown restaurant is a great spot for a quick, healthy lunch. The Tunisian Tuna Wrap is stuffed with red peppers, olive tapenade, sliced egg, harissa sauce, tomatoes and arugula. Pair your wrap with one of their fresh pressed juices like the Afternoon Lift, blending celery, spinach, ginger, lemon and carrot for a non-caffeine wake-up call during a slump in the office.
Wake up to a healthy breakfast wrap at B Cup Café in the East Village. Enjoy two eggs, goat cheese, arugula, fresh tomatoes and kalamata olives wrapped up to enjoy at the coffee shop or to go en route to the office. They’re also serving one of our favorite yogurt parfaits, covered in freshly sliced fruit and granola.
