Egg and spinach wraps

Egg and spinach wraps
  • Serves: 2
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 7mins

A portable feast on the way to school. Boil the eggs the night before so they're all ready to slice in the morning.

Ingredients

  • 3 large British Lion eggs
  • 2 wholemeal wraps
  • 2 tsp sweet chilli dipping sauce
  • ½ red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 50g cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and grated
  • A handful of baby spinach leaves

Method

  1. Place the eggs in a small pan, cover with cold water and slowly bring to the boil. When the water is boiling, reduce to a simmer and cook for 7 mins.
  2. Drain, rinse in cold water, tap and peel off the shells. This could be done the night before and the eggs chilled until required.
  3. Slice the eggs. Place the wraps in a clean board, spread a teaspoon of sauce over each, leaving a 2cm clear border. Top with the spinach leaves, sliced egg, pepper, tomatoes, cucumbers and carrot.
  4. Drizzle over the remaining sauce. Fold over the side edges of the wraps, then roll up the wrap encasing the filling. Wrap in foil or paper and chill until ready to eat

Serve with mango chutney and salad and you’re ready to go! #lunchboxideas #britishlioneggs #britisheggweek #scotcheggs #letsgetcrackingHere are some of our top tips for avoiding that hangry feeling. For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
