EAT

Houmous & Falafel Half Wrap[2] cals: 235 protein: 7.2 fibre: 4.5

Spicy Bean Buritto Hot Wrap cals: 600 protein: 19.8 fibre: 7.4
Yes this Buritto is high in calories, but beans act as a weight-loss food, says Dr. Joel Fuhrman[6] a plant-based expert in disease prevention. ‘Beans are digested slowly, which promotes satiety and helps to prevent food cravings[7]. Sprinkle with some alfalfa sprouts (you can keep them on your desk) for a powerful alkaline hit.
