Falafel Lunch Wraps with Harvarti and homemade tzatziki

This post is in collaboration with the Health Star Rating system

I used to really struggle with judging how ‘healthy’ food was when doing my big food shop for the week. Sure – fresh fruit and veggies is a no brainer but as I started venturing into the middle aisles of the supermarket I  found myself becoming more unsure of what to buy to make sure I got home with everything I needed to have healthy, wholesome meals. 

I started looking into how to read the back of the packets – learning what to look out for and what to avoid (goodbye 36gms of sugar per 100gm serve!) but when in a rush, I sometimes made bad decisions and would end up with work lunches that were white pasta bake with a creamy white sauce. Delicious? Yes. A really great lunch option for your mid week lunch? Not really. Cue sluggish 3pm drop in energy and focus at work.
