3-Minute Lunch: Salmon and Chickpea Lettuce Wraps

In my opinion, the perfect lunch on a busy week day is first and foremost delicious and satisfying, but is also nutritious, light yet filling, quick and easy to make, and leaves me feeling energized to tackle the rest of my day. These Salmon and Chickpea Lettuce Wraps meet all of those requirements.

They only take about 3 minutes to whip up. Plus, they are bursting with a plethora of Mediterranean-style flavors, and they are packed with nutrient-rich foods. The salmon provides filling protein and heart healthy omega-3 fats, the olive oil adds more healthy fats, and the chickpeas provide more protein as well as fiber, which helps to keep you satisfied and keep afternoon cravings at bay.
