For athletes, getting enough protein in their daily diet is very important. Protein not only helps with muscle growth, it also facilitates muscle repair. After a practice or a workout, it’s good to have a healthy meal or snack packed with protein.

STACK talked with sports dietician Leslie Bonci to find out how to make three delicious, quick and easy, high-protein wraps.
1. Chicken Hummus Wrap
This wrap adds a new twist to the plain chicken wrap. Spread hummus on the tortilla before adding other ingredients. Since hummus is a bean, it packs extra protein. After the hummus, add the chicken and any vegetable that sound good to you. That’s three protein sources in one easy wrap.
2. Tuna Wrap
This wrap is as easy as it sounds. Take tuna and spread it on the tortilla. Tuna is a great source of protein, but if you need ore, add cheese to it. That makes two great protein sources on a great tasting wrap.
3. Peanut Butter, Honey and Banana Wrap
This might be the easiest wrap of all. Spread peanut butter on the tortilla, then add honey and a sliced banana. If you need more protein, sprinkle some protein powder on the tortilla before spreading the peanut butter.
