Mission Foods Red Quinoa and Chia Wraps REVIEW

Our household have always enjoyed having wraps as a meal for either lunch or dinner, it's the perfect meal for getting all those veggies in, a healthier alternative and is super quick and easy to dish up.

I've said it so many times now and I'll say it again... I'm a time poor person. I have a busy lifestyle that leaves me limited time to prepare and cook dinner before its time to retire to bed. Our household would have wraps as a meal at least two a week for dinner. Mixing it up with either having tacos, burritos, beef wraps or chicken wraps are just some of the options we have.

Recently we were sent a box of goodies from Mission Foods. We are well known to this brand as we purchase there wraps, tortillas, tortilla corn chips and taco stuff and stands quite often.
Something that we haven't tried from their range before was the Red Quinoa and Chia wraps (RRP $4.79), reason being not all of my household is into their superfood's like myself. I was sceptical on how they would go down with the household and to be flexible with them I just stuck to the normal.
Thank goodness Mission did get us to try out the Red Quinoa and Chia wraps as there has been not one complaint received from them at all. It really does go to show you can't mock it before you try it.

Mission launched the Red Quinoa and Chia wraps over a year ago now (September 2014) but have recently re-launched the wraps with new packaging. Bold and with all the important information stated on the front.
No artificial colors or flavours, source of fibre and super soft might I add. All packaged in the fantastic resealable bag to keep that freshness and softness for longer.
Each pack contains 8 wraps that are about the size of a kids sized plate, perfect sizing in my eyes as I did find that the normal wraps that have been around for awhile are just a little too big in sizing and is not necessary as you are taking the first few bites of just the wrap bread.

Red Quinoa & Chia are considered some of the best superfood's for their health benefits. It's those things that you normally can't get your kids to eat from the plate so let's get a little cheeky and hide it in their food.

Quinoa was known as the 'mother of all grains' by the Aztecs. Quinoa has the perfect balance of amino acid essentials for human nutrition. 
Chia seeds are known as an ancient Aztec grain that contain a little bit of everything, they contain omega-3 fats, calcium, dietary fibre and protein. 

We actually really enjoy the Red Quinoa & Chia wraps for taco use nights. Lean mince meat filled with fresh produce like featured above spinach leaves, carrot, capsicum, tomato, spring onion, avocado, light cheese, jalapeƱos etc. What goes into your tacos when its taco night at your house?
