    This looks awesome. Do the nutritional facts include the greek yogurt? If so, do you have the nutrition facts without it? Thank you!

      Alysha, Nutritional Data doesn’t include the Greek yogurt. However, I desired add 1 tablepsoon nonfat Greek Yogurt
      to each wrap. This is about 25 more calories each, 0 Fat, 2 Sugars, 2 Carbs, 20 grams sodium. 🙂
