Wrap up crunch and flavor, with low carbs and tons of nutrients!
While carbohydrates are good for us in moderation, many people are looking to cut back just a bit on their carbohydrate intake. Sandwiches, noodle and pasta dishes, and rice bowls are great lunch options, but what do you do if you want to limit your carbs, without being confined to the salad and soup bar? Try a wrap! We love to wrap up our favorite fillings in spinach or whole wheat wraps, which contain healthy, complex carbohydrates, and a host of nutrients. And they’re lower in carbs than traditional sandwiches, while still giving you just a bit of that carb fix you may crave in the middle of the day.
These Sprouts, Veggies, and Cheese Wraps are loaded with antioxidant-rich vegetables and protein-rich cheese, making each one a well-balanced, clean eating wrap. Sprouts provide a delicious crunch, and are high in fiber and B vitamins, while being super low in calories. We’ve shredded our carrots and romaine lettuce for great texture. Diced tomatoes provide tangy sweetness and antioxidants such as lycopene, while cucumbers add crunch and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
We’ve used low-fat cheese to provide protein and delicious cheesy flavor, while remaining low in excess fat and calories. And for a burst of fantastic flavor, try one of our favorite clean eating dressings or spreads, such as guacamole or hummus. Skinny Ms. loves to provide you with healthy ways to spice up your clean eating meals, and this wrap is no exception.
