Creativity is the key to sticking to a healthy diet! After all, it’s easy to stray when you eat the same thing day in and day out. I don’t know about you, but broccoli, chicken and brown rice get boring. I like to keep things fun and exciting with my delicious and healthy wraps.
Wraps are so easy and extremely versatile. You can add any protein and use a variety of sauces and ingredients to change the texture and flavor. They can be gluten free, vegetarian, high carb or low carb— it just depends on your particular goals and nutritional needs. So consider “wrapping things up” and adding variety to your diet! With my easy build-your-own-wrap breakdown, it is super easy to create your own variation!
