ARE WRAPS HEALTHY FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
Wraps can be healthy or unhealthy, it all depends on how you make them. No food should be off-limits in a healthy diet, it is all about calorie balance and moderation.
To make your wrap a healthy meal for weight loss, look for lower calorie options such as smaller tortilla wrap sizes, low calorie dressing, and lean proteins.
Here are some tips on how to make your wraps a healthy choice.
When making a wrap, choose a whole-grain or whole-wheat tortilla because whole grains can help you control your weight. You can also just use lettuce wraps.
Try using lemon juice, salsa, or hummus instead of a dressing that is high in fat, sugar, and calories. Be careful not to use too much meat or cheese, that can add too much fat and calories. If you like fattier meats, go low on the meat and heavy on the vegetables.
Healthy protein is especially important as part of a wrap. Protein helps you to feel full and can help you lose weight because it delays the onset of hunger, so wraps with healthy protein are amazing choices for weight loss. Lean proteins such as chicken breast, turkey, tofu, canned tuna or beans are a great option.
Finally, load up on the veggies for the finishing touch, try adding tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, zucchini, carrots, jicama, and cabbage. Get creative.
Be careful of store-bought or restaurant made wraps, they often appear healthy but have hidden calories in many forms. It is better to make your own.
HOW TO MAKE WRAPS GLUTEN FREE OR LOW CARB
If you want to try wraps but are on a gluten-free or low-carb eating plan, there are some simple tricks to making sure you are getting a healthy meal that still tastes delicious.
Many tortillas used for wraps are high in carbohydrates and calories, and they can be very large. This can make a nutritious wrap a little less healthy. Try a smaller wrap, or try using lettuce wraps for any wrap recipe, you’ll be surprised at how much you like it.
When you are making your wrap, load up on low-carb vegetables such as cucumbers, lettuce, and bell peppers.
HOW TO MAKE WRAPS VEGAN OR VEGETARIAN
If you are looking for wrap recipes that are vegan or vegetarian, a lot of wrap recipes can be easily adaptable to your eating style. Wanting to try the buffalo chicken wrap? Try using cauliflower instead of chicken. You can also use tofu or chick peas in similar recipes that call for chicken or turkey.
Tofu, beans, quinoa, hummus, and extra vegetables can easily be used in wraps in place of meat.
No matter your eating habits, you can still have a satisfying lunch with a few of these simple hacks.
