ARE WRAPS GOOD TO EAT ON A DIET?
It depends what type of diet you are on, but wraps can be a great healthy choice for anyone on a diet. If you are trying to lose weight and avoiding high-calorie food, wraps are an amazing option for a healthy meal.
Wraps can be full of calories and fat if you aren’t careful about what goes inside. Choose a healthy wrap that is an appropriate size and then carefully choose your ingredients. Wraps are a great way to get lean proteins and healthy veggies to give you a boost of nutrients and keep you feeling full and satisfied throughout the day.
Be creative with your fillings and toppings, and you’ll find some delicious wraps that will make your diet anything but boring. Wraps are also the perfect food to pack and bring with you for lunch or dinner on-the-go.

ARE WRAPS HEALTHIER THAN BREAD?
Sandwiches and wraps can both be healthy choices, depending on what type you choose and what you put inside.
Many wraps have just as many calories as 2 slices of bread, depending on the brand and size. A 10-inch tortilla or wrap can have around 150-200 calories, and the typical bread is about 120-180 calories for a sandwich.
Wraps may always seem like a healthy option, but restaurant tortillas can be 300 calories, and once you add all the fillings you end up with a high-calorie meal.
The best way to choose between a sandwich and a wrap is to pay attention to the nutrition facts label. Look at serving size, calories, total carbohydrates, and fiber amount. Choose whole grain bread or tortillas whenever possible for more fiber and nutrition. Nutrition information is also available at many restaurants, or you can make your own wraps at home by following the recipe below for a healthy wrap.
This recipe is made using whole wheat tortillas, which is a good choice. Load up your wrap with lean proteins and some fresh veggies on the side and then you’ll have a healthy, balanced meal.
- 2 cups shredded chicken, cooked (I used rotisserie chicken)
- 1 cup pepper jack cheese, shredded
- 1 avocado, diced
- ¼ cup ranch dressing
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
- non-stick cooking spray
- 4 whole wheat tortillas
- Spread ½ cup chicken, ¼ cup cheese, ¼ avocado, 1 tablespoon of ranch, and a little bit of cilantro in the middle of a tortilla. Roll up and tuck the ends in, like a burrito.
- Place the wrap on a grill (I even just used a George Foreman grill) and cook until grill marks appear (about 3-4 minutes).
