Low carb wraps

I found these in my local supermarket, and have used them for my lunches this week.

Following a low carb diet, I usually avoid the bread/bagel/wrap based lunches, but when I spotted these at 100 calories each, 4g carbs and 12g protein I just had to try them. The main ingredient is pea protein, so they are an easy way to get some more protein content.

Filling 1:

Cream cheese, smoked salmon, chopped green onions (scallions)

These held together really well, and the scallions added a bit of crunch to what might otherwise be a bit soft texture wise.

Filling 2:

Cottage cheese, roast red pepper, basil, and marmite.

Smearing a good teaspoon of marmite over the base before adding the toppings is a tasty way to add flavour, and the roast red pepper was a good alternative to tomato.

Filling 3:

Ricotta, roast broccoli, artichokes, plenty of salt and pepper

Ricotta can be a bit bland and chalky, so next time I’d add some jalapeños give it more of a kick. Good way to use up leftover veggies.

Overall verdict:

The wraps are lovely and soft, easy to roll and don’t disintegrate like some other low carb alternatives. I accompanied each wrap with a mini salad of either tomatoes and celery, kimchi, sugar snaps and cucumber. I will definitely be making these part of my usual meal planning.
