Turkey Cheddar, Sweet & Spicy Low Carb Wrap
Healthy and low NET carb meals have been part of my eating habits for over 4 years. Frequently, I crave my favorite gourmet wraps but don't want all the unhealthy carbs and calories that come with it.The secret to this recipe is the nutty, sweet and spicy mustard sauce which has tons of flavor and little crunch. You already decided to give up bread. But the thought of eating one more bowl of salad or veggies for lunch leaves you wanting something different.High-sugar condiments means high carbs and who wants a "dry" and tasteless wrap. The key is reading labels and a little math. The fruit spread I used in this recipe has 12 carbs(carbohydrates) per 1 Tbsp and the mustard has 0 carbs 1 Tbsp finely chopped walnuts has 1 carb. Total carbs equal (13) divide it by 4 servings and you have less than 3 carbs. per serving. Which doesn't break your carb allowance bank for the day.There are a lot of apps out there to keep track of your daily NET carbs but I generally use google search, which is a quick and easy way to figure out carbs without sacrificing a bunch of personal information just to use their app.I use Mission's Carb Balance tortillas that are High Fiber, Zero Sugar and low in NET CARBS. I was at the grocery store last week and bought Mission's NEW Carb Balance Spinach Herb Soft Taco Flour Tortilla. I'm really excited to add another layer of flavor into my wrap recipes. Woohoo!
- 8-12 slices HillShire Farm Ultra Thin Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
- 4 Mission Whole Wheat Carb Balance Tortilla Wrap or gluten-free wrap
- 12 slices Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar
- 4 Tbsp Dijon Style Mustard

- 1/2 Honey Crisp, Gala or Braeburn Apple thinly sliced
- 1 pkg Romaine, Spinach or Mixed Greens washed, rinsed and dried
- Finely chop nuts and combine with Dijon style mustard and sweet and spicy fruit spread in a small bowl. ( I like to use chipolte or jalepeno flavored berry fruit jams)
- Spread a generous layer of the mustard mixture on your choice of tortilla.
- Layer with leafy greens, meat, cheddar cheese and top with thinly sliced apple.
- Roll-up and serve.
Store in air-tight container in the refrigerator up to 3-4 days, if they last that long. Try different meat, cheese and lettuce combinations. Substitute your favorite veggies for the meat. Are you gluten free? Mission also makes a great gluten-free wrap. Combine your favorite sweet and spicy fruit spread with any Dijon style mustard. Add your choice of chopped nuts for added protein and crunch. As a nurse, when breaks, lunch or supper meals are nearly impossible and/or I’m trying not to binge eat through a 12 hour night shift. I always pack what I think I will have time to eat, and then one of these wraps for what I may only have time to eat. These wraps are a nutritional way to keep hunger at bay, blood sugar levels steady, and preventing unhealthy trips to the vending machine or stops to fast food places. Kids love these. Quick and easy to make and great for bento/lunch boxes. Or just make a bunch ahead and store in the refrigerator as grab-n-go snacks for busy days. Enjoy!
