Low Carb Spinach Wrap

Low Carb Spinach Wrap

This low carb spinach wrap is a quick and easy low carb lunch idea. After a long day, I made this low carb spinach wrap in about five minutes with a handful of ingredients.

Of course, spinach is one of the main ingredients used on a low carb spinach. And with good cause because spinach is a healthier alternative to lettuce.

According to Dr. Mercola, this dark green leafy vegetable is full of beneficial vitamins and minerals such as vitamin K, A and C. In addition, spinach contains magnesium, iron, potassium, calcium, niacin, zinc, manganese and others.

With spinach being loaded with so many good things, among other things,  it can help protect the cardiovascular system and help reduce high blood pressure.

Let’s continue with the wrap…

I made this low carb spinach wrap with an outer organic coconut wrap. Then, I arranged a bed of spinach over the low carb wrap. Afterwards, I added chopped turkey as an initial low carb meat, but chicken breast works even better. Next, I added a few thinly sliced tomato wedges.  I then sprinkled them with a few capers to add an additional burst of flavor with each bite of your low carb spinach wrap. And finally, you can add prosciutto or a strip of bacon.

1 Organic Coconut Wrap

2 Tbsp. Fat Free Ranch Dressing

Conclusion

Another easy low carb recipe! But, I have a few suggestions for keeping this low carb spinach wrap relatively dry. First, be sure to use mostly dry spinach leaves. If the leaves are too wet, the wrap may get a bit soggy. You can also omit the tomato seeds to keep the low carb wrap dry, And finally, do not drown your low carb spinach wrap in salad dressing. Otherwise, this too can make the wrap lose its integrity.

So, that’s it! You can try some more low carb wrap recipes. But, let me know how you enjoy this low carb spinach wrap.
