10 Fruit Wraps Of Low Calories Yet Rich Nutrients For Breakfast

Wraps are a healthy alternative and can be a good lunch when you are on the go. You do, however need to be careful when choosing what wrap to eat as some wraps have more calories than others.

A group called Safefood conducted a survey of sandwich shops, cafes, and delis in the UK and Ireland. They analyzed 240 wraps and found that the average amount of calorie contained in the wraps ranged between 465 for chicken and salad and 564 for chicken and Caesar salad. They also discovered that many wraps were larger than a regular serving size.

The best and safest way to know what you are eating when you eat a wrap is to make it yourself. Also it is best to steer away from sauces and condiments that can often be found in wraps. A safe bet is to make a fruit wrap. These are packed with nutrients and when you make it yourself you know exactly what you are eating. Here are 10 fruit wrap recipes, so you can easily make yourself a healthy breakfast or lunch meal.

Physicians recommend high HDL to total cholesterol levels in the blood for the same reason.”
