Christmas Wraps

To put it lightly, I was a little concerned over sticking to my diet for the holidays.  To make things easier on myself, I set a goal of just not gaining anything.  If I could stay at the weight I began Christmas with, I would be happy, and I was successful!  Surprisingly, I was able to make smart food decisions with whatever food was served...thanks to what I've learned so far from dieting.  One way I figured to make it easier on myself was to make a dish that was super healthy and what ever the most unhealthy dish was, I ignored it and ate 2 servings of my dish.  Did I say no to my granny's chocolate cake?  HECK NO!  But I did say no to the KFC :)

So here is my super healthy recipe.  And what makes this recipe Christmas appropriate is the color.  If you look on the inside you see red, green, and purple.  See, healthy can be festive too!


Serving: 1
WW Points Per Serving: 3
Serving: 3 (What I served these as)
WW Points Per Serving: 1
 
Ingredients
2 bags of your favorite tortilla wrap or flatbread (I used spinach and herb)
1 large jar of roasted red peppers, sliced
1 small red onion, sliced
1 bag of fresh spinach
2 8 oz fat-free plain cream cheese
1 bunch of dill, chopped
1 bunch chives, chopped
Salt
Pepper
2 pinches garlic powder
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
1 package of turkey (I like the pepper turkey)

Directions
1 tub of cream cheese stir in the following:
Dill
½ of the lemon zest
½ of the lemon juice
A pinch of salt, pepper, and garlic powder

1 tub of cream cheese stir in the following:
Chives
½ of the lemon zest
½ of the lemon juice
A pinch of salt, pepper, and garlic powder

(You can add more or less of each ingredient depending on your own taste.  I love dill so I add a ton of it, but some people may think it is overbearing…same with the chives.  The spread is versatile and you can substitute any herb.)

On one tortilla layer the ingredients in the following order:
Cream cheese of choice
Small handful of onions
Small handful of roasted red peppers
Small handful of fresh spinach
2-3 slices of turkey meat on top

Then roll her up and repeat until you are out of wraps!  You don’t have to slice the wrap, but if you are making these for a party, slice them into smaller pieces.
Pin It!
