Collard Greens Rainbow Wrap – New Veggie Challenge

Last week I took a grocery store tour with Revitalize, a functional group that focuses on women’s health. Today’s recipe is from Beth Kaczmar who told me it was okay to “cheat” and use her photo of her Collard Greens Rainbow Wrap.

It looks delicious, doesn’t it? This is a photo of the photo on her phone!collard greens wrap veggie challenge

I think it’s a great way to swap out the 200 calorie spinach herb wrap that has 34 grams of carbohydrates for something REAL that has more like 11 calories, only 2 carbs and less than 10% of the sugar!

Here’s what Beth says about rainbow collard greens wrap veggie sandwich:

“My Collard Green Rainbow Wrap is something different from your ordinary wrap. It’s low in carbs, packed with vitamins A,C,K, B12, B6, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, folate and rounded out with monounsaturated fat, fiber and protein to give you a feeling of fullness and satisfaction!”

Collard Green Rainbow Wrap
Several large Collard Green leaves (washed and dried)
1/2 Cup Cherry Tomato, diced
1 Large Carrot, diced
1/4 Cup Yellow Corn
1 Whole Ripe Avocado, mashed
1/4 Cup Black Beans, rinsed
4 T Purple Onion, diced
1 Cup Shredded Chicken Breast (can leave out if desired)
1 T Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 tsp Garlic Salt
1/4 tsp Fresh Ground Pepper

*In a medium size bowl, add all ingredients. (Mash avocado well before mixing in). Mix everything together well. Lay collard green leaves out flat. Add about 1/2 cup of mixture to each leaf. Roll as you were rolling a burrito.

Thank you Beth! This is MMMMMmmmm healthy!
