Whole grain flaxseed wrap-wiches: low-carb, high protein and fiber weight loss recipes

My  readers know by now that I've lost 100 pounds using food swaps and self-styled strategies. I share these tips and recipes on this blog. So today, we're talking about wraps. Wraps (as in sandwiches on flatbread) have a cult following weight loss because dieters mistakenly assume they are lower in calories and carbs. But a wrap sandwich is often more highly caloric because flatbreads are not created equal. Even the "veggie" ones which appear to be full of green vegetable goodness are in fact sugary carb-laden and dyed green *headdesk*.
So here are low-calorie wraps using lavash and flatbread that are low-carb, high protein and high fiber and a good source of ALA omega 3 (MUFAs). These have no saturated or transfats and only 1 gram of sugar. My three go-to brands are Joseph's, Flatout and Fit & Active--a comparable, much less expensive Aldi version of Flatout. Aldi is $2.29 for six breads compared to $3.99 for Flatout. 

<---As you can see, my package is all gone, so yeah...
They have an amazing 1 gram of protein per 10 calories (90-100 calories per wrap) plus multi-grain, multi-seed flax fiber. Enjoy as a breakfast sammy (hate that word but hey, it's very popular and when in Rome... :)

Low carb breakfast wrap-wich

Roll or fold and enjoy!

Dear fellow weight loss seeker, are you sick of denying yourself and still feeling hungry?Are you tired of counting calories and still not shedding pounds? Try bean counting-- as in white kidney beans (or the extract of them). These magical carb interceptors help you metabolize carbohydrates better so you burn fat.
