frequently asked questions

What do you fill wraps with?

You can get as creative as you like when making a wrap and it all comes down to your personal preference and what you are in the mood for. Add in protein like grilled chicken or turkey along with some veggies and a dressing. Or you may keep it vegetarian and add things like falafel, hummus, beans, and other veggies. The options are endless but the rule of thumb, add some source of protein, veggies, and cheese or dressing.

Are chicken wraps OK for weight loss?

Let’s talk about what is going into the wrap, to begin with. If you stuff your wrap with lean protein and some veggies, then yes they are healthy and a good option for weight loss. If you add ingredients that are high in calories, then No, your chicken wrap will not be a good option for weight loss.

What goes well with chicken wraps?

Chicken wraps are best paired with chips, baked fries or potato wedges, salads like quinoa salads or coleslaw, veggies like sauteed green beans or Brussel sprouts, pasta salads, corn on the cob, or chips and guacamole.
