Twisted Turkey Wrap

This recipe is great for a hot night when the last thing you want to do is stand over the stove!  With different flavors and textures it is a delicious dinner.  When looking at wraps, keep an eye on the calories, some are close to 300 calories!  There are a few options out there that are less in calories, higher in protein (look for 4+ grams), and higher in fiber (look for 5+ grams).  


La Tortilla Factory has big wraps that are 100 calories, and small ones that are only 50.  


Flat Outs are great, they are a little thicker than a tortilla, but thinner than a pita, and they are around 100 calories.
