Do you love wraps? Would you eat them all day every day if it wasn’t for high carb tortillas and other grain wrappers? Well, here are some healthy low-carb low-calorie alternatives you can use to make your wrappers either for dinner or lunch or even breakfast.
Low-Calorie Tortilla Alternatives
20 calories per one small piece. Not bad. Rice paper is a quick and nice alternative to a traditional wrapper that is low in carbs (4.35 grams) and calories. You can make spring rolls or just throw in anything you have in your fridge. It’ s also a great way to serve leftovers.

At 10 calories for one piece you get one gram of fiber, carbs, and protein, which is great. You can enjoy a sushi-like wrap at lunch or enjoy these at dinner. Try different sauces to keep things interesting.
Lettuce offers 2 calories in one large leaf. You can use kale (1 calorie per average leaf) or chard (9 calories) with just around one gram of carbs. How cool is that? Besides it will add more fiber and freshness to your diet.
Omelette is a great source of protein. It’s low carb and has only 93 calories (large omelette). Use it to wrap your fresh veggies and enjoy a high protein lunch packed with vitamins and minerals as well as healthy fats.
If you thought you’d miss out on a sweet dessert wrap, coconut wraps comes to the rescue at 60-70 cals per wrap with just 6 grams of carbohydrates and 1 gram protein. Pack your favorite berries and fruit in those and enjoy a nice sweet breakfast.
Make sure to watch out for unhealthy fillings and dressings as well. Opt for wild rice, sweet potato, fresh greens, and healthy sauces instead of traditional mayonaise and ketchup.
