Fresh and Healthy Paleo Wraps

As spring (slowly) makes way for summer and the sun shows its BEAUTIFUL face brighter and longer, it’s SO MUCH EASIER to eat grain-free. Salads and grain-free wraps make for an appetizing (and easy) lunch. Have you tried swapping out tortillas/bread for leaves? If not, you MUST. It just feels good. I always feel light and energetic after eating a lettuce or cabbage wrap.

Here are some ideas for Paleo-friendly wraps. Sorry, I don’t have pictures! Above is actually a picture of my Paleo Baja Fish Tacos. You’ll just have to use your imagination for imagery of the wrap suggestions below. I have made them all, and they’re ALL fantastic. Note: I use avocado in all three of the recipe ideas. If you don’t like avocado, feel free to omit or substitute mayo for the creamy goodness that avocado provides.

Ideas for fresh + healthy Paleo wraps:

For all suggestions, use 1-2 large leaves of cabbage or lettuce (romaine works great) per wrap. You can also use lightly blanched collard greens or sheets of nori… The options are endless!

1. Sausage-Apple-Herb

Into each lettuce or cabbage wrap, place 3-4 apple slices (thinly cut), 2-3 big ol’ avocado slices, 4-5 fresh basil leaves, and a grilled chicken sausage (cut in half lengthwise). Savor.

2. BLT + Avo

Into each lettuce or cabbage wrap, place 2-4 slices of crisply cooked bacon, 2-3 big ol’ avocado slices, and 2-3 slices of tomato. Sprinkle with a bit of kosher flake salt and ground black pepper if desired. Devour.

3. Veggie

Into each lettuce or cabbage wrap, place a handful of alfalfa (or broccoli or radish or onion) sprouts, a sliced pickle, 2-3 big ol’ avocado slices, a squeeze of mustard, a small handful of shredded carrots, and a sprinkling of toasted sunflower seeds. Enjoy.

    Howdy! This post could not be written much better!
    Going through this article reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I will send this article to him.
    Fairly certain he’s going to have a good read. Thanks for
